High Expectations deflated quickly

I was really looking forward to finally going to visit Al Capone's place in Varadero. I was sorta disappointed when I finally got there. I thought lunch, a few drinks and spend some time there. That was my itinerary expectations for a few hours. Instead, after I took the bus downtown $15.00 for... read more

We had a very good meal and the house and property was very interesting. The steak and Lobster was awesome and the wine was flowing. The staff was awesome and even danced with the customers. I recommend it.

The Pina Coladas were awesome, and very strong. The view was nice, although this stretch of beach is not cleaned like the resort beaches, so there were piles of stinking seaweed and litter all over the place. I made the mistake of ordering a "Filet Mignon", and I have no idea what they actually brought me, but I can assure... More

If your craving a great steak,go to Al's. ...two can eat for under $25 cad.....great band playing good music..wonderful shrimp cocktails...and the view of the beach is worth the trip..located in the old part of the town and used by Alan Capo new as a smuggling point to bring rum to the states during prohibition...great experience and great service

This place is worth to visit because it has a great location and the house itself is very nice. Lobster looks amazing but it tastes only ok. For this price (25CUC) i would expect something more.

Dropped into this little place. Quite basic, but worth a look. Right in the beach. Not sure that the menu is that extensive and it's rather run down.

We'd been told to stop by this restaurant, and it just so happened that it was next door to our resort (Club Kawama). The building is very nice and well kept. As for the food, we were charged 13 CUC (+18$ CAD) for a plate with small shrimp cooked in garlic, onions and a lot of butter, with a side... More

A must visit restaurant in Varadero! Fine dining surrounded by Mob history. My wife's favourite. The views from the various dining levels are breath taking! I've never had a bad meal here. I make sure I have at least one nice meal here every time we visit Varadero!

I'm so glad we stopped in for a drink here one night. It was almost empty, which really leant to the spookiness of this old rundown palace. Sitting on the patio on a moonless evening, we chatted with local Cuban beach sellers and ruminated on what a unique and special place Cuba is. Finding this place after Capone left it... More
