Here is a summary of my experiences: Pros: - Great ambiance - Situated in a non-busy area of Centro Varadero (located... More

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.

First of all I should point out that the map reference on TA, is actually incorrect, the restaurant is located on Ave 1 between calle 12 & Calle 13. 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

We read about this restaurant on tripadvisor before travelling to Cuba, and all the reviews were positive about their grilled lobster. Therefore, we planned to try it, once in Varadero. However, once in Cuba, most of the Cubans in the resort advised us to try the grilled lobster at Waco's, another restaurant in Varadero, instead of Casa del Chef. On... More

This was my second trip to Varadero in less than a year. The grilled lobster is the best. Wonderful place to sit and have a drink, people watch. The staff are so friendly, the music is wonderful. A must see in Varadero.

We took the Varadero Tour Bus to the Varadero downtown. We got off at the downtown center near the clinic (near 64 ave). Shopped for about 1-2 hours, then took the yellow motorcycle taxi (5 CUC) to 12 ave which is about 4km away, and had lunch at La Casa del Chef (address is Avenida Primera y 12). The grilled... More
