One of the best paellas my husband has eaten. It's the only dish he's ordered here and we've gone several times. The garlic shrimp dish is one of my favourites. Friendly service and moderate prices.

Amazing food! Will be back next time I am in Cuba. This is for the one on the strip in Varadero. Beer is only 1 peso too :)

I see some reviews here that are from 2 places with the same name. They are owned and operated separately. I have been to both several times. The one on the beach offers great views and their beers went up to 1.25 since my last review. So you can sit and have 2 beers each for less than 5 pesos.I... More

Amazing fresh fish...tiny old hut on amazing beach...a flash from the post...true old time Cuba....maybe this is what you saw about 40 years ago and it is still the same...come in, have a beer and the catch of the day..and remember the quiet times before all the resorts arrived...I hope they can keep it like this...

Visited this beach side resto for the 3rd time :) and it was great just as we remembered! Brought my parents to enjoy this nice little gem by the ocean and they also enjoyed it! We had fresh fish and yummy shrimps. Good price and great food! Enjoy!

Excellent drinks, for as cheap as 2 CUC each (which is really a fair pricing cosidering the quality of drink and the excellent location of the place). The also serve good fish for a very price, however the veggies are disappointing (all canned). Overall would recommend a visit to this place and enjoy the view!

We looked forward to going here for their filet mignon but they took it off the menu and now you get strips of beef in mushroom gravy. Chewy and disappointing, to say the least.

We stumbled upon this restaurant while looking for a place to escape the heat one day. The food was excellent (I had camarones and congri) and the drinks were divine. Even better, at just 2.50 CUC for a piña colada, we were able to enjoy multiple :). This is a great dining destination in Varadero, particularly for those on a... More

This is a nice humble little restaurant to enjoy a better sense of the life of the most fortunate people of Varadero. It's Safe and the grilled fish or chicken is delish ! Cheap and Clean.
