I have visited this restaurant on several occasions with Cuban friends. The atmosphere at this outdoor restaurant is so relaxing and you get to mingle with the locals. The food is always delicious and I would highly recommend this restaurant. I have tried several of their dishes through the years and have never been disappointed with any of them.

While in this area of Cuba this is a must. Great owners and great food. I have never been disappointed. And the price is right. It's nice to get off of the resort to mingle with the villagers. Have met some wonderful people there and it's always nice to see Erlin and her hubby Fernando.

Ferlin's restaurant is located in the village of Marea del Portillo, about 2 km from the resort. You can go by bike, taxi or, for an even more authentic cultural experience, take... More

The beach is down a lonely path about 200 feet away or more. No lights as you walk down to the beach bar. The beach at Marea Del Portillo, some 400 feet down the beach is great, new soft beach chairs . The beach is cleaned each morning by two very nice men. The pool bar at this beach is... More

Went to this wonderful intimate restaurant twice during our visit in December 2013. First time was with 8 people for dinner. Food and service was excellent. The shrimp... camarones.. dishes were amazing. The service was perfection. And the cost was very inexpensive. Highly recommend if you are staying at Marea del Portillo. Horse and buggy ride only costs 4 pesos... More

Restaurant Ferlin was founded by one chef from Marea Del Portillo resort. Our family visited it in December 2013. The menu was offered only two dishes and salad. One of them was the roast pork and the second dish is a blue chicken (fried chicken wrapped in ham and cheese). Very tasty! A small selection, but this is a Cuba.... More

This was a great place to eat. Super CHEAP and very yummy! Four of us ate for $19! I would try one of everything! LOL. We ate there twice. The owner and his wife (Fernando and Erlin) are super friendly and happy to host! Note, Fernando works at the Resort as a cook!!!
