Walking around the plaza mayor we came across a beautiful colonial house with a bedroom on display and exquisitely set tables, that's how we got drawn in to what is possibly the best culinary experience one can have in Cuba The menu is extensive, varied and creative and takes good care of vegetarians The staff incredibly attentive and very well...

Ananda has a very strong Asian cuisine influence. It's set in a an attractive old period house with tables in every room -- even in a bedroom! Don't know if the bed is used or not but it made a very interesting feature! The food was very good -- we shared a starter, had two main dishes, shared a dessert,... More

You definitely need to see this place, my favourite in Trinidad. Restaurant is decorated like in the old times. Food is quite delicious here, we have tried some chicken and sauce of it was great. Also the salads are yummy. Located in the old city center of Trinidad.

Delicious meal, the coconut prawn curry (forget its name) was the pick of our meals in Trinidad. Nice setting,with music later in the evening.

What a great place! Full of antiques, making it possible to dine in a bedroom ;-) Ate our dinner there twice and it was very, very nice on both occasions. Their menu is quite large and imaginative. Had fish dishes each time which were just delicious! Staff were friendly and attentive!

Beautiful restaurant with amazing live music. The food was fresh but just lacked a little flavour. For example the grilled lobster was served with nothing. It could have done with a little garlic butter or something. The salad was not dressed either. Also the food was slightly overpriced. Presentation was great though. We still had a very pleasant evening.

I had a really bad experience in this restaurant. I ordered the fish of the day and I got food poisoned. My friend instead ordered a the fish Sol Ananda and it was ok, but really nothing special: vegetables' side dish are so small that you can barely see them and the white rice was one of the worst we...

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.

Thank Jessica C
