“Magnificent interior, food less then average”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

Although the interior, which consists of wonderful antiques, might indicate opposite, the truth is that the quality of our dishes was less than average. Wine was so-so and the food absolutely without any spirit. After asking for something special, i was given langosta, which was totaly disaster, most probably from mikrowave, for more then 20 CUC. Save your money and taste and try paladar Estella right across the street. They don´t have live music (La Nueva Era does), but you will enjoy spectacular food on the pictoresque courtyard of Estella´s house.

“Excellent Restaurant in Trinidad”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2012

This is the best restaurant in the UNESCO-recognized World Heritage City of Trinidad (note that Sancti Spiritus is the province in which Trinidad is located not the city where this restaurant is to be found). Its a paladar, a family run restaurant - but much larger and more elegant than the paladares of the 1990s and early 2000s. The owner is a member of pioneering tobacco industry family in Trinidad and on the restaurant walls are family photos and images of Trinidad's history. The quality of the food (sea food, pork, , lamb and other meats) was excellent. There is also a good selection of bottled wine from Chile, Spain and Argentina. The owner is friendly and the service was efficient. Its a 4 minute walk to the centre of Trinidad and after a meal at this restaurant you're only 8 minutes walk away from the Casa de la Trova musical cafe along with several other Cuban music venues.
