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

One of my friends spotted this darling restaurant in a lovely colonial building, while walking around and the 5 of us returned in the evening. There are guitars everywhere decorating the walls, and there was live music, guitar and singer. The menu had lots of genuine Cuban choices and I settled on picadillo, a traditional ground beef dish. It was... More

I just came here to have a drink, a natural orange juice. The waiter came back with a mix of water, sugar and orange powder for 2,5 CUC which is very expensive for Cuba. When I told him that is wasn't a natural orange juice, he said he would come back with a real one. I waited for 10 minutes... More

Guitarra Mia has very good food and service (but they were out of cheesecake). There was a guitarrist there for my early dinner; I thought it was a bit much for me but there was a couple. And he played nueva trova which I requested. Staff was friendly. All-in-all I couldn't ask for more

The lobster tail we had here for lunch was excellent - cooked perfectly and presented beautifully on a black plate with a treble cliff "squiggle" piped onto the plate and a homemade 5" guitar-shaped cracker. The lobster tail was huge and so I used my appetite on it instead of the sides and dessert. The restaurant is decorated with a... More

Guitarra Mia is a few minutes walk south from the main square, which makes it less frenetic that some we saw, but worth booking to secure a table. Service was both efficient and friendly - up to European standards. After ordering we were presented with an amuse bouche of crisp savoury biscuits with a trio of beetroot sauce, chopped tomato...

This restaurant has the most delightful atmosphere with fantastic live music playing throughout our meal. The food took ages to arrive and we noticed the arrival of meals at other tables who were seated after us. The pork, grilled seafood, croquettes and desserts were good but the paella was very disappointing as it was mushy and overly salty.

We had lobster several times during our 2 week visit to Cuba earlier this month - they were everything from acceptable to really nice - so when we arrived at the Guitarra Mia restaurant in Trinidad on by birthday, we were careful to ask our waitress if they were serviing fresh lobster, which she confirmed, and we consequently ordered. It... More
