It was the final night of TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO RESTAURANT WEEK 2017 and what better way to end it off than by dining at one of the participating restaurants in Tobago! 😀… yupsssss I had a tobago trip planned sooooo why not head out to one of the restaurants right?!?😀
My choice was R&C Taste of de Caribbean conveniently located at Sandy Point Beach Club in Crown Point.
Priced at $300TTD per person, I knew I was on for a treat after viewing the menu! My choice of appetizer was conch fritters. Other options included a salad, soup and chicken wings. I was very much pleased with my decision! They were perfectly seasoned and fried with a delightful crunch and came with a delicious sauce on the side!
Main course was out of this world. I chose lobster with mashed potatoes. Do you see the size of it? (Pic below)… it was HUGE! I was pleasantly surprised since most times all you get is the tail at various restaurants. I love lobster so I was surely in my glee! The garlic butter sauce was excellent with the perfectly done lobster.
Dessert time was here and I opted for.. of course… cheesecake 😀 which had an amazingly smooth texture and tasted delicious. The one negative I’d say about it was the temperature it was served at…. a little colder would have been perfect!
In total hubby and I were there for an hour and a half which was fine for me. Waiting time was not long.
This restaurant had an outdoor setting which is ideal for the dining ‘island feel’. However, with that comes a few unwanted night flying insects from time to time (none that wanted to steal my food though… they just wanted to harass me) … 😂🙈….but don’t be deterred as the food would surely make up for that.
Also… when having dinner at this spot don’t sit beneath the light. I think that was the problem at no other folks had extra company 🤷🏼♀️
One thing to note as well is that I personally don’t like paper menus… I would prefer something thicker and firm or laminated that would not bend as easily… makes it a lot more presentable…(I’m a big fan of great presentations)
I’m definitely giving the food a big thumbs up though despite the paper menu and the extra company (the few night insects). The ambiance to me was perfect for a lovely date night and also gives that island feel.
I’ll say you should give them a try for sure! Let me know your thoughts. Leave me a comment or send me a message via:
