One of my top 5 in Varadero, I go to the Roncho everytime I'm in town, fod is great and service is fast and professional, the authentic Cuban cuisine is very good and the local sea food is delicious, very good quality for very reasonable cost.

We had one of the best meals of our entire stay here. It was affordable and delicious. If I ever went back to Varadero, this would be our first stop.
