Pleasant lunch, soup was lovely as was the main course but the ice cream was a bit of a let down. This restaurant can get quite full and with no air conditioning and limited fans it's quite hot and sweaty and flies are a pain. Only one toilet for both men and women so be prepared to queue.

Had a beautiful gourmet lunch with our tour group. We had soft sweet tasting bread with a local pate or dip to start, followed by a seafood soup which was delicious. The main event was the lobster which was fantasic. My husbands was huge. It was cooked very well and presented beautifully. It was washed down with a couple of... More

This was a pleasant lunch stop with lobster as part of the set meal offered to our tour group. The restaurant was full which made life a bit more tricky but nonetheless this was acceptable quality and quantity.

Located right across the Cantero House , this is a very convenient place to have lunch ( and also dinner if you prefer) . Shrimp is exceptionally good. The food is very good, the people are very friendly, the band is nice, the owner is a wonderful lady. Good choice if you are looking for a restaurant in downtown Trinidad.

Very tastefully appointed place with a nice menu. Friendly service. Flies from the outside are a real problem.

Found this restaurant quite by accident. The food was excellent, had lamb slow cooked, fell off the bone. This was their special of the day. The overall cost of a meal for 2 plus drinks was some of the cheapest we had found in Trinidad especially based on the quality. Service was also very good.

I ran into this restaurant while looking for some place to have lunch, and I did not regret of my choice. I found it to be a cozy tiny restaurant with a nice roof upstairs to enjoy the great Cuban weather. The place is run by a lovely couple, the husband being from Spain and the wife from Cuba. I...

Oh my god, this place makes great sandwiches. We enjoyed shrimp, chicken and cheese sandwiches in the back courtyard of this restaurant. The cheese was absolutely one of the best cheese sandwiches we ate during our two weeks in cuba. As is to be expected, they include cabbage and tomato, but the bread is fresh and the main ingredients are... More

On arrival we were taken to a lovely roof top restaurant where a band was already in full swing. The music was what we had hoped for and the atmosphere was truly Cuban. The friendly staff soon brought our obligatory Mojito’s. The food was great and, in particular, the lobster which was cooked to perfection. For anyone concerned about the... More

It's here that i had the best lobster in Cuba, it had a lovely texture (not rubbery at all) and flavourful. The staff was friendly and it has a nice relaxing patio upstairs The only downside was a lack of music
