We spent an afternoon exploring this colonial town and made every effort to go into places where were invited into but this one was a welcome surprise. From the ground floor side entry to this restaurant -bar, we walked up a spiral staircase to breathtaking views of the town of Trinidad. We sat down in an outdoor patio setting perched... More

Wonderful view from the fabulous terrace, where you can see the whole Trinidad from above, to go at sunset. Very good food with typical dishes. Funny live music.

We stopped by to get a cocktail after a tour and ended up meeting 2 other Americans, an attorney from Flordia and her male friend. The drinks were good and the view is also nice.

Small and cozy bar at the top. Wonderful view over Trinidad and sunsets. Very good drinks and service so we kept coming back. Didn't eat a lot- a bit overpriced maybe, but the Ropa Vieja was good. Bought a CD from the great band Los Parranderos- however nothing is recorded on the CD :(

Good view but a bit cramped, there are a few roof top terrace bars/restaurants in Trinidad that all serve good cocktails and excellent views. We did not eat here but the food did look very nice. The free welcome canchancharar cocktail was a nice touch & tasted way nicer than others we had tried.

Great views of old trinidad from the rooftop terrace of this restaurant located behind the cathedral of trinidad. The food was reasonably good (not very original though but this is Cuba...). Good music from a local band playing on the terrace and nice staff.

Visited the terrace for drinks just before sunset. Sitting in front row sipping Canchancharas while the band was playing and the sun was setting - awesome! We did not stay for dinner as the tiny terrace did not appear appropriate for dining.

I visited this restaurant with my friends and we met with horrible service. We waited long time for menu. Then we waited very long time for our food. Finally two orders were wrong and my friends did not get their dinner. We disgusted left this restaurant. My hungry friend was really angry.
