There was plenty to choose from at this buffet style lunch: including battered fish and grilled fish, and delicious black beans. I don't eat meat, so this was ideal, a friend even had the idea of using the vegetable soup as a sauce for the usually bland white fish, and it worked. There was also a salad bar and delicious pastries and ice cream for afters.

We had got this restaurant recommended by a friend but felt utterly disappointed. The place gets extremely busy during lunch hours when bus loads of tourists on a day trip to Trinidad need a quick fix, but it sits pretty desolate during the evenings despite its excellent central location. We were disgusted by the careless way the heaps of food were arranged on the buffet tables, and the flies which held a feast undisturbed.
Best to be avoided.

I will say this in my other Cuban reviews - but TAKE NOTE.... If you want to eat excellent food in Cuba,go to the Paladares (private homes - usually named after the owner). The government-run restaurants like this one are limited in what they are allowed to serve and at what price, so are only ever average.

This restaurant, however, was one of the better government restaurants we visited, with an extensive lunch buffet offering fresh salad, a range of meat and fish dishes, and even icecream for dessert.

We were a group of 7 and all ate huge plates of food, which showed there was a good selection for all to find something they liked. That said, it could not be described as 'very good', hence my average rating,

We stopped in here for lunch. Undoubtedly it would be great for dinner, too. One of those places where we took photos of our dishes before diving into them. Several authentic classic Cuban cuisine dishes. Everything pronounced excellent by all in our party.

Just the staff is enough to feel fine in this plaace. The food is really under average. The musicians are excellent. Palmares shoud pay more attention to this and other locations in the hoistorical downtown.
