It was great to eat some spice after a week in Cuba. They have an interesting selection of Indian inspired food. Not quite Indian but worth a try eg the spicy chickpeas and the chicken. I would have given it a 5 but service totally collapsed once a large tour group of 20 arrived.

We chose the restaurant as it looked busy and popular. Perhaps all those people knew to keep to a drink. We ordered meals, 20 mins later they came back to say they had run out of that, so we ordered different meals. It seems they think we are stupid and can't tell the difference between rabbit and chicken. Or the... More

Difficult to get a table which says a great deal about the quality of the food and ambiance of the place. The music was really wonderful and not intrusive during the meal. Courtyard tables are really set in beautiful gardens and sublime.

A wonderful place for dinner. The decor was beautiful. It felt as if we were in someone's home. The staff was great. It was a beautiful evening.

We went here on a recommendation from a friend who used to live in Cuba and it was one of his favorite places to eat in Trinidad. The decor and ambiance is the best in Trinidad. A great courtyard dining experience!

We had a lovely meal in their nicely decorated patio. They serve delicious/fresh fish and sea food just from down the road and they definitely take their food seriously. They also had good wine which is not very common in Cuba. There was a nice ambiance with a live band.

We enjoyed our first meal here that we had to come back again. Menu extensive and really well priced. Great size meals. We were a party of 4 and all our meals were great. The Restaurant is set in an old home with lots of antiques around, great atmosphere. Bands always playing. Really enjoyed this place and will not disappoint.

This is a lovely restaurant with outdoor seating in a nicely decorated patio. The food was served home style and there was nothing left out. (Not sure if this was because we were in a tour group that the food was served in this fashion.) The menu was served in great abundance so no one left hungry. The dishes served... More

Our host in Trinidad told us about this place. You do not expect the inside of this place when passing in front. It is all decorated in old/colonial style, every detail, you have the meal in the patio while listening to the lovely music group that play there, Trini Sur. We bought their CD and we still listening at it,... More

Our group of 7 have high standards when it comes to food and wine. However, we were managing our expectations as although we were having a fabulous time in Cuba, we had not had great food experiences over the first week of our trip. So we were pleasantly surprised at Sol Y Son. Even though the restaurant was full, the... More

In our palate can taste excellent dishes, but be patient, our cuisine is organic (charcoal), all meals are prepared at the time you order them, even view of the customer. For a pleasant stay we suggest options bar while listening to live music beautiful traditional trinitarian.
