The atmosphere was great and original. Good service even if a bit slow, but it was full and without reservation we made it to have a table. Good typical Cuban food. Good quality, which is difficult to find in cuba as food is not their specialty :)

The best food I ate in Cuba and friendly staff. I had a great seafood meal with fantastic presentation rivalling European standards. The Indian twist on certain dishes was welcome and I can say it was not too far off the real thing being of Indian origin. The staff were courteous and service was impeccable. Although the restaurant was full,... More

I went to this restaurant with a group of almost 20 and they were very accommodating. The food was wonderful, but the atmosphere was extraordinary! I can not wait to return to Trinadad, Cuba for another visit. We even got to meet the owner whom told us the whole story behind this paladar and many others like it.

Our lunch at Sol Ananda was superb on every level--service, food and ambiance. We were introduced to the canchanchara cocktail and enjoyed it immensely (and the post meal cafe was divine too). I can't speak highly enough of how organized the service was, particularly for our very large party. I ordered pork, which was plated beautifully and tasted great. I... More

We stumbled across this restaurant as we passed by, looked in and saw the beautiful setting. It didn't disappoint, good food, good service, nice music which was low-key and meant you could still talk (not always the case!). Certainly the setting was splendid.

Very pretty and charming inside with an interesting layout. There were several long and small tables occupying every inch in this restaurant. The table cloths were white and crisp; the dishes and glasses sparkling clean. The decor was almost Victorian. Just beautiful. Water was served in small bottles. A welcome drink consisted of fresh fruit juice with chunks of papaya,... More

Slightly strange setting with a bed etc in the dining room (all antique of course) but very good food with efficient and friendly service with as smile. We really enjoyed it. Its not for those on a tight backpacking budget, but neither was it overpriced for what was on offer. Delicious food and definitely different from the usual fare and... More

Sol Ananda was a great surprise after having gotten food poisoning at Guitarra Mia the night before. We walked right into Sol Ananda around 930-10PM and shared a main course fritter dish with pork and South Asian/Caribbean flavors. I was nothing but floored at the spice medley after a few days of typical Cuban food. It was very good. Service... More

Your table can be either in the entrance, the main room, or one of the bedrooms.... Nicely decorated, great service and good food.

Once a private home now a lovingly restored charming restaurant with live music, good food and wine. A real Cuban experience.
