I have been quite a few times in the Ache. It is a paladar which could compete with any good restaurant in Europe or the US. The service maybe sometimes a bit slow (It's Cuba!), but the food is always excellent. Seafood, meat, everything cooked at its best. The prices are a bit above average, but still a bargain when...

After having a terrible dinner the night before in one of the paladares in the centre of Cienfuegos we decided to trust to Lonely Planet and our casa particulare owners and headed to Ache. It was our last night in Cuba and we agreed we could not have chosen the restaurant better. Service was excellent, waiters were nice and spoke... More

Really the best we have had in Cuba! The food was freshly prepared, tasty and high standards. It wasn't that easy to find as it's rather hidden in the residential area. It was worth the search and you will not be disappointed!

This was the best highly proffessional paladar we visited in cienfuegos and trinidad. Very friendly staff and a waiter who really wanted to talk past the initial politeness of dining. Would recommend it to anyone.

Further to the reviews below, I can support the remarks and say that compared to most places across Cuba, this place is a breath of fresh air. Wonderful, discreet, friendly and professional service. Thankfully, the food matches the quality of the service. Can't recommend it enough. Compared to some supposedly fancier places in the city like the yacht club (avoid... More

Lovely food and extremely attentive service. It's a bit off the beaten track but worth seeking out. Bici taxi drivers will help! Do try the lovely coconut pudding with cheese on the side.

But..the service and food is well worth the price. Portions are very big and the waiters are very well mannered and helpful. We had a blast here and were... More
