So this is a good restaurant, and lies outside the main center of Trinidad so prices are lower for the quality you are getting. A lovely young singer entertained us and gradually more diners joined us (it was an odd time of day).

This restaurant was recommended to us through our Lonely Planet book which described this place as a cheaper alternative to other restaurants in Trinidad, without a loss in quality. How wrong they were... We arrived at Guitarra Mia to find a queue of tourists outside who were probably also recommended this place by our guide book. We waited half an... More

The menu is very large, a bit expensive but worths it. Very kind hosts : waiters are very nice and a singer with a gentle voice ! A starter (or more!) is always offered by the house Present at the end of the dinner (i won't spoiler, you must try it to discover it!) ;) I had an excellent paella... More

My husband and I went to Guitarra Mia with a group of 28 on a cultural exchange tour in late February 2017. Cuban food tends to be generic (pork, chicken, rice, beans, and some veg.) Main issue in Cuban restaurants dealing with the same limited options is overcooking the entrees, but Guitarra Mia had better than average chefs. The musicians... More

Artistic plating, delicious food and excellent service. The set menu has several interesting options and we were hard pressed to work our way through all the courses. Music is lovely and unobtrusive: talented singer and fine guitar. Make sure you have a reservation.

Arrived without a booking on Valentine's day and the restaurant was full. (Valentine's day is big in Cuba!) We then were waiting outside deciding where to go and the waiter came out to say they had a small table in the window so we went for it. Good food and great service even though it was very busy.

This restaurant came recommended by the people at our airbnb. We now make a recommendation here. The restaurant is on the south end of the village scene in Trinidad just on the opposite street east of restaurant row on Maceo. So it is little less hectic and more serene down at this end. Even so, the place does begin to... More

This is one of the best meals we had in Cuba. We came here on Christmas Eve without a reservation and got in. However, we tried again a few days later and couldn't get in, so I'd get a reservation. It's a little more out of the busy historic area, but only a few minutes walk away. There was a... More
