Sol Ananda: A Feast in 1750
To experience what it was like dining in 1750, as you enjoy a special “Soup of the Day” or a “Shrimp Cococurry”, the restaurant-museum Sol Ananda is placed exactly in front of the Plaza Mayor, in the center of the beautiful architectonic town that Trinidad is today.
While being the third house built in the city (it underwent a recent remodeling that preserved all the colonial original style) it possesses the best restaurant location in all Trinidad and the elegance that it deserves. Decorated with antiques, 19th century china and original gorgeous chandeliers, you’ll be taken back at a time that a table was positioned wherever there was room for the late night arriving customers, only that you can choose which antique to sit on.
The quality of the food has been praised for the ambitious ways it fusions authentic Cuban plates with Indian, Italian and even Japanese food. Cocktails are excellent, taking advantage of the sublime quality of the Cuban rum and Caribbean fresh fruits, specially the Daiquiri frappé which you can spend a pleasant night with, drinking in the garden, and enjoying the folklore of the city’s music.
A must-go to live a typical Cuban night in the XVIII century.
