Apsara: Trinidad Restaurant Experience: Apsara
This restaurant is an upscale, reservations recommended, Indian restaurant on the east side of Queen's Park Savannah in Port of Spain, Trinidad. We throughly enjoyed our Christmas eve dinner there. We marveled at the authentic Indian decor, which included altars and incense to Hindu gods, dishes and cutlery which the proprietor proudly told us had been imported directly from India ten years prior, and a menu that offered paneer cholle, sabzi punchmela, murgh tikka masala, murgh tandoori, and similar Indian cuisine. As with all restaurants in Trinidad, the final bill includes a (minimum) ten percent service charge in addition to a fifteen percent vat charge. This can make an already pricey meal considerably more expensive. Bring your credit card and before you leave home, contact the customer service number to let them know when and where you are traveling.
Favorite Dish: I ordered the murgh tandoori. It came to the table sizzling on a hot grill, much like the chicken fajitas back home in Texas. It was tasty but not too spicy. Also, there are several selections of soup that we sampled, each better than the other.

Sweet Lime Restaurant: Don't Miss the Fresh Seafood (seriously)!
I had a fantastic time at this restaurant. It was open air and located on a very busy entertainment street where there’s endless people watching and live entertainment. The food was nothing short of fantastic. A blend of Caribbean and international sensibilities (depending on your taste), their culinary skills definitely excel in the seafood area.
There is another location in La Romaine, Trinidad.

Favorite Dish: It's a tie. There was the Yara Bay kingfish, so fresh, that this grilled steak practically flaked every time my knife cut into it. It's seasoned very lightly with some butter a crisp lemon slice and served with veggies and a very stuffed baked potato. There was also the Lobster Taino which had its chunky lobster hit the pan with some yummy lemon butter. I had a bite of it from my friend and spent the evening begging for more. They also have some first rate cutters, a mix of local favourites and popular international things on their extensive menu. The price is reasonable and the atmosphere elegantly casual.

Everywhere else: Where to eat cheaply
There are the usual american food chains (like TFI Friday) where you can go for a decent meal - but it is overpriced.
If you eat at a local place (can't really call them restaurants - or even cafe's come to that) it's a hell of a lot cheaper.
