Numero Uno in Trinidad!

Restaurant el Barrie is a pearl amongst the many places to go in Trinidad. Their food is gorgeous and the Mojito is just delightful. The restaurant is an oasis, you can sit quietly and enjoy your meal in the beautiful, cosy, and clean environment. Went there a lot of times, absolutely the best... read more

We were attracted by an unusual atmosphere of the restaurant and by a friendly man, who was chatting with us and calling for a dinner. It is really beautiful inside - the interior is mostly blue combined with gold. We decided to accommodate in the hostal, which is situated in the same building and to try something in the restaurant.... More

The dinner we had in this restaurant was nothing special. We tried a fish, two chicken and a vegetarian dish. It served the purpose of ending our hunger but nothing more. We also had some mojitos which were prepared in a longer procedure but tasted below average compared to the many others we had on cuba. Service was great though.

The earlier reviews are under the name of Bar Restaurant Barrie, but the name is not the only thing to change. We went here for lunch because of the earlier reviews, but be warned this is not Barrie standard, even though the menus still have the Barrie name. Lunch was badly over cooked (even by Cuban standards) and heavily salted... More

This excellent restaurant is highly recommendable. We stayed 4 weeks in Trinidad and celebrated our 25th anniversary at the beautiful colonial style Restaurant Barrie. It was an amazing night, the owners and the staff had created a fantastic frame for our fiesta with flowers, candles and decorations. The food was most delicious and presented beautifully; the chef and his crew... More

Barrié is THE restaurant in Trinidad! In this elegant but at the same time cozy family-run restaurant, the food is absolutely delicious and the service is excellent. As a bonus, you will be entertained by a group of cheerful and highly skilled musicians with an impressive repetoire of traditional Cuban songs. A visit to Barrié is the quintessence of everything...

Hello, last month I visited Trinidad and, after sneacking around, I found this amazing spot in the central region of Cuba. Their service is pretty exquisite and they prepare one-of-a-kind meals. I recommend this place to the ones seeking for real mouth-watering dishes and good and refreshing beverages within a tropical country.

This Casa Particular is the best in Trinidad - Why? Well the rooms are gigantic - like appartmentsize and placed high to have the nice airbreeze at night. Airconditioned though. Travel with you kids to Trinidad this is the place to go - 2-3 times the size of regular Casa Particulares. Staff is cleaning rooms every day, nice and tidy.... More

Very close to the bus terminal is this restaurant. Can enjoy a wide variety of seafood dishes and other typical Cuban.
