This restaurant occupies a corner position only a few steps from our hotel, so we booked when we passed in the late afternoon. It's one of the oldest properties in the town and only been open as a restaurant for about 3 years. The setting is great – superb architectural design of the period (circa 1750) with lovely ceilings, roofs... More

Amazing setting. Very adventurous menu but I would stick to the classics (cuban). Nice wine list and we had a very romantic table in the back near the bar which was great.

My daughter and I LOVED it! We went there for dinner and had a really amazing time! The atmosphere is so unique due to the great furniture and decorations (if you do not eat just go there to have a look - we ate next to a colonial bed!). The band who played was really great (singer had a very... More

Great meal and ambience in this house turned restaurant. Nice antique and warm feel with great lighting. The "Cuarteto Isla" music group was awesome, we bought their CD and I play it all the time and wish I could get a second project from them! Loved their version of "Bailando" and "Me hace falta" and their energy!

Our group of 19 US travelers had a fantastic dinner at this downtown Trinidad restaurant. We were introduced to the menu selection by its maitre-d who must be a brother of Placido Domingo, the opera singer. The setting in this hundreds of years' old private restaurant is so beautiful and authentic. The food was first class and so was the... More

Charming atmosphere, excellent food with lots of vegetarian options. It's one of the best meals I had in Cuba and elsewhere, for that matter. Service was good and the music was wonderful. Try and explore all the antique filled rooms, it's quite a lovely restaurant with not a bad seat in the house. It's a very special experience and highly... More

This is a quirky place full of antiques. The staff were really friendly and helpful. There were a lot of people eating here and some were turned away whilst we were eating, so it had a good lively atmosphere. They had a standard menu and an indian menu so it was nice to get a change from the usual cuban... More

Excellent food, good music in the most amazing style. Its a bit like a Spanish antique shop - even down to your cutlery and drinking glasses. Good menu and service - coupled with a reasonable choice of Spanish wine - which is rather unusual in Cuba. Position perfect on the edge of the main Plaza - booking essential.

I'd rank Sol Ananda as the best restaurant experience in a 10-day trip to Cuba. The setting is elegant and inviting. The dinner was amazing. I chose the shrimp with coconut and curry, which was unbelievably good. Others in our group opted for the lobster and the "green fish," and everyone sang praises. The musicians and the antiques and art... More

This is a beautiful Paladar , the chef/owner personally describes that night's menu. Has a passion for food! Dinner was delicious, there were offerings we hadn't seen anywhere else. Presentation was excellent as well. The live music was fabulous, very talented musicians. After dinner the chef returned to see what we thought and to answer questions on how his new... More
