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.

Waiters were wonderful here. Had a roasted half-chicken dinner with salad, rice and beans, banana chips, beer and a tip for only 7 CUC.

It's actually pretty nice. Great view, right on the beach. Good wait staff one day. The other day the waitress forgot one of the orders. OOps. Half an hour wait for rice and vianda. Beer is cheap. Good for lunch. I had a good fish there one day. Too salty. Almost always too salty in Cuba.
