La Botija Tavern

Anyone visiting Trinidad will find themselves pretty spoilt for choice when it comes to dining options. Those in the know put an evening at Taberna La Botija near the top of their list, even more if you want to rest from Cuba cuisine. Regular live music, first-rate service and a generous range of fabulous dishes of pasta, pizzas, burgers, kebabs or tapas keeps diners coming back time and again.

Situated in the beating heart of the old town, the lively vibe at Taberna La Botija makes it one of Trinidad’s truly unique dining destinations, and anyone thinking of grabbing a table here is guaranteed a great night out.

One of the things that makes it so special is the fact that you can catch some seriously good live music here. Superb live jazz bands perform regularly at Taberna La Botija, and while there’s a Cuban flavour to some of the performances the emphasis is definitely on a more contemporary sound. Young musicians frequently show up and the eclectic mix you’ll hear is a world away from the more traditional flavour heard in most local establishments. This refreshing alternative to Trinidad’s entertainment scene is a huge hit with tourists and locals alike and means Taberna La Botija is regularly packed out.

While the live entertainment is one of its undoubted charms, the food at Taberna La Botija is also very much worth a mention - not only for the quality but for the diverse range of dishes on offer. While many restaurants in the area specialize in Cuban cuisine, Taberna La Botija offers a wider choice of more familiar options. As well as 9 different types of freshly-made pizzas, you’ll find pasta dishes, tasty burgers, BBQ kebabs and a delicious selection of tapas - the meatballs consistently get rave reviews. Essentially, if you’re looking for a menu to keep everyone happy this is the place to come.

Taberna La Botija combines seriously good food, a buzzing atmosphere and exemplary service from a truly hospitable front of house team. The bar also offers a great selection of drinks including beers, wines and a choice of fabulously mixed cocktails.

This winning formula makes Taberna La Botija the kind of place that turns an evening meal into a real occasion. Sure, if you’re looking for an intimate meal out then it might not be the place for you. But for a fun night out, particularly with the family or a group of friends, it’s pretty much the number one venue to head to in Trinidad.
