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.

I read about this here and decided to take a shot. Despite what most reviewers say it is not cheap(considering cuban standards). Prices are 20% higher than most restaurants i visited. 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

We were at the beach the whole day and came to the restaurant very hungry. All members of the staff were very pleasant and friendly and even made something vegetarian for 2 of us even though it wasn't written in the menu. I would recommend this place to everyone, the food is the best that we tried in Cuba.

We stoped there in our recent visit to Cuba. It was a pleasant surprise, a wonderful place to eat. The look of the place, the food quality, and not less important, the service, we're outstanding. It is a private own restaurant and the young people who run it are very friendly. The price was the best of all the meals... More

This was by far the best meal I had in Cuba. The restaurant gets points alone for the incredible and pristine vintage ambiance. The house and backyard where the tables and actual restaurant were located were so perfectly maintained and straight out of the 1950s you couldn't help but already love it. The drinks were very high quality and low... More

Staff very welcoming and attentive the whole time. Great “camarones rebozados”, the freshest we had so far in Cuba. The steak was fine but so thin that not really tasty. Good mojitos, great “home” flan with ice cream. A very good place to eat in Cienfuegos and one of the few very good restaurant experiences in Cuba. Most of the... More

Overall the food is good, little salty, little bit cold, but they have really good pizza there and the value can't be beat.
