Scenic and Informative

Not a seafood or meat eater myself, but the restaurant was an attraction in itself. The interior was chocful of mafia history, Al Capone's living, and coconuts falling off the trees.

What a Casa and you can easily imagine what it was like when he actually lived there! He definitely had a taste for the good life!

Lovely view from the restaurant, stunning actually of the sunset over the ocean however the dining experience was pretty terrible in all honesty. The waiter, although pleasant enough was useless. It was as if they'd just got a random guy in off the street and asked him to wait tables. He could barely speak any English and couldn't understand what... More

I only gave it a 4 out of 5 because when you sit outside there are people constantly trying to sell you things. If you sit back, away from the wall to the beach it would get a 5. The service was perfect and the food was delicious! The view at sunset is beautiful! The staff respects the little cats... More

This place looks very nice from the outside and is equally nice when you enter. You must sit outside with a view to the white beaches of Varadero. At the time we were there they had a band playing the usual famous "tourist "songs. The service was very good when we were there during lunch and food was good though... More

I heard about this resturant from a client of mine. And she total me it was great and it was. The food was great, the service was fast and great. And the day we were there there was a small Cuban band singing while we ate. They were great as well. I highly recommend this place to everyone.

Food here is excellent, the wait staff are outstanding and you don't mind tipping well when service is this good. We go there once everytime we go to Varadero
