This restaurant is located in a unique spot within the Queens Park Oval compound. From the outside, you cannot tell the exclusive foods that are prepared within. The ambiance is excellent for any occasion. It is our favourite eating spot whether lunch or dinner. What...More

It’s a very nice restaurant, with some touch of elegance and with a very complete buffet service. You could taste or have salad, soup, main course, desert and a glass of wine.

I had the lunchtime buffet which seemed good value with a wide variety of choice. My glass of Prosecco was flat so make sure that they open a new bottle rather than squeeze the last drop out from the evening before.

There for business. Nice buffet provided though I wish we actually had a view of the cricket. Nice place though.

Went with friends and family and had an extremely amazing experience. It was restaurant week and the choices of dishes, the display of the dishes and the service was amazing . One of the few places in Trinidad that gives you top notch service.

Always consistently good and the service is great as well. Full five course meal and then some. The buffet offers a lot of variety

Dishes are attractive to view, and there is a wide variety. However the food is not as tasty especially the local dishes. Service is selective, nor everyone gets the good, attentive treatment.
