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.

My wife and I have been to Cuba 7 times and we always make sure to stop in here while in Varadero. Great food, Great location on the Beach. Prices are very reasonable and there is usually a Band playing throughout the day, Clean, safe and extremely comfortable.

A wonderful little beachfront dining spot with authentic Cuban dishes. Limited menu but good food and very reasonable prices.

Fresh salad with our meals, and each time the vegetables served with our meals was a little different. Price is very reasonable (inexpensive). 1/4 chicken meal is awesome, as is the bbq (chicken, pork,... More

Thanks to a suggestion by Felix, our waiter at Iberostar Laguna Azul resort, we tried El Caney's for dinner. I am personally not a fan of Lobster, but I have to admit, I had the best lobster I have ever tried at El Caney's. The restaurant was quaint, comfortable, and a friendly atmosphere, and the food was the best I... More
