Great food

Nice little place in the middle of Cienfuegos. The food is good and the staff is friendly. Don't forget to order the banana chips!

Definitely the best meal we had in Cuba! The restaurant is a little off the beaten track, but well worth the effort to find it. Our waiter, Castillo, recommended the day's special, grilled fish, and the "best" mojitos in Cuba. With out a doubt, the fish (described as "like snapper") was delicious, as were the sides of salad, banana chips... More

This restaurant impressed us very much although the street of it's location will not impress you much. The service is impeccable and the food is incredibly fresh and tasty. Try the fish of the day and definitely try their Mojito because it's the 2nd best we've tried after the one at Hotel Nacional in Havana. Paladar Ache is one of... More

We were in Cienfuegos for a few days and saw this restaurant on Tripadvisor. A group of 12 of us went there for dinner. This was possibly the best meal we had in Cuba. The service was outstanding. I was told that they made the best Mojito in Cuba so I tried one. They were correct -all the ones I... More

We had our best shrimp dish here and one of the best mojitos as well. Also the lobster is very good. The service is great and everybody speaks English - special thanks go to Jack and Evelio for professional yet fun service and good salsa tips! It might be a bit of a walk from the center and maybe a... More

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
