Our newest bistro find in the heart of San Fernando

Shared experiences around tables is close to my heart and when it is in South Trinidad, as a central/southerner it feels to me extra special to explore and find right in my own backyard.

How well do you know San ‘do? Lewis Street runs parellel to Chancery Lane, which is the Main Street that runs East of and parellel to landmarks like San’do General Hospital, Naparima Boys etc.

Lewis Street is one of the one way street, heading north. Almost all the way to the top of Lewis Street on the left handside, resides the eatery Cristiano’s Bistro. A parking nightmare on a work week day seemily a completely different scene early on a Saturday morning. With streetside parking Cristianos is easy to miss, but I hope to help. Their location signs run parallel to the street instead of perpendicular which I think would be easier for first timers to locate the southern eatery. Nonetheless Cristiano’s is situated just after Lesedi brides (noticeable by their large green sign) and shares a building with Omega Industries Limited. 

Nice, now that we are all here…
