Food was decent. No complaints there. The service is rather slow (I had been there 4 years ago and nothing has changed!). And it's pretty expensive. We paid $15 per meal, $2.50 per water.

The service was ok, but the food was awful. The pasta cost almost 10$ and contained canned mushrooms, they only had 2 sorts of pastas out of 4 that was listed on the menu, the food was very overpriced! Very touristic place. There're many more restaurants in Varadero that gives you better food and better value than Dante...

The setting of this restaurant is in the middle of the park on the main street of varadero. If you like Italian food then go here. The pizza and Bruschetta is Delicious. there is also a lovely view of the pond. The only down fall we had was it was very hot out and the restaurant seemed just as hot... More

When in Varadero, we always come here. The food, the location and the staff are great. We always order a plate with 3 different handmade pastas and we are never disappointed. The cost for a good meal is about 35.00 per couple.

Enjoyed our lunch in this park restaurant. The special with the spaghetti, cannelloni and lasagna was very good. Prices seemed a bit higher than elsewhere in Varadero, but paying for the lovely location.

We just happened to be in the park around lunch time so we decided to try it. We had the dish with the 3 different pastas and it was delicious! Would definitely return again.

We had an OK meal. The wine turned out to sockingly expensive at $50 a bottle for cheap Chilean red. There was no wine list with prices; guess that's how the get you.
