Tucked away in a back street, this restaurant has very pleasant secluded outside dining. Service is good and the food is fine - a little variation on the standard you get everywhere in Cuba. Prices are high and you need to make a reservation to guarantee a table. A good experience, but in some ways it is a victim of... More

Delightful lunch in an idyllic back courtyard. My wife's camarones were the largest and most succulent we were served anywhere in Cuba; highly recommended. A highly-skilled classical guitarist, just completing her university music studies, perched nearby for over an hour and provided a pitch-perfect soundtrack for our meal.

Very pretty setting. Food was decent but staff were not particularly attentive and it was overpriced (30CUC for two main dishes and no drinks). It is worth passing this restaurant though just to ask to meet up with a waiter Giovanni who is a very helpful local tour guide who speaks many languages well.

Clearly La Cieba has a good reputation because at three street corners on our way there we had jinteros offering 'reservation restaurant La Cieba'. As well as not needing a 'fren' to guide us there we had already booked. Located a couple of blocks from Plaza Mayor you go through the house to multiple terraces behind which form the restaurant....

Upstairs area was very busy with a large group so we were downstairs where the open kitchen and bar are. Made fr a very entertaining meal as staff seem to have fun together, and was interesting to see what was happening in the kitchen. The chefs seemed to rotate, probably because the barbeque bit was too hot to work at... More

We sat downstairs at a busy time of day. It was interesting to watch the food being cooked but the meal itself was only mediocre and we felt that there were better options elsewhere in town.

Amazing restaurant built around a huge Ceiba tree. The setting here is a must see but need reservation. Food is very excellent. Try the lobster!

I'd qualify every review in Cuba with - food is limited partly because of the sanctions imposed on Cuba which has a knock on effect with drinks and the preparation of dishes. Like many restaurants La Ceiba trys its best. The food suffers from a lack of spice and seasoning and very little food is fresh. We have eaten in... More

We visited La Ceiba on our first night in Trinidad. Not only was in the Lonely Planet, we'd also had it recommended to us by my brother-in-law. Disappointingly, it was nothing special. The setting is beautiful, but in the evenings on the terrace it is very dark – to the extent that we couldn't really see what we were eating.... More
