We have been here for a short snack in the middle of the day. The restaurant has a modern atmosphere and attracts many tourists. The food was good while prices are fair, the service was not to complain about.

This is a great place right in the centre of the cobbled historic town. The food was tapas style. The setting is bench seats , rustic wooden tabletops and plentiful food being passed around by busy young , very friendly staff. Loved it!

The food, the ambiente, the music, everything is great here! Wide variety of dishes, well prepared. Probably the best restaurant in town and one of the best that I have been during my Cuba travel. Try and share the tapas within a group. Restaurant is so popular that long queues are common. Avoid that by arriving way before 6 pm.

Delightful meal with quick service compared to most of Cuba. We especially enjoyed the band Nuevo and beautiful songstress Lucimila Rodriguez del Rey.

Went to this restaurant by mistake as it was open and there was live music. Then came back 2 more times. Its hard to find good food in Cuba. sometimes the food isnt cooked well, the portions are small, the variety is limited and the hygiene may not be great. This restaurant is different in all this areas. The music... More

This became our local joint during our time in Trinidad. Food is excellent, reasonably priced and very generous portions. Cheese balls are amazing.

This was the only place that I stood in line for to get a table. We noticed that the queue for this place was really long on our first night in Trinidad and returned the next evening. By 7pm the queue had already started. The food was really good and worth the wait. I had a cheese burger with chips,... More

We were there before the lunch rush and could interact with the staff who were very warm and friendly. We talked a bit about the collection of slave items that were both interesting and disturbing. This is a popular spot for tours so it got busy really quickly, but the food and service were both good.

I had read good reviews online about this restaurant and so wanted to try it out. We ordered a few tapas style plates to share including sweetcorn fritters and plantain which were amazing. All the food was delicious and the service was quick. The only slightly bad point was that there were a lot of flies which were annoying! Overall... More

We went to La Botija as every blog and guide book says it is a must. We arrived early and had drinks and some tapas. Everything was a little expensive and a bit skimpy. The atmosphere was cutsy, the tables uncomfortable, but the servers were very nice and efficient. A music combo, drums, guitar, and a singer, spent 45 minutes... More
