My wife and I went to the Saturday evening BBQ. Good food on a charcoal BBQ with a few beers for TTD200. We went the following week with our daughter and her boyfriend. Same food on a Gas BBQ and perhaps a few more beers and an ice cream for TTD700. Felt ripped off.

OMG the coconut bake, don't have toast and do have the coconut bake, I'm not sure any breakfast will ever be the same without it.

Had a one hour pitstop here while passing through Castara and I can honestly say they made the best iced coffee/cafe frappe I have ever had! That's coming from someone who lives in London and has coffee all over the place. We had several! Lovely little spot, very friendly staff and we would revisit any time! Highly recommend!

Visited it, since it was the only open facility in Castara at about 11:00 Am. A simple bar, as about 10.000 similar bars around the world. Serving some basic snacks and sandwiches. Was promised to get a real espresso and after asking twice whether they really have an espresso machine (and positively answered), we got some dark brown liquid.

Toured over lot of Tobago and could not find a better place for breakfast which was on our doorstep. If you are touring do not pass. You will be set up for the day!

We enjoyed breakfast at Chenos and it was very very good! If you hike to the Castara waterfall and Come back sweating you can cool down with a few Carib, Cheno have a license to sell alcohol! And don 't miss the Steelpan Night! Delicious food and good entertainment.

The Coffee Shop or Cheno's Coffee Shop was the only place that served breakfast during my stay in Castara. That being said, the food was delicious and of a proper portion that I was not left wanting more after I was done. I arrived minutes before closing, around 11 am, but the English lady who works there provided service with... More
