Word is that Trinidad’s SAILS RESTAURANT & PUB is all about the view and the baby back ribs! And, it’s true, this waterfront restaurant serves up finger-licking-good ribs and an expansive view of Chaguaramas Bay.
Situated at the Power Boats facility in Chaguaramas, SAILS has the trappings of a typical boatyard restaurant — a very casual setting and an American-style menu of seafood and steak entrees alongside appetizers/sides like salads, chicken wings, wedge fries and fried cheese sticks.
Take our advice and bypass the fried fare and start with the creamy Callaloo Soup ($32) and great Mussels ($68). Great choices for entrees include the tender, meat-falling-from-the-bone barbecued Baby Back Ribs ($105 for a half-rack) and the King Fish Supreme with garlic butter ($165), both flanked by huge baked potatoes and side salads. Vegetarians can try the Veggie Plate ($62) and we promise that you’ll be too stuffed to even consider dessert.
Update (August 2012) – We checked out the Sunday BBQ night at SAILS RESTAURANT and loved it! Many BBQ ribs, grilled grouper, a very tasty ratatouille, fresh salad and mashed potatoes were consumed and thoroughly enjoyed while we watched the sun set and ‘limers’ returning from down the islands. BBQ Night Menu is here.
