Why did the Lonely Planet award a Top Choice to this place is beyond me - perhaps some kind of scheme as LP holders get a free cocktail and free wifi... The buffet offered for starters and desserts is absolutely disgusting - this is airline food quality, at best. The main (I had the lobster) was just ok. Very expensive... More

The only good thing about this restaurant is the service and the ice cream. We ordered fish, it was not grilled properly, the taste was average and the texture of the fish was very weird. The food served at the buffet was cold and there wasn't much to choose from. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

They offer a buffet for entrées and deserts, which may be a problem, as all this food is exposed for hours in the heat. We chose grilled lobster as main, 55ps with 2 beers and limon. We had a stunning view of the sunset from this rooftop restaurant. Maybe go there for pre-dinner drinks and have dinner in town.

What a great place; a buffet with good food and a stunning view over the old city of Trinidad. A must if you like good food. The wine is good, the personnel friendly and you even can sit on the roof. Go if the sun goes down!

Had a great meal here, views were nice and service was fantastic! Would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Trinidad... Little pricier, but you certainly get for what you pay for.

I went to Vista by night and hence can't comment on the views that it offers, but what I liked about the place was that they have a semi-buffet for the appetizers and then you can order a main course. This way I got to try quite a few dishes - especially their lobster carpaccio was nice. For mains I... More

The views over Trinidad as night fell were amazing and the ambience was lovely.The food was good with a buffet and a choice of the main course for extra payment. The staff were very pleasant and helpful and everywhere was very clean and hygienic.

We were sent here by our seemingly helpful bellboy who strongly suggested we come to Vista 'Gourmet' upon our arrival into Trinidad. Clearly, there is a referral system in place as the waiter at the restaurant pressed us for many details about who specifically sent us there. This, I have no issue with provided that the food is good. It... More

The view of this restaurant is breathtaking, while the food is less memorable. More in detail: - The restaurant is set on 2 levels, the main restaurant in the lower level (also where the buffet is) and a huge terrace at the top. We were given a table upstairs because there was no more room in the main restaurant, but... More

This restaurant was a bit of a bad experience. The fish was not fresh and the pork too dry. There was not a lot of "gourmet" to find in this place, only the cocktails were OK.
