lovely setting

We were recommended this restaurant by the woman whose house we were staying at. We were seated upstairs with a view into the back yard of a very unkempt house. The trees above us were beautiful, the musicians who played were terrific. There was a rich local Cuban family there - they work for... read more

Clearly some people love this place, and others don't. We had a very good lunch, sitting under the tree that gives its name to the restaurant, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.The food was typically Cuban, although perhaps a touch better than average, but the surroundings were definitely above average. It was not crowded when we went, and the service was... More

Highly rated on Lonely Planet and hence thronged. The food was ok but expensive and we had better in Trindad and every other town we visited in Cuba. The setting is fabulous but not sure the queues and the hype are worth it.

We ate here for our last evening in Trinidad, and it was an excellent choice, as recommended by the Lonely Planet guidebook. From the outside, with the door closed, it doesn't look like anything. But when the door is open, La Ceiba is quite large, with tables on multi-levels. We had a 6:30 pm reservations and talked with the doorman... More

I went there during a trip to Cuba and I was impressed by the quality of food, service, atmosphere and the overall experience.... If I go back to Cuba this will be a place where I want to go back for Sure!

This is one to be avoided I feel. We were recommended to try this restaurant and got a 'deal' from an employee on the street but the options were chicken, pork and fish (typical for Cuba). Myself and a friend had the pork, but it tasted a bit odd so we did not eat most of it. Overall a poor... More

After a walk down the hallway of the elegant family home, you arrive at the restaurant at the back of the property. The view of the hills is beautiful in the outdoor setting underneath the magnificent old Ceiba tree which the waiter told me was about 400 years old. Although the prices are bit more than elsewhere, the food was... More

They have many runners on the road who all want to escort you to this restaurant. Its all because of the commission they pay. That commission is reflected in their prices: you pay way too much for what they offer. My advise: do not go there.

This restaurant has incorporated a very old and spectacular ceiba tree as the focal point on its upper terrace. Speculation on the age of the tree varies from 100 to 500 years and its religious connotations date back to the Mayans. In fact, the ceiba tree has a long tradition in history and the African slaves adopted the ceiba tree... More

A lovely restaurant. I recommend sitting on the outdoor terrace under the 100 year old ceiba tree. The food and service was good. I had tasty shrimps in a unusual honey, lemon and rum sauce which came with rice, plantain and a type of potato For appetizer we were served a fruit salad, a regular salad and a vegetable broth...
