The Rintintin had a large variety of tasty drinks and food that was flavorful and fresh. There is live music every night and the view from the rooftop at sunset cannot be beat. The waitstaff was attentive and the owner was a nice hardworking woman that helped us coordinate our stay in Trinidad and our journey onto Santa Clara.

Maybe I caught them on a bad day, but I cannot agree with all of the positive reviews. Four of us ate lunch here, and none of us was impressed. My shrimp had the metallic taste of seafood that is a day past its prime, and was swimming in a watery, tepid sauce.

I discovered this place during my last trip to Trinidad (beautiful city). It is not a fancy place with too elaborated food, but has an amaizing view and live music. The food is good, I tested an excelent dish based on shrimp, lobster and fish. If you want to spend a very afternoon, view the suncet with cuban music as... More

A complimentary drink as a welcome starts a wonderful dinner with rooftop views and a band that compliments the mood.

I will say it a million times...Trinidad is the best. El Rin Tin Tin was quite possibly our favorite spot in all of Cuba. We arrived a little over an hour before sunset to an empty terrace and were serenaded by the live band and treated to cocktails and shrimp before more people started filling up the place. The food...

We spent an afternoon exploring this colonial town and made every effort to go into places where were invited into but this one was a welcome surprise. From the ground floor side entry to this restaurant -bar, we walked up a spiral staircase to breathtaking views of the town of Trinidad. We sat down in an outdoor patio setting perched... More

Wonderful view from the fabulous terrace, where you can see the whole Trinidad from above, to go at sunset. Very good food with typical dishes. Funny live music.

We stopped by to get a cocktail after a tour and ended up meeting 2 other Americans, an attorney from Flordia and her male friend. The drinks were good and the view is also nice.

Small and cozy bar at the top. Wonderful view over Trinidad and sunsets. Very good drinks and service so we kept coming back. Didn't eat a lot- a bit overpriced maybe, but the Ropa Vieja was good. Bought a CD from the great band Los Parranderos- however nothing is recorded on the CD :(
