I dined here on a recent trip to Trinidad. I thoroughly enjoyed my lunch. The service was excellent and the food quite tasty. The ambiance is wonderful. The location on the Plaza Mayor is perfectly central.

We chose this place based on reviews. Note, they only accept dinner reservations for 7pm. After it, it is just a walk-in system. While other restaurants in Trinidad have a line in front of the place, at Sol Ananda they bring you into a patio. You will wait there. The menu shows at effort to move away from the traditional...

We ate lunch here on new years eve. The restaurant has an interesting history - it's like eating in a museum. Our table was literally next to a bed. Food was delicious. I ate the lobster specialty dish - best lobster dish I had in Cuba (and I ate a lot of lobster over 10 days!)

The lunch here was very good. Best of all is the restaurant. It is like eating in a museum. It is an old house, willed with beautiful glassware and porcelain. There are a number of small rooms too which make dining there a more intimate experience. Not to be missed if you stay in Trinidad.

5 of us went for dinner in December. This is a wonderfully charming restaurant with a very diverse menu. One pleasant surprise for us was the mushroom curry and that the wine list included Gato Negro wines from Chile. If you are in Trinidad, Sol Ananda can be a very cool experience. Service may be a little choppy-we didnt all... More

Sol Ananda is a Restaurant located in a beautiful colonial house in the heart of Trinidad and close to Plaza Mayor. We have been impressed by the wide variety of dishes (Cuban, European, Indian and Oriental flavours) and the quality of the food. Staff is polite and responsive. This has been the best restaurant we have found in Trinidad.

We arrived early enough that we did not have to wait for a table, however the service was slow but the food was good by Cuban standards. The atmosphere was very good and there were lots of pieces of furniture including an old bed to add interest.

The waiting time before getting a table was pretty long but well worth it. The location is a beautiful old home made into a restaurant with authentic pieces from the colonial time. A local band played live salsa and the atmosphere was very good. Me and my family ordered shrimps, lobster and fish and we all were very satisfied with... More
