A beautiful open court yard restaurant in the quaint town of Trinidad near the main square.
Cuban food tends not to be the best but here at Esquerra the dish were delicious. Fresh produce freshly cook. My partner had the lobster as it is very reasonable in Cuba compare to the UK. The staff are extremely helpful with impeccable English and their cocktail menu was to dye for!
We ate there a few times including lunch which was the tastiest burger I have ever had. There is always a band playing that set the ambiance. Thank you for the memories. Xx

We were in april in Trinidad, it started raining terrible and we went in this marvelous great place. We were very Lucky it was raining so hard because we had a great experience with the wonderful cocktails they prepared. the father and son were real professional cocktailmakers and there was also a very sympatic band playing. We really can recommand this great place and next time we also want to eat there but it was our last evening and we were eating already, so we only drunk fantastic cocktails and enjoyed the stay with the nice music;

Great lobster dinner, reasonable prices, and Xavier and his crew are charming hosts. A location in the heart of the old historic tow, right next to the church, at the foot of the stairs coming down from the Case de Musica. Highly recommended.

We went to this restaurant quite a few times during our stay in Trinidad. Very friendly people, very good food - and the very best music. Thank you for all the nice evenings!

This restaurant was recommended to us by a casa owner in Trinidad on our Jan 2013 trip to Cuba.

The menu included all the usual Cuban items (rice and beans, meat, fish, seafood) but also included some soups. Prices are pretty standard (8-12 CUC). Meals come with bread + butter and a salad and, as we discovered to be the norm in Cuban paladars, come in very generous servings. We asked if we could split one meal between us and they were happy to accommodate our request. The food arrived relatively quickly and was hot and delicious (we ordered the chicken).

The restaurant has a small bar where cocktails are made fresh and the night we were there they had great live music playing from a group of two men and two women.

Service was efficient and friendly, and you can see the kitchen from the dining area (it looked nice and clean).

There is also a nice gift shop which is part of the same building.
