We very seldom eat at the same place twice while on vacation. However this place was the exception to the rule. We visited here each day were were in Trinidad, sometimes more than once a day to stop in for a beverage and snack as well as having our evening meal here each night. The food here is very good...

Had to wait for a table and were given a cocktail whilst waiting. Live music to entertain. Close to casa de la musique.

We went on the recommendation of our Casa owner. Menu offered only a small choice for starters and a basic meat with salad and rice. The shredded lamb and shrimp gratin we chose were very tasty, but the accompaniments were pretty bland. Service was friendly but quite slow. Wouldn't go back.

There were five of us for dinner and no one of us enjoyed it. The service was very slow and our waiter was not too pleasant. The shrimp was overcooked and the meals came out not warm. Would not recommend this restuarant.

Plain spaghetti that tasted like dirty diswater, a piece of grey fish with no sauce or butter or anything on it, and an attitude from the waiter when we asked if my dish was coming. This after waiting 2 hours and the rest of the table had been served. We paid and left after 3 hours, I never got my... More

Was a nice location, but you are sitting on one of the main places, but inside, so because they got big windows, there is a lot of air and it's opened, but a lot of people will stare at you :D Food was ok, not to much for vegetarians. Live Band was cool tough!

Nice location, but the food was not up to par. Although the fish was excellent, the minestrone soup and the pork dish were both poor. The pork was so tough, we couldn't eat it. Also, our "free welcome cocktail" arrived after we had purchased a cocktail. Not very good service.

the food is incredible, there was a live band in there and it was always super busy. Try and book in advance or be ready to wait. Worth it though.

You should definitely eat at Esquerra while staying in Trinidad. They serve good food to a reasonable price, and have a friendly staff. The drinks at the restaurant is good, try the Trinidad Colonial!
