refreshing restaurant

They have a spanish chef who knows how to cook proper spanish cuisine. The place was good it was a bit on top of a hill so you have some breeze coming in to cool you down in a very hot and humid weather of Cuba. The food was average though as most of the restaurants in Cuba are. The... read more

Was lovely to sit on the outside covered patio, feel the warm breezes, and enjoy our food and beverages. The food was more 4 star, at least what we had that day, and thought the food prices slightly higher than other locations we experienced, but the cocktails were the best we've had and 2.50 each. Service was great. So drinks,... More

What can I say I set down ordered a meal and what showed up was an gastronomical experience beyond compare. To say the least it was exquisitely delicious. I ordered steak came with fresh vegetables. The house wine was out of this world, the service was beyond compare. Friendly smiles, they go above and beyond to please you. For desert,... More

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
