Very tasty, beautiful setting

I really enjoyed our visit to La Ceiba. We got a bici-taxi up and were pleased by the beautiful setting. Sit outside if you have the option. The staff were helpful and friendly and the food was very good too. I had honeyed chicken and a mojito. Both were very well prepared.

The most authentic Cuban cuisine can be found in this very nice restaurant. They also have live music. We heard a duo (guitar and bongo) and both musicians sung and were high quality artists. The food in the restaurant was spectacular and cheap. We got an incredible big, fresh lobster tail + arroz moro + tostones (fried plantings) for just... More

Although recommended by our guidebook we should have known better than to come here after no less than three local touts came up to us to recommend this place. The setting is truly spectacular with the giant tree snaking through the terrace and the beautiful backdrop of the mountains in the distance. Unfortunately, this was the only good element of...

As everybody here has said, great outdoor setting. Very romantic and lovely. Food is good, but not fantastic, have had better fish in other restaurants in Trinidad. The service on the evening we where there was slow to the point of waiting 1 hour even to order the food, and afterwards fast to the point of trying to snatch our... More

This restaurant is in a beautiful setting, in the back garden of a house which has a 100 year old cedar tree in the garden. The menu is actually a bit different from the usual meat/fish/rice options that you get in most places, and the food was delicious. Service was good. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Restaurant is at the back of a house. Beautiful location and view. As the name suggests there is a massive tree which adds to the restaurants character. We visited with a group of 7 people. Food was well prepared. I had lobster and we all shared the honeyed chicken (the specialty). Staff were helpful and friendly. Not that it was... More

This restaurant was recommended by our B&B owner for the first night in Trinidad. The Cuban weather, for April, was unusually hot, and the roof top restaurant was lovely and cool as sun set. This is a popular dining spot and well deserved. Waiters were attentive, menu interesting and diverse, dinner delicious.

This is a nice place to eat. The first night we went with the whole group (17 people) and everyone really enjoyed it. The second night we decided to come back and taste some of the dishes that some other people had the first night. We were not dissapointed. The food is just very nice here and a nice view... More

This has to be one of the prettiest places that we have ever had the pleasure of having lunch at! The 100 year old tree is simply gorgeous and this entire place is constructed entirely around it. My husband and I each had a canchánchara for 2.50 CUCs, the local cocktail specialty of this area... www.haveataste.net/trinidads-drink-the-canchanchara/ to begin our leisurely... More

Let's go. The place is beautiful and well decorated. If there no tables available have a drink at the ground floor and watch the chef and his helpers prepare the plates. Have a seat at the terrace and take a look at the tree that's over 100 years old. The stuff is pleasant, speaks good English and is very helpful.... More
