The best restaurant in Cienfuegos

This was easily our best meal in Cienfuegos, and one of the best we had during our 10 days in Cuba. The food was awesome (we had fish and garlic prawns), the service fantastic (our waiter spoke excellent English), and the drinks (we had pineapple juice, mojitos, daiquiri) also great. And it's all... read more

I had the opportunity to take some of my Cuban friends to eat here. The waiters showed me the menu and gave me a price. When the food came and was consumed. The price was changed. I questioned them. After some discussion, and they discovered, I had someone high official in the local government as a guest. They quickly backed... More

Great service and great good - this was one of the best meals we had in Cuba. Never before has a waiter come to the table with a bottle of spirits to see if my cocktail is strong enough... 10/10

The food was excellent, but the service superb. One of the best restaurants we have been during our 1 month stay in Cuba. I can highly recommend this restaurant - book well in advance! Not exactly in the city centre, but still easily reachable on foot.

Although the environment was great, the menu choice good, and the service efficient, this restaurant clearly caters to tour groups who are in and out quickly. We did feel quite rushed through our meal and chivied along to the next course or more drinks quite quickly. Food was good, especially the prawns in Creole sauce.

The restaurant itself is very nice, and especially the service was excellent as well as the traditional cuban food. Try the traditional recommendations of the house. Probably the best restraurant we have been to on our trip to Kuba.
