Delicious, Home-Style Fare

If you're craving comfort food, head to Don Tomas. Set is a quaint building, it offers up a variety of what it claims is Cuban food. The pollo asado and the house special mixed rice in a ceramic bowl are both good choices. The chicken soup also makes a delicious appetizer. There is a good selection... read more

A very attractive casa serving good, reasonably priced, food. The upper balcony makes a relaxing setting to eat whilst watching the locals go by, although the interior is also attractive.. Not amazing food but certainly a pleasant experience.

Be sure to stop in here while visiting the historic valley. Wonderful food and service! Built in 1822, it's an architectural gem. And our waiter spoke perfect english!!

Great food, speciality of the house cocktail worth a try. The restaurant and facilities are well maintained. We were lucky to be there when the flowers were out in full bloom. Glorious orange archway to the bathrooms. Music played while we ate our lunch.

This was our first dining experience in Vinales and I was glad that it only got better because this place was just barely okay. The attitude when we arrived was as if we were a inconvenience to them. The food was the worst we had in Vinales, it wasn't terrible just the worst we had. The review before this stated... More

This is one of the very few places to dine in Vinales. The other options I am aware of are a pizza place and of course a dinner from your casa particular who are always glad to get a few extra Convertible Pesos from you whereever possible. The night we went there was live music on the terrace, and they... More

Apparently the building blew down and was reconstructed in 2008. A big place with plenty of tables and a band playing. I had the house special which the Dorling Kindersley guide said was a " a weighty combination of meats and rice - not for the faint hearted" . That is a nonsense description. It was very easy to finish... More

I was in Cuba for 10 days and I can easily say this was my only bad meal. We again went because of a Frommer's review and that it has probably the nicest looking exterior. My main dish was fine but just a number of little things made this a confusing experience. We paid for the bread. I'm not sure... More

We were taken here for dinner by our tour guide. I understand it is the only state run restaurant in Vinales, so they have got lots of competition from the paladares. The food was a bit better than most of the other state run restaurants we tried in Cuba, but not great. It was a set menu with a rice... More
