We eat at this restaurant after seeing it recommended in the lonely planet guide - a big mistake! We thought the main courses were expensive but decided it must be good - to be fair the main course was not bad. The rip off was as others have suggested when we were offered Traditional starters and deserts - I should... More

We thought we were going to experience a taste of real Cuban food and hospitality so left the owner/manager/waiter to suggest a menu for the 4 of us. We had 4 main courses with... More

A certain guidebook rated this place as budget with most meals at $6.00. I went there and was presented with a menu with prices starting at $15.00. This was my first clue. I should have left, but being hungry and not wanting to search out another option I stayed. I had a lamb dish, decent enough but certainly not worth... More
