The best price on lobster dinner can be found here. The lobster was excellent. We also ordered a spaghetti dinner with chicken that was mouth watering. They brought rolls before the meal with their own spread...holy smokes it was awesome. Probably one of the best meals we had on our trip!

Its best to book as it gets busy in the evening. we managed to get a table but we arrived quite early, around 18.30. The food was very good, service great and the cost very reasonable. Local duo played live music and they were very good, really added to the atmosphere.

Good service but the food was below average. We waited over 40 mins for our food which was a pizza and the tropical chicken dish. We were not happy about this. The food was disappointing, even the pizza which can never really be a disappointment for me.

We stopped in here mainly to have a drink and get out of the heat. We decided to also have a couple of sandwiches during our visit. The food was decent, but sandwiches aren't a great indication of restaurant quality. The best part of our experience was the service. Our server and the manager were both very friendly and checked...

My impression of Cuban food and hospitality was not reinforced after our visit at this restaurant. From the outset it appeared that most of the dishes in the menu were not available when we came to order on the night we went. The waitress had an attitude when we struggled to find what to eat after discovering our preferred options... More

We had fresh bread and amazing dip, sensationally cooked lobster, fresh salad, excellent mojito (tasty and strong!) all for 10CUC!!!! The BEST value in Cuba. We were so happy we came here that we came back again, and we would have come back a third time except it was Mother's Day and they were closed. Super friendly and kind staff,... More

This restaurant is walking distance from where we were staying. It has a very attractive interior and I finally had ropa vieja as my main dish and my wife had the pork stew. It was quite good. We enjoyed dining here and would definitely recommend it. Good service and atmosphere. I would return here if I came back to Trinidad.... More

Just walking past, had a look at the menu and it appeared to have slightly different choices from most of the other restaurants. The food was different someone had tried a little harder. The names of some of the dishes may not have been inspiring "tropical chicken" but it tasted good. Well done for doing something different.

My husband and I enjoyed dinner here 2 nights in a row! Our 2 "delightful" female servers spoke English well which was very helpful, given our limited Spanish. They had remembered us and our preferences from one night to the next. The fish and lobster were excellent! The pork was mediocre. The buns served prior to the meal were more... More

Stumbled across this restaurant during a walk round town so decided to visit in the evening. The staff were superb, so friendly and welcoming. Food excellent. I had the local catch which had been recommended and was not at all disappointed. My partner also had an excellent meal. Free Cuba libra was a bonus!!
