Our annual holiday to Tobago always includes a trip to Salsa Kitchen. The flavors in all the dishes is amazing. The minted pork, garlic bread and the lobster special are a must!! Thanks Ian and Paula!

Outstanding Caribbean tapas food cooked to order by Paula who is an amazing chef using ingredients from her garden to create daily specials, this is a restaurant not to be missed. Paula and Ian are great hosts. One of the best restaurants on Tobago.

Booked last friday, and despite a useless taxi driver who couldn't find it, we got there to be welcomed by Ian. Really nice guy who was under the weather with a UK sourced dose of manflu. The cooking is done by his wife Paula, superbly, but the gem is Ivana, the daughter. No not that one, but she's dining out... More

Such a memorable dinner on a rustically decorated patio with lighted greenery, Paula and Ian served us tapas with a Caribbean twist. My favourite was the Minty Pork and Garlic Bread. With such warm hospitality, (not crowded at all) ambience and great tasting food .......Salsa kitchen is a must visit in Tobago!!!

It turned out that my boyfriend and I were the only people booked into the restaurant the night we came, but we were very welcomed nonetheless! The decor is beautiful with loads of fairy lights everywhere, and the food was absolutely delicious, cooked with soul. Iain and Paula joined us after dinner for drinks, which was lovely and really gave... More

We saw the reviews on TripAdvisor and thought we must try it. Wow....... from the minute we arrived at this quaint place to the time we left was a great experience. A very simple place, but clean and with amazing food and owners. Iain & Paula treated us like guests into their home. They recommended what they thought would be... More

Visited here with a group of friends. Loved the ambience and personalized touch - from the decor, to the food, to the service. Each dish was prepared to perfection, with an unexpected twist in flavour. Especially loved the garlic bread, lamb and pork. Will definitely return.

Once upon a time, a most charming couple called Ian and Paula decided that Tobago's array of ethnic food was missing something. Tapas! A little gem of a restaurant, small in size and plates but big in taste! Somewhere in a Scarborough neighbourhood hidden away from it all, Salsa Kitchen takes you back to Spain but injects some Caribbean flavour... More
