Trinidad Restaurants

Trinidad restaurant

Since Cubans are allowed to start their own small business in 2012 - 2013 the amount of restaurants in Trinidad have been grown tremendously, and lots of them with success.

There are some very nice and creative restaurants around town. Mostly Cuban creole food but also some real good other International restaurants can be found here in Trinidad.

Restaurant Las Begonias

Comidas ligeras
Address: Antonio Maceo y Simón Bolivar, Trinidad, Sancti Spiritus, Cuba

Frommers: Once one of Trinidad's better restaurants, Las Begonias is now not much more than a snack bar, with 10 glass-topped tables on a red-tile floor, open to the street. Still, it's good enough for breakfast or a cheap light lunch. It serves mostly sandwiches (emparedados) and hamburgers, as well as the ubiquitous fried chicken. The house specialty is a sandwich, the "super rumbos" that is ham, cheese, and peppers on thick bread. An Internet cafe is attached.

Taberna La Botija

Settled in a very creative and interesting setting, decorated with historic slavery atributes. They serve tapas, and creole dishes but also pizzas. Good wines and mediums prized. All this with live music, not another "Guantanamera" band but great Cuban jazzy bands.

Address: Amargura 71-B esq. Boca, Trinidad, Cuba


Restaurant Casa Guachinango

You can ride on horses or have a walk in its nice surroundings.

Paladar La Coruña

Address: José Martí 430, Trinidad, Cuba

Frommers: A pleasant private home restaurant with just three tables on the patio just beyond the living room, under a welcome ceiling fan, and a couple more under a bright bulb in the garden, this is, along with dinner-only Estela, the second-best of Trinidad's paladares. It has an oral menu only, but you can already guess what's served: chicken, pork, grilled fish. Meals begin with a salad and veggie plate, and the main course is served with a heaping mound of rice and beans, followed by a small plate of bananas and mango. Tables are very informal, with plasticized tablecloths, wood chairs up front, and iron garden chairs in the garden. One wall of the paladar is decorated with souvenir money from customers around the world.

Reviews Paladar Davimart

Name: Gary Graves
Country: USA
I had dinner there at: Dec 2011
With how many people: 3

This paladar was FANTASTIC !! The best meal I have ever had in Cuba. 4 courses of delicious, international quality food, including dessert, coffee, and a bottle of wine for $20 cuc each (There were 3 of us and the bill was just over $60 cuc). Regular portions (not the normal huge portions to make up for lack of quality), no black beans and rice, great service and the setting is unbelievable. From the street it looks like an abandoned building but you walk back a bit and the gardens and paladar opens up to a tranquil, quiet garden like setting. I am not sure how you decide on who is included in your web site, but I highly recommend looking into this place. There are also 2 nice rooms for rent upstairs and a small bar under construction.

The first paladar in Trinidad.

Enter through an elaborately decorated colonial house, 2 blocks north of the cathedral, into this private restaurant, which has a handful of tables set in an exuberant backyard garden setting, with tons of flowering plants, including red estrella de navidad, and a wall festooned with vines. Portions are nearly as voluminous as the flora. Dishes include roast pork a la cubana, fried chicken, grilled fish, and ham omelet. All are served with moros y cristianos (black beans and rice), salad, fried banana, crackers, and fruit. The owner also has one room for rent

Restaurant El Jigüe

Carne de aves
Address: Rubén Martínez Villena #70, Trinidad, Sancti Spiritus, Cuba
Tel: +53 419 6476

Canalcubano: Located in the Trinidad historical center, Mankind Heritage city, this house prepares a delicious native food, specially its well known specialty "Pollo al JiGüE". Besides there are good prices.

Frommers: Probably the best of Trinidad's state-run restaurants, El Jigüe (hee-gweh) is a brightly lit, nearly formal dining room in a handsome, airy colonial house. It sits on one of the old town's prettiest and tiniest squares, next to a massive shade tree. Just a block from the Plaza Mayor, the restaurant has high-backed chairs, white tablecloths, and prominent chandeliers, which lend it an elegance not often seen in official restaurants in Cuba. Its specialty is pollo El Jigüe, which comes in a clay pot with pasta and cheese and is served with salad and coffee. Other dishes worth checking out are grilled fish, standard chicken, and lobster -- the latter is, if not cheap, a better value here at $18 than at many government-owned restaurants.

