5 best restaurants in Tobago
Our favourite places to eat. Enjoy awesome food and stunning decor.
El Pescador
Snap up seafood and sunsets
The sublime setting opposite Buccoo's jetty gives El Pescador probably the best views from any restaurant on the island. Panoramic vistas across the harbour of the pretty fishing village mean you can watch the boats haul in lobster and snapper while you have breakfast or lunch, and feast on fresh seafood and Argentinian-style steaks prepared by a Venezuelan chef for dinner. The sunsets here are incredible and, accompanied by aged local rum or the fine house wine, you’re in for a treat.

Salsa Kitchen
Top for tapas
For small, tasty plates of Caribbean-inspired tapas, head to Salsa Kitchen. All dishes are cooked fresh from scratch, with the greatest hits including Seafood Ajillo (shrimp, squid and fish in garlic and parsley) and Lamb Caribbean (saddle in a tamarind sauce). Zingy salads are another highlight, along with speciality pizzas such as the Four Cheese - with blue, local feta, Parmesan and mozzarella cheeses. All are complemented by well-priced wines, spirits and mixers served in a friendly atmosphere.

Castara Retreats Restaurant
Unbeatable international cuisine
Set within a small but highly acclaimed eco resort, Castara Retreats Restaurant offers an alternative to local-style food, with dishes not available in many of the village eateries. Soak up the sunshine over the Caribbean Sea while sampling starters like gazpacho, mains including fresh grilled fish, carrot and ricotta ravioli and goat tagine, followed by decadent desserts. Quench your thirst with a freshly squeezed juice or cordial from the bar, and for something stronger don’t miss the rum punch!
Castara Retreats, North Side Road, Castara 001010, Tobago

Kings Bay Café
Rustic roadside gem
Overlooking a bay near the Argyle Waterfall, Kings Bay is a homely café serving fresh grilled fish – anything from mahi mahi to wahoo – along with meats including chicken, lamb and beef. The hype surrounding the burgers makes them the best on the island, from the grilled tuna-steak burger to the homemade beef burger with chips and coleslaw. Best visited for lunch, the café closes at 6pm on weekdays and doesn’t have an alcohol license – although you can bring your own or enjoy a cup of aromatic coffee.
524 Main Road, Tobago

Pasta Gallery
Inimitable Italian
Located in Crown Point, this is the place to go for hearty, traditional Italian pasta. The simple menu is classic and full of comforting dishes – from spaghetti with seafood to authentic Bolognese and a delicious vegetable lasagne. Crispy salads can be served on the side, along with tangy tomato bruschetta and garlic bread – but portions are large so save space for dessert! Takeaway is also available, and interesting artwork by local artists is hung on the walls and offered for sale.
