We were traveling with a group and this was a lunch stop.......it turned out to be one of the better meals we had while in Cuba. The staff goes over board to make you feel welcome, its like dinning in someones home. The the fish in the green sauce was wonderful! There was also live music. It was a very... More

Food was great at Sol Ananda and the service was much better than many other places we went. The restaurant is filled with antique furniture which is quite fun, slight problem was the other diners who spent a lot of time taking photos of it all (many many selfies with the table of wine!!) which detracted from the atmosphere. There... More

What an amazing adress! Restaurant in an ancient palace on the plaza mayor. All the decoration is tasteful with ancient furnitures and painting. We had dinner in the bedroom :) the food is also very good with some vegetarian dishes.

Sol Ananda lives up to its reputation of eating in a lively museum. We sat in the bedroom, bed made and all. Cocktails were delicious, especially the frozen daiquiri. Food was pretty good and interesting, more than just Cuban, a fusion with some Asian touches. Live music very pleasant. Overall a great experience and not too expensive!

A truly fabulous and very old house with antiques. There was a massive wardrobe and a fully made bed in the room we dined in. Hand embroidered linens and fine antique table ware compliment the environs. The menu is ambitious with Indian influences, quite pricey for the area and the results were good, but not great. The service was friendly... More

On a corner site at Plaza Mayor. The best menu and service in town while also providing a 5 piece Cuban band with two very "UGLY" female singers. Extensive menu of 7-8 pages with a very slight Indian flavor to several dishes. Good wine list and overall very reasonable prices. When leaving the restaurant drop into the local bars in... More

It's sort of an Indian place which is overpriced. We ordered a salad, and the portion was ridiculously small.

This place is great! The atmosphere, staff, live music & food! The menu impressed as it wasn't just the standard fare of fish & plantains. Fabulous squash soup, yummy curry & great prices.

There are many restaurants in Trinidad, but this is definitely my number one! Beautifully decorated with antiques and the food is delicious. It's a special place for special occasions (to put a nice dress on and just enjoy the live in a relaxing and elegant atmosphere). Very positive point: There is no terrace (!!). The most tourists don't know, that... More
