Casa del Chef, Varadero - A delight

We stayed in Varadero the first week of March, 2015. Went for a walk and nearly missed this restaurant. Small, inconspicuous but very glad we ate there. My son had lobster (14p), my wife had chicken (5p) and I had shrimp (7p). Very tasty and quite delicious with a couple of 2p beers to round it... read more

The Casa de Chef was a great little place for lunch. We ordered four appetizers (2 "bread with taste", a soup, and a salad) The "bread with taste" was about the best bread we have had in cuba. Not the normal white bread at all. It was a different whole grain bread cooked with pork rind in it. VERY TASTY... More

Ok I get it was only $5 a plate but I couldn't eat it. All the other reviews we saw were great....HUH!?!?! Did like that they cooked the food on a charcoal grill right in front of you.

Nothing special, courses are like everywhere. May be i've chosen wrong dishes, but i wasn't surprised. Fish fillet wasn't soft and mellow. Soup was just an empty broch. But bread was delicious!

We visited this place, because it was close to our casa particular. However, I would suggest to eat at a another place with a cosier setting.