Wcities: This eatery specializes in fowl, serving chicken any style including on the grill, roasted and tropical and highlights its Pollo al Jigue (Jigue chicken). Originally a homestead, it was built in the mid-1700s and remodeled in 1810. It retains the beautiful plaster mouldings of the ceilings, bronze lamps and engraved crystal along with the stuccoed Moorish motifs which stand out. Its cultural import is seen on the facade, which exemplifies the use of murals dating from the mid-19th century.

Restaurant El Ranchon

 Restaurant El Ranchon TrinidadLocated in a large open garden covered with pergola's and plants. The owner and his wife are very enthusiastic and driven to do the best he can for his guests. On the menu you will find traditional Cuban cuisine, the portions are HUGE and tasty. If you contact him a day or two on forehand he can prepare you a real Cuban pigroast. Really recommended for people who want to experience real good Cuban food.

Ranchon "Don Fando"

Review: This Paladar was super. It is actually located on the family's farm...all surrounded by banana trees and lots of plants and flowers. We went for a meal, to celebrate the birthday of a friend with the family. Rene, the owner, prepared a long table for us and when we arrived, everything was ready. The food was very good and very nice presented. There was a lady singing on the night, that kept us entertained, as well as a guitar player. We had such a good evening, that we went back again, but this time for lunch, so we could appreciate the place. The paladar is not right in the centre of Trinidad but,it is worth going. There is a car park there, where yo can leave your car.
The staff is very professional and very dedicating to their work.
The kids had a very good time, chasing all the animals!!!
Very nice atmosphere with very good food...what else can you ask for???!!!
We highly recommend it!!!


La Redaccion Restaurant & Bar

 Restaurant Bar La Redaccion | Trinidad | CubaThe food in Cuba can be boring but the produce is delicious, fresh and naturally organic. The restaurant serves Cuban food with a European twist: Lobster, Prawns, Gourmet lamb burgers, Pork Belly, various veggie options (rare in Cuba), Guacamole, Hummus, Soups, Salads and much more. We pride ourselves on sourcing the best produce daily from the local fishermen and farmers.

The traditional colonial building holds all its original charm and remains untouched since the 1800s. In 1911, the first edition of the newspaper “El Liberal” was produced at the house and continued for 30 years. The concept of the restaurant revolves around this theme. We use local newspapers as place mats, the menu is divided by newspaper section and our museum room displays the original typewriters, bureau and furniture of the time.

Music is also at the heart of La Redacción and we have various local bands playing nightly. The restaurant is located on the main street, Calle Maceo, a two minute walk from the central Plaza Mayor. We open daily from 11.30am until late.

One of Trinidad's longstanding paladares, "Sun and Sound" is housed in an art- and furniture-bedecked 19th-century house that could double for an antiques dealer. Out back, on the porch of a very attractive, verdant courtyard, the restaurant features one of the more extensive menus among private restaurants. Choose from soups, spaghetti, a long list of fish (including a breaded filet stuffed with cheese), and grilled and roasted chicken and pork dishes. Check out the cerdo borracho (drunk pork), which is grilled and doused with rum. The patio has mounted ceiling fans, and during the day you should do your level best to sit beneath one, as it can get bloody hot.

Since 2013 you also can stay the night in this lovely colonial paladar. Check out Casa Paladar Sol y Son

Restaurant Trinidad Colonial

Cocina internacional
Address: Maceo #402, Trinidad, Sancti Spiritus, Cuba
Tel: +53 4196473

Canalcubano: Established in a beautiful colonial house and decorated with an antic furniture, it presents a correct native menu with meat, shellfish, and fish. It is the most elegant of all Trinidad.

Frommers: This restaurant is more notable for its setting, in a pretty mauve-colored house set back from the street, with a couple of tables in a sunny courtyard, than its menu. The standard dishes of grilled fish, pork filet, grilled shrimp, and lobster, feature decent-size portions but are a little unexciting, and service can be spectacularly inattentive. A better value are the set menus, which come with rice, vegetables, bread, and dessert.

Wcities: This elegant restaurant is a mid-19th century mansion, which once housed a wealthy Trinitaria (local resident) family of that time. The spacious dining area lies beyond the gate and the manicured garden of decorative plants and autochthonous dwarf palms. Its furniture, tableware and settings are originally from that period and the high ceilings retain the intricate fine plaster moulding. Artwork by the region's artists hangs from the walls and potted tropical flowers abound. This fine restaurant's specialities include the highest quality of shellfish and seafood.


Restaurant Via Reale
