We walked down to this restaurant from Casa Martha Pena. The food was delicious and the service really good. A bit more formal than some of the other places we have been to in Cienfuegos and matched by a really good meal.

Had no chance (or $) to eat here. Disappointing that real fruit juices were not part of the offering on the amazing roof terrace. Great views, incredible architecture. Great place to take photos.

Built in 1917 this amazing building is now used as a restaurant which, when our group visited, looked as though it was a popular spot for tour group dining. The architecture and décor of the building are reason enough to stop. The food was just fine...fish, meat, chicken...and plentiful. The service was quick and I had the feeling the wait... More

Poor example of predictable food served in an entirely disinterested manner. The glorious building is far and away the best part of this experience.

Amazing architecture. It is a treat to go inside the building to have lunch and listen to the Cuban music. Be sure and look around at the woodwork; it is exquisite. The food, however, is disappointing just average and not worth the prices that are charged.

Our party of eighteen people sat down to a lovely meal at this restaurant. We were offered a reasonably good selection of meat, fish and wine and we were not disappointed. Just one thing wrong, we think the waiters could have tried harder and maybe smiled now and again.

The building is of course breathtaking and we sat in what feels like a Moorish palace to eat which in itself was an experience. The staff were helpful and pleasant. The food was fairly standard by Cuban standards. We mainly went because they advertised proper potato chips on their menu and as you can't really get them anywhere, we decided... More

The palace itself is beautiful and looks like a building right out of Morocco. The woodwork is carved in intricate patterns that look amazing. My husband and I had fish for dinner and it was delicious, moist and flaky. A meal here is a special treat.
