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.

We stopped by nearly every day for 11 days last Feb. Good pricing for a Beachfront Bar/Restaurant. We usually had just a couple drinks, but we tried both the chicken and garlic shrimp and they were great. Unbeatable views from a rustic Palapa style place set among the palms

We had a really good pina colada here and the view of the ocean was wonderful. It's a good place to stop for awhile to relax and have refreshments

There are two El Caney restautants located a couple of blocks apart. Food is good at both but the one on the beacgh next to the public beach area has the best view but a less extensive menu. Reasonable prices and good food.
