Friendly place! The food was terrific! We had the BBQ lobster dinner, and fresh pina coladas. Incredible! The last time we were there they were opening a late night bar with local musicians.

Brought our entire family here (22 ppl) for a rehearsal dinner. Although the wait was long, this is to be expected in Cuba and also for such a large group. The wait was worth it however, as the food was fabulous and everyone had a great time! 22 people enjoyed a four course lobster dinner complete with soup, salad and... More

WOW! What a meal - 3 courses with grilled lobster for only $14 - you can't go wrong. My favourite meal of the holiday. We would have returned for more dinners but hotel wasn't that close. I recommend EVERYONE to go here!!

During our recent vacation in Varadero we enjoyed grilled lobster, fantastic service and warm atmosphere. Loved the live Cuban music......we'll be back next time we're in Varadero for sure.

The food was prepared well was hot and overall very good. The Pina coladas were great. The service is good but the time is defiantly cuban, don't stop in for something quick. And there are tons of cats hanging around, but they are friendly and I like cats.

I visited here because of the positive reviews on trip advisor and I was not disappointed, for 14 cucs Plus drinks you can have the Lobster 4 course set dinner and... More

My son, family and I ventured out to this little street-side restaurant and was greeted by the pleasant staff. Our order was a little long in coming to our table and could have been a bit warmer but over all the selections we made were done as ordered and presented well. An array of cats were gathered close to our... More
