Fantastic food and great service. This place is definitely worth the wait even if there's a queue. Unfortunately the vegetarian food was dull and bland but they do let you write your name on the wall - something for Trinidad to remember you by.

We visited this restaurant as it was just down the street from our casa particular. The décor and ambiance is very nice. When we were there, there was live music - very pleasant. I had the fish, lobster ring, and 2 shrimp combo, my husband had the ropa viega. Both were good. The lobster was overcooked, which seems to be... More

According to some reviews here this is an excellent restaurant. Definitely not so. The dishes which range from Lobster, through Prawns, Pork, Lamb and Fish are all good but fall slightly short of brilliance by being just a little under-seasoned. I visited here twice last month because it is dependable and the food is good. The owners and chef are... More

Tucked away in a quiet street in the lovely town of Trinidad, Cubita wouldn't have been out of place in a Spanish beach resort. The decor is lovely, service quick and efficient and food is excellent. We visited at lunch and had paella, which was delicious. We were also tempted to try a local dessert, which sounded like an odd... More

I was recently recommended to dine at Cubita by my tour guide while in Trinidad and I was not disappointed! I ordered a chicken & cheese dish and while the food wasn't extraordinary, it wasn't too bad considering the price. There was live music and the musicians didn't seem too forceful when making their rounds to try to sell their... More

Cuba is not known for its great restaurant service, but Cubita in Trinidad is an exception. We were seated immediately and the service was exceptional. We ate their two nights and both nights the food was really tasty. I highly recommend Cubita in Trinidad.

Cool little restaurant with English menus and a reasonable wine list. Food was good and the live back ground music very good.

Nice atmosphere and friendly service, appears inexpensive to tourists but if you're on a budget there is probably better value elswhere. We found the food a bit inconsistent, my amin of pulled lamb was ok but my wife's chicken "kebab" was simply bland pieces of breast and a few veggie chunks shoved on a skewer, never seeing a grill, a...
