There will be a line, but don't hesitate. This place is worth the wait. It's fun, there's a good band playing, and you're about to be jammed into a little place that's full of happy people. Cuba isn't known for pizza but it's good here. This was our favorite place in Trinidad and our 3rd overall in Cuba (out of... More

We went to this place because there was a queue of people waiting to get in the day before. What a mistake that was !

We just wandered past one night & were drawn by the fabulous music being played by a 3 piece band incl a girl singer - they were fabulous! The tapas food that was served by the cool staff was superb traditional food, but with a Caribbean touch and delicious. Visit this place later in the evening to avoid queuing. Phil... More

We walked past and saw a queue outside so we decided to line up too. It ended up being a great decision as the food was amazing, a great tapas menu as well as a good selection of mains and cocktails. Very cool decor and live music too. This was probably the best restaurant we found in cuba.

Tucked away nearby the Plaja Major. Great tapas selection; as good as any of the places we had visited on our holiday but a lot less expensive. Well worth a visit, we went for lunch and got a table straightaway, however within 15 minutes, there was a big queue outside.
