If you want a lot of choices and a gorgeous view, or just a glass of wine to savor the sunset, you won't be disappointed. The staff is excellent and the food was very good. There are traditional Cuban dishes served with a flair and also a nice choice of European food. Wine list is diverse (the owner is an... More

We made a reservation here as we heard it was very busy, and we were right to do so. You can chose to include in your meal all the starters and desert from the buffet which makes this place good value. The main meals we had (pulled pork and slow cooked beef) were tasty but a little bland. However I... More

The food was decent (ie buffet) and service was exceptional. The menu was complicated which shouldn't be an issue when going to a restaurant. Plus, I still haven't gotten over the prices for Cuban restaurants.

I visited the restaurant in mid December 2016 with a group of friends. The buffet was extensive and of high quality and the service was brilliant!!! I absolutely loved the mixture of local and international food. All in all, a perfect choice in Trinidad.

We went to El Bolo Vista Gourmet because of Lonely Planet recommendation but the dinner was disappointing. The buffet has a "bite off more than you chew" problem: there is the willingness to offer several fancy dishes but none of them is excellent, on the contrary the result is poor or average. That said I believe this restaurant is overrated... More

Food was pretty bad. Service fine. We didn't get the buffet because it was so picked over. The view doesn't make up for it. Cubita was 100x better.

I started to fell that I wasn't going to get a good meal in Cuba until I came along this restaurant. It is located on the 2nd and Roof top about 50 ft from a main walkway. So you have to look for it. The owners travel twice a week to Havana to get imported produce for the buffet. Steak,... More

We were positively surprised by this buffet restaurant where you can order a main dish a la carte and get a lot of side dishes from the buffet. The service is good and staff is friendly. Food was good.
