We had fish soups (2CUC), fish fillets with rice and veg (7CUC), coffes (2CUC). The kitchen is open, you could see how do they prepare their food. We would recommend this little beachfront restaurant... More

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.

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...
