Cannot recommend highly enough! Very unassuming from the outside, but service was friendly and attentive, and some of the best food we had during our two week visit. Menu very simple and traditional Cuban, just cooked really well. I had a delicious lamb dish, and my boyfriend loved their lobster. Very relaxed atmosphere, even though we went quite late in...

This was another recommendation from our Casa owners and again it didn’t disappoint. Cocktails were excellent and the seafood paella, while not quite the real thing, was a welcome change to lobster or Ropa Viega. Again the restaurant interior was top notch however the service was a bit slow, especially following our main course; although after 3 days in Trinidad... More

The decor is an extensive collection of hardware from colonial buildings that have either been remodeled or torn down. Every type of hand wrought hinge and nail can be seen on the walls. I had the fish for lunch which I enjoyed very much.

Was commended the visit and not disappointed. Easy to find in Trinidad, groovy little joint and good menu (somewhat tiring of the jamon and queso sambos) so made a welcome change. If you're really good, you can even write your name on the wall. Staff accommodating and kind.

Treat yourself to this absolutely divine restaurant with great character and atmosphere. Perfect for seafood eaters, highly suggest the lobster & shrimp skewer. Extensive cocktail menu. Service is better than most places in Trinidad.

Fantastic food and great service. This place is definitely worth the wait even if there's a queue. Unfortunately the vegetarian food was dull and bland but they do let you write your name on the wall - something for Trinidad to remember you by.

We visited this restaurant as it was just down the street from our casa particular. The décor and ambiance is very nice. When we were there, there was live music - very pleasant. I had the fish, lobster ring, and 2 shrimp combo, my husband had the ropa viega. Both were good. The lobster was overcooked, which seems to be... More
