You have to make a reservation before you would like to go there. The service was good and so was the food! I really recommend it.

Very friendly but very busy - get there early or expect a long wait. Very good food but served in a typical Cuban way - ie includes starter (uninspiring salad) and always comes w rice. Food quality good though, imaginative, and better choice than many restaurants in Cuba. Suffers from own success in terms of staff being overly busy.

A group of us from across Canada met up here at the Cubita on a strong recommendation from our good friend Yvan. Our server was over the top throughout our dining experience and offered patient assistance as we picked and chose shots from the amazing stocked bar. Is it just me…or does everyone find the Cuban rum superior?

You can't make a reservation but if you are not starving you can wait drinking some good cocktail made by Cubita's bar! It is worthy! Good food, big choice for Cuba, fresh food! Nice live music during dinner and good service complete the experience! Try it!

Long wait. Seem to be understaffed - one poor guy was running around for everyone. Wish the band would help serve (or at least keep playing). Prices fairly expensive. Food was really nice though - entree and veg plate included for free. Abrahams lamb looked delicious. My smashed down pork chop or my girls chicken smothered in cheese were no... More

Mediterranean atmosphere in this great palandar in the historic centre of Trinidad. The food is classic cuban cuisine but at the same time modern and a bit more ambitious you would find it in most of the other places. When we where there there was a young trio playing some music (nice, not to intrusive with the tip). Good service,... More

The food here was good but the service was not great. The waiter carried out starters for many tables in one go and basically fired mine at me. Drinks were slow in coming. When I went to the bathroom I came back and my table was given away. I had not finished, I had not settled the bill. The barman... More

It's not much from the outside but when you step inside you will love the decor . The food was delicious and the price was great for the amount of food you got Bring a sharpie as you can write down your name on one of the wall from the restaurant

The food was nice; the price was acceptable. The place has A/C; which was definitely a plus for us. They had a trio playing and they were really good. The service was very nice. The bathroom was newly remodeled; and it was very clean; with toilet paper! and soap! (a luxury in Cuba). I recommend the place.

Seafood paella was loaded with lobster. The free amuse-bouche was tasty, and the service very attentive. FAR better than the food at the Redaccion.
