I cannot recommend this restaurant more highly. The food is absolutely delicious. I ate here twice and had the garlic fish and the brochetas with lobster, prawn and vegetables. Both were outstanding with very generous portions. You also get delicious free bread toasted with tomatoes, garlic and chilli. Yum. Oh, and it's cheap too, around 4cuc for a huge plate... More

We were in Trinidad for 4 nights and only came across this place on the third evening as we took a walk after we had eaten. As such we only had the opportunity to eat here on our last night which was a real shame as the place is excellent. The restaurant is a little way out of the town... More

We found this place thanks to TripAdvisor as it is a bit outside the main tourist streets of Trinidad. After eating there twice I have to say that it is worth looking for. The service is good and the food is well tasting and the prices are absolutely fair. The restaurant has a houseband consisting of two Cuban girls with... More

I HIGHLY recommend dining here while visiting Trinidad. It's difficult to find decent food in Cuba that's authentic and not over-run by tourists however this restaurant served the best meal while visiting Cuba (Havana and Trinidad). It's a small, quaint spot with great service, amazing food (ropa vieja), live music (perhaps depending on the night) and tasty drinks. Best of... More

We were very disappointed with the food in Trinidad, so we were very happy to find this place on our last day in the city. The food was very good, especially the ropa vieja and the schrimps!

Food is really good and very cheap, especially during the happy hours (from 11am to 5pm). We paid for a pizza 2,30 CUC, which is around 2,30€ and it was delicious. You can also choose between fishes, lobster, hamburgers etc. We recommend this place to all of you!

We went here a couple of times during our stay in Trinidad and both times the food was good and the value was excellent. The service is good and friendly and the ambiance homely. Recommended.
