Our group of 19 lunched here and spent nearly 3 delightful hours eating delicious food (the biggest lobster I've ever seen!), drinking the best mojitos and enjoying the live trio of musicians who succeeded in getting all of our group up and dancing! The owner and his wife were the sweetest people ever and the entire staff was incredible. They... More

We stumbled across this place by accident walking the Cobble stoned streets of Trinidad. The decor is just out of this world. The owner Quince will attend to you personally and you get a free sample of Rum. There was also nice music and a bit of dancing. We had a set price menu which was very well priced. The... More

We bumped into this beautiful restaurant wandering the streets of Trinidad and were caught by the extraordinary exquisite interior design - tables served with full set of vintage dishes, hundreds of beautiful glassware combined by shape and colour in different corners of the restaurant, fresh flowers (totally abnormal for Cuba) - and decided to give it a try. The food... More

it's a bit of a girls' place (at least this is what my boyfriend says ;) with loads of "kitsch" that makes you feel as if you were dining in a museum.The food is very acceptable although there is a lot on the menu that is not available (but that's Cuba). The prices are not low but moderate considering you... More

Well located in the historic center of town, entering the first part of the house, you think you are in a Museum dedicated to the conservation of antique tableware, plates and glasses from the 19th century left by pirates. Quite surprising to find so many and so well preserved and beautiful artifacts in Cuba. The little patio inside is a... More

We had a very memorable dinner here while in Trinidad. We heard good things and stopped in to this restaurant/museum. The decor and place settings are really amazing and after a few minutes we realized that we had the entire place to ourselves. Usually, I would go by the rule to expect little if no one is around, but the... More

What a great experience it was! We went for dinner twice at this very special restaurant. Everything was perfect. It was like going back into time with its fine china and cutlery. The owners and staff are very friendly and professional, the food is great and is very reasonably priced. A house band plays Cuban music and you are given... More

Thanks to 1514 Restaurant-Museum we spent some wonderful evenings in the atmosphere of the old days. Everything here is perfect: each table decorated with a special and unique china, friendly but always professional service, delicious meals and all accompanied with a lively Cuban music and dance. Definitely when we're back in Cuba we will visit 1514 again! 1514 and its... More
