Went there for a birthday. This restaurant was across our hotel Villa Cuba. Anyways, this restaurant is very small and doesn't have air conditioner. We were group of 5 and had barely place to sit. The washrooms had no toilet paper... We ordered steak and it was very dry even though we asked med. done. We barely could finish it.... More

They had a special that included a steak covered with a nice mushroom sauce, huge lobster tail and shrimps that was the best meal I've ever had in Varadero in 8 years. Their seafood piaya was fantastic as well. There was a really cool ambience there and their a/c unit was working unlike many other restaraunts in Cuba. Only thing... More

Went to this restaurant in november 2014. We actually had a great time. A band offered to play music and it was pretty good. I ordered the special (steak and sea food) and it was overpriced. Because I eat it rare, they probably put mine first and let it lay on the plate while cooking my friend's steak. When it... More

My wife and I ordered Spanish Steak and I have to say that it was the best steak meal I have ever eaten. It was seasoned perfectly, cooked exactly as I asked, and the accompanying vegetables were very fresh and crisp. The french fries had a flavor that I cannot describe but they were amazing! The service was excellent and... More

Best sangria I have ever, ever encountered! Surf and turf, delicious for 25 pesos. Service impeccable! Highly recommended!

I had the grilled lobster and it tasted like chicken. It was overcooked and chewy. The salad that came with it was just cabbage and other veggies with no dressing or taste. They give you olive oil and vinaigrette but that doesn't really go with slaw. Only two options for dessert -- frozen mousse or ice cream.

On our recent trip to Varadero, my husband and I stopped at this quaint restaurant for dinner. Having been to Cuba two times previous, I knew about this restaurant's reputation for Lobster at a cheap price. My husband was skeptical, but he was willing to try it. He was NOT disappointed! Not only was the service AMAZING, but each of... More

We had a lobster evening at Meson del Quijote, and it was good if you like rock lobster, which I do not really do. The rock lobster tends to be dty and when grilled it becomes even dryer. It's a question of personal taste though and the lobster may just be the greatest thing there is for others. Only other... More
