This is a small restaurant for the locals and located in the Parque Josone right beside the Beetles Bar off of 1st Ave. We were drawn to it by one of the restaurant waiters who was placed at the entrance to the park with a menu to show.

I ate here with my sister during a recent trip to Varadero. The food and the service were fantastic. It was a great way to experience traditional Cuban food.

This restaurant it’s located inside Josone's park. Good place for typical rural Cuban food. Dishes are huge so we recommend sharing. We had a combo made of beef, porc and rice, delicious!

Stopped in here for some appetizers and drinks as we were walking through Josone Park. We had the kitchen do up a bunch of 'small plates' for our group of 8, along with some bread (amazing) and drinks (excellent wine). Would definitely recommend it for a full meal. Fantastic service, too.

While on our Havana excursion our tour guide recommended this restaurant to us. I am so happy we took the time to go into town and find it in the centre of their beautiful park. Food was delicious. Service was great.

Went here on the recommendation of the announcer on the hop on/hop off bus. Enter the park, cross the white bridge and go up the stone steps and you're there. Cool looking stone building. Inside the A/C was glorious on a smouldering hot day. Menu comes as a series of laminated cards and you just hand the waiter the one... More

Our Sunwing rep at the resort recommended La Campana as the best authentic Cuban in Varadero and he was right! The restaurant is beautiful and we loved the trek through the park to get there. We found the value to be great, the lobster was $18 which was the best price we saw all trip. You get a tonne of... More

Situated inside Parque Josone, it's a nice place, the food is tasty and the portions abundant, expect to pay 12-13 CUCs per person for a meal that will leave you satisfied, not much for first world restaurants, but very high for Cuban standards, where you can eat a complete meal for 1-2 CUCs The staff is friendly and polite, the...
