“Retaurants in Holguin”
Reviewed 3 June 2012

Hi to all, I have tried the restaurant in Holguin De La Trova but I have found it OK. The better restaurant is the 1910. Th food is amazing with making use of local fresh produce at all times. The atmosphere is great and the staff the most friendly people you could wish to meet. Beware though the portions are huge as we made a mistake the first time as the portion was huge. I have now visited the restaurant about 8 times and have never been let down. As a bonus all the menus come in English as well as Spanish. So go on next time your there just ttry it youwill love it.

Regards Bruce

“Great music, drinks and atmosphere. Be careful of hustlers”
Reviewed 6 March 2012

The Trova is a gem, great music and a real cool setting. Just be aware of where you are, and who else may be there (hint - if someone is just too nice to you, and speaks far too much english (a Cuban), it likely is not for positive reasons. Great bartenders.

“Less is more”
Reviewed 13 January 2012

Lively music with a very engaging Cuban group but went on too long. The group was great with engaging the audience, getting them to participate but should know when to stop - like after 45 minutes when everyone's eyes started glazing over? But great atmosphere in an art deco building.

“not a huge fan”
Reviewed 25 November 2011

During my stay in Holguin I was not a huge fan of this place. It is a small bar/patio area with usually, live muscians where people can sit and have a beer and stare at everyone that walks by. The reason why I don't like it is because it is too crowded inside (especailly at night), it gets VERY hot (there is no AC), and there are TOO many prositutes and nasty older men looking to find one at this place. There are nicer places in Holguin where you can go to listen to live music and not be in this akward environment.
