We ate here at least 4 times during our 4 days in Trinidad. We stopped by for lunch on the first day but hubby wasn't hungry. I had the garlic shrimp. They make a great mojito for 2 CUC. Their garlic shrimp dish reminded me of a similar dish made at Casa del Abuelo in Madrid and served in a... More

One of the best value for money eateries and food is flavourful and prices are on the lower end. Much better than the ones located in the centre

I ate hear several times and had food from pizza to ropa vieja. Good food, good service, pleasant place to eat. I would return to it if I am in Trinidad.

We had dinner there twice on our trip, and it was one of the best restaurants we visited. Food is excellent despite the rather cheap prices. What a nice surprise! Mojitos are great as well. I would recommend this place to pretty much anyone from budget to lower high end traveller since it's hard to find better food even for... More

Value for money food, good service, yummy food with very generous portions. Loved it and went back a second time. Was not disappointed! Especially after trying La Bodijo (which was absolutely the worst ever experience) we went back to give the waiter a big hug.

We discovered this place at random. We were staying at the El Guayito Casa (recommended by a German couple we met in Varadero at the Casa of Marlen y Javier=both very good addresses). The first evening we ate at a tourist restaurant selling cheap food at a ridiculous European price level. We were surprised when we got the bill because... More

This little restaurant isn't near the main square, but it's cheaper, the service is fast and efficient and most importantly the food is very good. The mojitos are heavy on the rum too!

Sometimes it pays to follow your nose. We were strolling around Trinidad one evening and the smell of this place drew us in. We asked to look at the menu, liked what we saw and told the bartender that we will come back the next day because we already ate dinner that evening. We are sure glad we did. This... More
