We stayed on the Big bay side of Castara so had to make our way over to Little bay to give this restaurant a try. It rained the night we decided to go and have to say the trail was a little hazardous to get to the smaller bay, but glad we decided to go. The night we were there... More

The Boat House Restaurant is the only place to eat on Little Castara Bay. The main village has several eating places. The small beach is beautiful, with lovely sand, palm-fringed. The restaurant is beside the sand and from it you can watch pelicans fishing and frigate birds swooping. Its a very relaxed place with a relatively small menu of great... More

We spent sunset here almost everyday with a Stag or a rum punch - highly recommended you do the same! Lunch was great, and drums on Wednesday nights and Sunday afternoon pizza!

Fabulous location, friendly staff and superb food. Drums and limbo on a Wednesday evening well worth a visit and just the best pizza for Sunday lunch. Loved the cocktails.

My lamb chops (mutton?) boiled with assorted veg not really to my liking. My partner had coconut chicken which she liked. Typical Tobago cuisine which I found a bit expensive for what it was. Lovely location though and friendly welcoome.

If you visit Castara or spend your holidays here, please make sure to go to the Boathouse to enjoy a few sundowner and taste the delicious food! The Coconut Shrimps are delicious and the Pizza is very good, too. We spent our holidays in Alibaba Seabreeze Appartements so we were just a stones throw away from the Boathouse. Enjoyed a... More

What is fresh from the sea; king fish, lobster, mahi mahi, prawns.. or goat, pork, chicken.. is served with a plate of juicy combinations of lokal vegetables seasoned in a Caribbean traditional way. If you have only one chance - aim on Wednesday nights... More

My wife and I stumbled across this restaurant on our honeymoon in 2012. We had the coconut shrimp( spicy). It was amazing. We returned with high expectations, but with the reservation that the mind sometimes makes the memory better than the experience was. Well we were absolutely blown away again. It was even better than we remembered. The menu on... More
