The best roti i have ever had in my entire life, food is tasty and very consistent with the taste and flavors....... you can eat there everyday and the food is always delicious. recommend this restaurant 100%.
Favorite Dish: This restaurant is known for the best roti in town, and it's the best roti you will ever have on the island.
Good position on beach but no menu with prices which if one wants to be charitable could explain why Vera's prices vary not only from day to day but also from customer to customer. If you are new to rotis you will probably enjoy them here, but if you have experienced better as for example as served by the Pancake House you will see how stodgy they are.
If you are really hungry a handy tip is to ask a local to buy for you.... marked price difference. (Yes I visit Castara regularly).
Hard to compare prices given they vary however 100$TT, paid by friends 2 years ago, for a couple of small pieces of chicken and handful of chips was definitely more expensive than average.
We came back to Castara for the second time. Our favourite place to eat was closed (I think it was monday) so we went to the only one open, which was Cascerole. We was waiting about an hour for the food, because fishermans just brought a fresh fish straight from the sea.
We was hungry and I though I would be very angry if the food is not tasty. Unfortunately the disappointment was huge. Food looked bad, little spoon of rice, nasty macaroni pie and mushy red kidney beans with no taste. Fish was hard (barracuda if beliving the cook lady) and served without any care for customer's stomach. Very bad expierence.
When it came to paying the bill, the lady started to look up in a notebook, checking... and called the price (for 2) of TT$146! Double price for foreigners... I know that (especially that people sitting next to us, ordering exactly the same paid TT$70) but I would not complain if the food was good, tasty and filling the stomach. It wasn't. That's why I cannot recomment this place at all.
D Lime is a local bar which is currently the most popular place in the small fishing village of castara.
At first we didnt know what to expect as there are lots of locals 'hanging around' outisde, and if youre not of carribean origin yourself you will stand out as being an obvious tourist. However, the place couldnt have been friendlier. The people of castara embrace the relatively few tourists they meet and locals were coming to our table to 'lime' with us (talking/hanging out).
We were surprised to find we could help ourselves to drinks from the bars fridge, and pay at the end of the evening, with the barman having miraculously kept track of everything we'd taken.
This bar is small but has a great friendly atmosphere and tyhe chance to meet other tourists and local residents of castara so dont be shy! Prices were about 7TT (70p UK) for a bottle of Carib lager, or you could even buy bottles of spirits to take to your table and spend the evening drinking! (about 25TT / £2.50 per quarter bottle of black label trinidad rum).
Dress Code: Anything you want!
