Excellent reasonably priced restaurant

The restaurant was located one floor up a flight of stairs, when we were there it was too windy to eat on the balcony. The restaurant with the balcony doors closed is small with tables and chairs close together. We had the lamb speciality, more like mutton but very tender and very good in a nice... read more

Really enjoyed the casa specialities... Rabbit and lamb. Make sure you book early in the morning and request a table by the balcony - great spot for people watching :-)

Rabbit is a house specialty. Well-prepared, in a bar-b-que style. A tasteful, friendly paladar that does its very best to overcome the disadvantages of the food scene in Cuba. Nice balcony dining and interesting, eclectic decor. Recommended.

This place is very nice. The food was good. It has a very mellow atmosphere and they have live music. Either a man with a guitar singing very romantic music or some ladies that sing. I strongly recommend this place.

Staying in the Casa particulares of Yarek and Kenia to which the restaurant Doña Nora is attached was the highlight of my stay. Yarek is a fantastic host and his food recommendations was spot on. The lamb, rabbit and fish dishes which I enjoyed on the three nights I was there were excellent and value for money! Attentive service, good... More

I discovered this place practically by luck when I was in Cienfuegos. If I to be honest, the place suprised to me for the quality of the food and for the enviorment of the local. The local has two terraces (one placed on the roof of the local) with a good views to the city and also to the sea.... More

We had probably our best meal while in Cienfuegos in Dona Nina. it is a lovely, charming place a short walk from the main square back towards the Malecon. it is very reasonable, the menus is pretty wide and the service was very good. I love those old colonial buildings, it gives off a great atmosphere to relax and eat... More

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.
