I came here for dinner and after having waited for 30 min. for the menu I walked around the restaurant in order to find a menu card or a waiter. After a little while I spotted a couple of waiters standing together and talking and it was the musican that noticed me and made the waitres aware of me. I... More

You can skip this one. There is absolutely nothing to recommend it except the beautiful colonial building its housed in. For a really good meal, try San Jose just a few doors down.

Food was very plain, but the service was good in Cuban terms, and the bill was fair (rarity in Cuba that they don't try to add anything extra). Other tourists we saw were mad about the bill though. The interior of the restaurant is very pretty, colonial style, but except for that, nothing exceptional.

We went there because it was recommanded from our tourist guide and our tour operator. HORROR! Because of the good critics we took meat there. DISGUSTING!! DISGUSTING! We couldn't eat it! The meat was old, taste of old, HARD, ROTTEN, STINKING! Was it a cow? 1 point for the well cooked rice! Ahah! YOU HAVE BETTER TO CLOSE YOUR RESTAURANT!

This place is not worth a visit. For some reason, someone had recommended this place for me so we went there the only night we were in Trinidad. The place looks really nice from the outside so we were convinced our recommendation was sure-footed. However, nothing about the rest of our experience was good. At first, we had to wait... More

That night in Trinidad it was raining… we arrived to that place and were invited to seat in the main restaurant hall, the place was packed and we asked the waiter if we could be seated outside in the bar location, immediately they prepared the place, all was done with a nice welcoming smile and efficiency. We ordered Lobster tail... More

As a reprieve from walking around all morning, we spotted the nicely appointed Restaurante Trinidad Colonial. The menu posted by the menu looked interesting. It was very tasty. I had the melted pork - sautéed pork with melted cheese with the sugar/butter potatoes (yummy). My husband had grilled shrimp. Both meals were tasty. The service was slower than we are... More

After a week or so in Trinidad (or anywhere else in Cuba) you may find yourself in a state of rice-and-black-beans-traumatization, having wet dreams of beef and potatoes. Your dreams can be fulfilled in this place at reasonable prices, though you should not expect quality like that of France or Italy. Also, the service is a bit sloppy and ignorant.
