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

For a government owned restaurant, Don Thomas does a very good job with good - if predictable food in wonderful surroundings in an old colonial house.

We came across Don Tomas whilst exploring Vinales and as the house looks beautiful, and there was an excellent band we thought it would be perfect for dinner. We were left waiting for a quite a while and the service wasn't great but they were friendly when arrived. Unfortunately the food was the worst I had during our trip in... More

We travelled around Cub and spent 3 nights in Vinales eating & drinking at several locations. I fancied this one the first night but we ended up going elsewhere. The last night we met friends, and some of their friends so there was a few of us. They had heard good things about Don Tomas so we booked for 7pm.... 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.

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
