Very Cool Old School Mansion/Bar/resturant.

Visited here before a show. Classy with good food. You can feel the history. Food of good quality with a quartet playing soothing music. Sits on a beach with a warm Caribbean breeze..perfect.

Just stopped in for a peak at the building, so I cant review their services. But it is a gorgeous old house, glad I stopped in.

Once the vacation home of the Dupont family, yhis old house, now a gourmet restaurant, a bar at the third floor and a boutique hotel, has been fully restored, the wood is shiny, the elevator from 1928 still working, along with the best view in Varadero with the golf club behind it

Very nice, we enjoyed stopping by and having a much needed cold beer and the views are stunning, and lots of history to be found.
