Great prices, good service

We enjoyed having dinner and lunch at La Vicaria. There is a good selection of items on the menu and the prices are reasonable. Try the garlic shrimp and the Vicaria style fish...delicious!!! I look forward to going again in March.

Great place to have lunch, they open at 1230. The service and food were great. Restaurant is an open atmosphere so you can eat and look at the old cars pass by.

When we visited Varadero we came to this restaurant 3 separate times. The food here is excellent and a great value. Great drinks but the mojitos are extremely over priced.

We had lunch here one time and they even had french fries! Service was fast and friendly. We had come here for drinks previously and the Pina Colada and Mojitos are very good. It is a comfy place for light meals too. We also noticed that they have a very good breakfast for 2.60 CUC.

We visited this restaurant several times which was popular with Cubans and tourists. The staff were efficient and attentive. Meals were large and well cooked and very reasonably priced. Drinks were also cheap eg. beer was 1 CUC for Buccanero or a Crystal can.
