“The best meal we had in Cuba”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

Cannot recommend this place highly enough. The service was friendly and fast and the food was delicious. So delicious in fact, we ended up here every day of our three day trip in Trinidad! The tamales and vegetable fritters were our favourite things on the menu. Our drinks were also fantastic and one of the afternoons we were there we got to listen to live music. Love the relaxed atmosphere.

“Excellent food, the Live music is the best in Cuba”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

Food is excellent, the service is fast and the waiters attentive with good humour. Is really good place to hang out and meet new people. The live music is on from from 11.00 to 23.00 and is truely awesome the best 10 cuc spent in Cuba for the album from Carlos and his band. Take the kids and they will get handed a Maraca to join in with the band.

“Great tapas and Cuban food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

Came here on our first night in Trinidad as this is the family restaurant of the people's who's Casa we were staying. We ordered mojitos and.sat at the bar while we waited for a table.
The decor of this place is very interesting. There was live music by a young band fronted by a young girl, which was the first time we'd seen a girl singing in a band in Cuba. They were excellent the girl having a hauntingly beautiful voice.
We ordered 7 tapas dishes all served on crushed and bent cristal beer bottles which I loved! Spot on tapas the Tamale type things and the cheese balls being outstanding!

La Bojita is open 24 hours and has a great ambience, we ended up back again for lunch the next day. Try it!
