Great afternoon drink spot...

Okay... it's hokey, the food is just meh, it's more expensive than it needs to be, and there is absolutely no genuine connection to Al Capone, but it's right on the beach, and the service is friendly. Great spot to hang out and have drinks all afternoon, and feed the pelicans. Cool!

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

A nice location, though there is no proof that Al Capone was ever there. The food was better than that in the hotel. But not great for the price.

My boyfriend and I travelled to Varadero and although we truly enjoyed our resort, we wanted to explore the tastes, sounds and sights outside of the resort. We asked our cab driver to recommend a fine dining type of restaurant and we ended up at La Casa De Al for dinner. It was an unforgettable experience! We sat outside overlooking... More

The sea over at Kawama seemed even nicer than at our beach in Varadero! It was even more turquoise and just stunning. The menu has dishes named after mobsters, which was... More

My husband and I both had the paella. It was excellent. The restaurant was beautiful. We sat in the area that was between inside and outside. Beautiful evening. The sun had gone down by the time we left. Definitely a place to go. And historic too. A short walk from our resort which was a bonus. We shared dessert, the... More

Praise for the calamari, every time we go it's been great. This time that we went was a huge disappointment. They barely had anything available on their menu,... More
