Sol Y Son Paladar

Sol y Son is a quaint, cosy restaurant occupying a 19th century home in Trinidad. Inside, you'll find a small dining room furnished with all kinds of quirky antiques, elegant statues, tiled floors and a glittering chandelier. In many ways, Sol y Son feels more like a museum than a restaurant and a meal out here feels like a truly unique dining experience.

This intimate and ever-popular restaurant is just a short walk from the main historic colonial centre and when you step inside, you’ll quickly get a sense that you’ve stumbled back in time.

One of Sol y Son’s most attractive features is its beautiful candlelit patio, which is situated at the rear of the restaurant. This secluded and romantic area makes for a tranquil escape from the lively main street and it’s pretty much the ideal place to enjoy an evening meal or ice-cold drink on a warm Cuban night.

In the evenings, diners are often treated to live entertainment with performances featuring traditional Cuban music – all of which adds to the wonderful ambiance in this most charming of settings.

You’ll also find an impressive range of dishes served up by the busy kitchen. Along with a wide selection of tasty vegetables dishes, diners can choose from a great choice of fresh fish and seafood, hearty pasta dishes and classic home-cooked Cuban cooking. Other tempting offerings include the excellent rum-glazed pork steak and Sol y Son is also know for serving up an extremely good roast chicken – something of a house favourite!

The restaurant also boasts its own wine cellar, which previously served as one of the property’s bedroom and you’ll notice the original mahogany furniture still remains.

Sol y Son is a real local favourite and regularly gets packed out, which invariably means the whole restaurant has a real buzz to it. If you’re looking to dine out in a truly stylish restaurant with a character quite unlike anywhere else in Trinidad, you’ll definitely find it at Sol y Son.

The service is always incredibly attentive and the friendly staff will cater to your every need to ensure you feel right at home. Return visits are inspired by this winning combination of excellent service, vibrant local atmosphere and consistently excellent food.

It’s also possible to book accommodation if you wish to stay over at Sol y Son. The property has two elegant rooms and both come with enormous beds and a private terrace area that offers fine views that look out across the surrounding neighbourhood.
