We chose this place because of the view it offers. The sunsets are just amazing here. There was also a good live band on the terrace. I had a rissoto with shrimps which was quite tasty but the view was better.

Great view of the bell tower and sunset. Very good food and service. The night we were there, a young man was playing the guitar, which was a nice touch.

Nothing fancy here, with the basic local menu, but the food was well-prepared, the prices were reasonable and the music and food very pleasant. The service was not overly friendly, but seemed reasonable professional. Overall, a nice, low-key venue with tasty food.

I try to write truthful reviews and also to avoid places that could suck. We actually had El Tenedor on our list of spots to check out, but had already found other options during our first 2 days in Trinidad (best city ever?). We weren't terribly hungry and walked around the city for an hour or so beginning by this... More

The chef fixed us a special dish with freshly caught fish. It was delicious and it was served by the chef himself.

Beautiful warm evenings and soft breezes greet diners on the highest rooftop restaurant in Trinidad. Great food, friendly staff, magnificent views, and live music add to the romantic atmosphere. Always my first stop when in Trinidad.

Mid- to high-90s in late April, hot inside this restaurant where the ladies are cooking, but up the winding stairs and onto the roof, overlooking most of Trinidad, there was a light breeze and it was lovely. The four of us each had the crab special, a nice change from the mostly pork or chicken dinners we had been having.... More
