Discovered this place because all the tour bus drivers were eating here. Good variety, Cuban style food. Group of 8 people, service was quick, got very busy after we arrived. Had 1/4 chicken with rice & black beans and 2 beer for $7 pesos. Paid $25 for basically the same meal 2 days before in Havana. highly recommend.

It is a decent restaurant and one of the few Government Owned restaurants that allows you to pay with visa. The washroom smelled terrible though, don't know why. Didn't dare use it

It's a pleasant enough resto. Service was uneven. We went twice - the second time because we were light on cash that day and they are one of a few restos that take credit cards. Too salty. Very poor vegetarian selection (which is a pretty uniform complaint against almost all Cuban restaurants)

We visited this place several times. The place is cleaner and more comfortable than many other Varadero restaurants. The food is great, the prices are bearable. I especially enjoyed their paeilla! The people working there were very friendly. We had a lot of fun talking to their barmen Teo whose profile looked a lot like Robert de Niro's :)

Good and affordable food. Service was bad since we walked into the restaurant close to 10 p.m. Overall, good place to grab dinner if not eating in your hotel.

Good option for large groups, good prices and quantity food. Nice view (First Ave, the main street in Varadero) and atmosphere. When the restaurant is full the service can be a little slow.
