There are lots of places to eat in Trinidad but the best place we found by far, was La Nueva Era. You can eat on several levels, the first floor balcony is especially pretty overlooking a traditional Spanish style courtyard. Live music is played in...More

We were offered a variety of choices and went with the fish fillet and shrimp dishes. The shrimp was abundant but did not agree with me. People raved about the lobster. Every dish came with salad, rice, pumpkin, veggies and flan. There was a live...More

We went to this place for a nice evening meal and were really disappointed by the service and the food. Slow service and small portions.

We were seated outdoors on the terrace for an early dinner on a lovely Trinidad evening on a quiet night, with the local band playing easy listening music. In fact, we did not even enter the restaurant proper. The wait staff did not speak much...More

We stopped in here for lunch when we needed a break from walking around the city. The food was good. I was excited to see vegetarian choices, which can be difficult to get. I would probably try another restaurant if I were back in town,...More
