The moment I lay eyes on this restaurant, I knew I will like it. A lot of people eat here so i decided to try it. I come at least twice during my visit. Food is fresh and delicious. Have to try it for yourself.

Went here many times.They have the best Paella in Varadero. My wife had the chicken and pork options and both were excellent as well. Four of us ate there with drinks (2-3 rounds) for $40.

This place is on the main drag around 37th. The place is always busy so we paid a visit. We were not disappointed. For "cheap eats", the portion was adequate. The food was good and the service was also good. The place was very busy. I was not disappointed.

I hated out of season Varadero, despite the beautiful beach. However, amongst all the empty restaurants, we found this place to be great. Helpful staff, local guests as well as us tourists, and nice food. I had the Uruguyan pork, Laura the fried chicken. Decent price too. Its my humble opinion you'll never be bowled away by culinary options in... More

If you are looking for Cuban food, this is a place to go. The setting is nice, food arrives soon and it is very tasty. Do not expect a fancy dish, just the usual meat vs. fish with rice, black beans, chips, etc.

The general atmosphere it's okay. The meals are average. The personnel is fast and warm. This place used to be one hot spot in downtown Varadero. They used to serve cheap meals, but there are other options in the game in Varadero right now. Nevertheless is a nice place for a passing by quick'n'regular lunch.

Food here is standard Cuban fare, though quite well cooked (fried chicken especially tasty and juicy). Rapidly served, which was lucky because in the space of half an hour here, both of us came away with over 30 mosquito bites each - a function of there being no air con (expected) or fans (unlike most other restaurants in Varadero).

Great place to go with your family and friends!! Amazing food and very fast service. Right downtown VARADERO, price and menu are amazing. 4 pax 28 Vic 2 chickens, 1-shrimps, 1-beff and drinks. But they need to improve in customer service! But I really recommend this place

Highly recommended if you are looking for local food with local people and very affordable prices. Only thing is that as with other restaurants in Cuba, they don’t always have everything on the menu. They were out of many items. Great Cuban dishes, vaca frita, ropa vieja, porc, moros y cristianos, fried plantain etc.

I visited for the first time a couple of days ago and had to come back again as it is one of the best places for eating in Varadero and has great prices , good service and ambiance. Highly recommend it for low budget and good quality eating.
