The restaurant is a little bit hidden throughout the streets of Trinidad. However make sure you will find this one! The name La ceiba is named after the big tree, supposed to be 300 years old on the terrace. You have stunning views on the mountains, a romantic, clean and nice terrace. And the food is absolutely fantastic. Hidden gem... More

Very big tree in the back yard gives this place its name. The terrace is great and it's worth to go just for the ambience. The honey chicken we had was good although a bit the meal was a bit more expensive than in other restaurants in Trinidad. But not overpriced. The terrace being full it seemed the waitress had...

If you like sitting under an old tree while eating really bad and really expensive Cuban food then this is the place for you. If you'd prefer good service, good food and a price that goes with the meal than I suggest you go someplace else. This restaurant offers highly overpriced and tasteless meals (served cold, undercooked, microwaved?) and does... More

This restaurant has the most magnificent setting, below the grand Ceiba tree. It is beautifully lit, and really is a world class setting for an evening meal. However it pretty much ends there, with the food basically the same as everywhere else: standard meals of fish, pork, beef, lobster served basically the same. Having said this, it was pretty difficult... More

This restaurant is built around a beautiful and very impressive cieba tree. It is quite surprising to go through a regular looking house from the outside and to discover such a beautiful place inside. However- in my opinion that is not good enough reason to go there since the food was not very good, and prices relatively high.

Ordinary looking terrace type house on a cobbled street. Down stairs to back patio sheltered by enormous Ceiba tree. Comprehensive menu, fresh, nicely cooked food. Assorted drink options. Reasonable prices.

Due to a great review in LP guide, we went here but were very disappointed. The food was average in fact the fish was very over cooked. we got the impression that they have stopped trying now they have a good review in guide book. The service was quite surly and unfriendly. Worst restaurant experience in our two week trip.

Returned to this restaurant again this year to see the new floor built up into the branches of the Cieba tree. The setting is quite romantic with flowers & birds overhead & great music played by a small Cuban band. The food was great & the Piña colads were much better than those in my hotel. Looking forward to returning... More

Set upstairs on the terrace and you will be in a tree fort perched on the limbs of the biggest tree you have ever seen. Good service and food but it is the setting you will remember. The fish was very good. The pork was nothing special.
