On a recent trip with my sister we visited La Cubita while in Trinidad. The canchancharra, a traditional drink was delicious and refreshing. The selections on the menu were good and presentation was beautiful. We had the Abraham's Ropa Vieja with lamb and would highly recommend as well the Pumpkin soup. Lovely music. Enjoy!

For CUC10 you get a multi-course meal, with an amuse bouche. Portions are moderate in size. The food is OK, and served fast: they want to turn the table. Cubita has the usual Cuban specialties. This is a serviceable option, but not memorable.

Small restaurant but amazing food. This is a very popular restaurant in Trinidad, there were always queues outside when I walked past. The evening I decided to visit, there were 5 people in front of me waiting to be seated but even then I only waited 10 minutes before being seated inside. The menu is quote extensive and there is...

The décor is very nice, good drinks, wide selection of food and drinks, live music and nice atmosphere, efficient service but all these nice things are good for nothing if the food is nothing to write home about- disappointing.

This small restaurant is a real gem in Trinidad. When we visited, the chefs seemed to enjoy carving beautiful sculptures out of the food, which wasn't a problem. The local music was beautiful and you should write your name on the wall before you leave

My wife and I ate at several good restaurants in Trinidad but this one was the best. The place can be busy and the head waiter appears to do everything however you are in Cuba so no point in rushing the dining experience! Good selection of food at a very reasonable price with some very relaxing live music.

Great choice, good food, great prices under $10, great service. A hidden gem on the island. This is a total different outlook and happy to see the people living and providing for themselves as small business owners...

We had to wait for a table, so consider a reservation. The service was excellent, quick, attentive. Food was wonderful. We had lamb ropa vieja (best version I've had yet) and seafood trio (all fresh and well prepared). Sides were authentic, delicious. Tourist friendly.
