We were desperate for some decent food after our resort experience. The shrimp and chicken were pretty good. The steak was a bit tough though. Bathroom was filthy!

I liked the prices but the food wasn't that great. We ate here because the place next door was closed.

It takes some time before the waitress approach you. Food quality on the average, nothing special that you can't have any local restaurant that provided better service.

Awful service: not only because we have had to wait almost 30 min before been sited, but also – and especially – because all the waiters seemed not to notice our presence. We’ve tried several times to capture the waiters’ attention, since we’ve literally tackled one of them in order to know what to do. When finally sited, we’ve enjoyed... More

Centrally located along the Varadero "strip", pleasant and welcoming, good menu, good service, cold beer. Open wall concept could be a bit too breezy some days.

Beer was only 1.50 CUC, great value and great food. The chicken looked amazing and the terrasse was clean with no stray animals wandering around (which seems to be part of the landscape throughout Varadero)

The food in this restaurant is passable for the value of you money. The drinks though are another story. We ordered mojitos which were very weak and very expensive. the server didn't seem to understand English very well and she was grumpy. I do not recommend this restaurant.

I got drawn in by the menu, with Chicken Cordon Blue on my mind. Turned out overcooked and a fishy taste to the batter. The wifes shrimp dinner was bland. Oh well Lots of great spots to eat in Varadero, this has a great view of 1st ave traffic.

This restaurant was a disappointment, it's not cheap (6$ for chicken and vegetables) the chicken looked like it had been reheated from lunch and it was dry...the vegetables were tasteless. There are mosquitoes and most of the tables are poorly lit, ants were wandering on the table... The server asked for a tip when she was bringing the "cuenta" usually... More

So our hotel food was nothing to rave about and my friend and her kids were to afraid to try food elsewhere. I decided to go shopping at the market in Varadero, and one of the hotel staff told me about La Vicaria, since I said I wanted to try real Cuban food. I ordered the shrimp cocktail appetizer, and...
