In the a la carte restaurant you can get a nice lobster dinner for 12CUC. It comes with rice and lots of melted butter. For a unique experience, try a lobster dinner in a locals home. Ask someone on the resort you become friends with. They can guide you in the right direction. I don't like to use names on this forum, but I will say the MC of the nightly entertainment is an excellent source of information.

Also if you want to venture out in town , Paladar Sol y Son is probably the most popular paladar in town and you are sure to find lobster there. If you want to splurge and eat in "fine dining" you can always visit the restaurant in Iberostar Grand Trinidad.

Sorry I have to disagree with you ddc but I would not call Sol y Son most popular paladar in Trinidad.

It is certainly the first one opened there many years ago and with a nice setting but….

IMO s per today current trends (I was there last week) the best deal for the freshest and best meal to be found at a private house..

I second the Cubita Restaurant recommendation. We ate there twice, on consecutive days sometime in mid-Sept 2011. The lobster was great, very fresh and tasty. The other foods we ordered were also excellent. It is a wonderful restaurant, with beautiful decor. There is one small part of the wall where travellers and patrons can leave their mark. Waiters here give very good and sincere recommendations too. Love this place!!

There are two outdoor restaurants located along the road that runs between Costasur and the town of La Boca. Both are on the beach and provide a nice view while you eat.
