“Best meal during our 6 week stay in Cuba”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

This is a gold mine - not a hidden one for, unless you make a reservation a night or two before hand, you are unlikely to get in without a several hour wait. The portions are huge and the tapas are really special (don't miss the seafood cream dish and the meatballs - yes, the meatballs!!). The shishkebab is also a treat. Couple the amazing food with friendly service and lively music and one has a real winner

“Amazing Find”
Reviewed February 13, 2014

We spent three nights in Trinidad and every dining experience was a treat. La Bojita was recommended by a French couple and this restaurant topped them all for exceptional food, great music and interesting decor. The theme is Cuba's early history.. mixing corsair and slave trade curios. The place is a favourite with the locals. If you are in Trinidad for a few days don't miss it.

“The best meal we had in Cuba”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

Cannot recommend this place highly enough. The service was friendly and fast and the food was delicious. So delicious in fact, we ended up here every day of our three day trip in Trinidad! The tamales and vegetable fritters were our favourite things on the menu. Our drinks were also fantastic and one of the afternoons we were there we got to listen to live music. Love the relaxed atmosphere.
