We were there in the afternoon and it was 3 hours to opening time. We ran into the owners of the restaurant by accident near the restaurant. They wellcame us in the restaurant and the meal was delicious especially their specialty lamb meal. Their hospitality is another issue that we felt ourselves with the close frieds.

Great restaurant, in a classic cuban building. Music, fabulous wine and the food was divine. I would have to say this meal was the best we had in Cuba. The meal was not expensive and of course the South American wine was amazing.

This restaurant was recommended by our casa & it exceeded expectations. Two of us had the house specialty of Borracho lamb & it was to die for. We had a fabulous Chilean carmenere wine to go with it. The entertainment also was very lovely.. Just winderful night.

We had to wait for more than an hour, but it was mothers' day in Cuba so there were lots of families for dinner. The food was worth it, and we ate under the stars on the terrace. Kenia and her husband are very sweet and Kenia told us all about their stay in France when she realized we were... More

Food so tasty and so cheap, we had to look twice at the bill to make sure they had charged us for everything! Live music both times we visited. Lively atmosphere and excellent service. Highly recommended

This paladar was recommended to us by our casa particular and we were happy we tried it out. A cute, small place, with a charming atmosphere and a great live band for background music. The food was very good for cuban standard. It is probably not 3-star michelin place but a top place compared to others we've been to in... More

I read some good reviews of this relatively new restaurant/paladar in Cienfuegos and was anxious to try it. I was with one of my friends from France and one of my local friends who lived in Cienfuegos. We each had something different and none of us liked what we had. I could hardly eat the Cordon Blue, no idead what... More
