We love prix fixe lunches probably as much as restaurants like offering them.
Most places in Trinidad and Tobago with fixed-priced meals have perfected the culinary calculus, so you’ll usually get a reasonably priced and well-executed lunch quickly. (Also, nearly all the restaurants on this list also offer an a la carte lunch menu.)
