The atmosphere here is phenomenal. The service is fantastic but the food was so disappointing for Hilton!
Sushi was bland, we got some burnt salmon skin on one roll. Appetizers were hit and miss. Ceviche had overwhelming rind taste. Salmon cake lacked salt. One sushi roll had way too much Sriracha sauce and I love spicy food. Drinks were nice bu prices are quite high.
You are definitely paying for the view.

New and exciting Lounge and Wine Bar, Luce offers the ultimate experience in lounge, a place that can lure you away from the everyday life into a tantalizingly polished and detailed space, where ambiance , music, together with warm service , sushi, wines and cocktails can take you to a place of absolute bliss...if only for a few hours.. There is much more about Luce to fire the imagination.

The best thing of this place is the relax and the beautiful view that you can enjoy if you have a seat on the terrace outside and the temperature is cool. The quality of the sushi is also a plus.

On the other side, our orders take an impressive long time to arrive at our table and we were among the few attendees of the restaurant at the moment. The service must be tuned as well. My colleague asked for nigiri without wasabi inside. When he discovered that drops of wasabi were under the salmon he discussed the thing with the supervisor and the only thing he managed to get was a second plate with two nigiri... that he had to pay at the end of the dinner!!

Eating at LUCE is not cheap but I discovered that it's common for eating sushi in Port of Spain

My husband and I enjoyed the sushi at Luce. We had the Chef's special of the night which included 2 rolls (Luce California and Philadelphia)and other items plus the Flamingo Roll. The Chef's platter was good value for the price and my husband really enjoyed the flamingo roll which he cannot stop talking about. We didn't have dessert this time.
We arrived at 7:30 pm on a Saturday and it had a few diners but not crowded which lent to the lovely ambience. The setting is contemporary and funky with cool decor and lighting. The view of the savannah from Hilton also definitely does not hurt.

I had the pleasure of having Sushi at the Luce Restaurant, Trinidad Hilton and what a surprise. The Sushi was fresh and extremely delicious. The service staff were smiling and professional and the owner very entertaining and interactive. The menu is limited, however I learnt that the restaurant is only a few months open. Although just a few items on the menu the rolls we tasted were amazing. The restaurant has a modern lounge zen-like vibe, which I totally enjoyed.
