Indifferent attitude

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... read more

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 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

We were 4 and 4 idiots trusting LP advice I will say. It was pretty full which is usually a good sign but in this case it did not work. We had shrimps and lobster with vegetables and rice. The veggies were coming from tins, the shrimps were full of mayonnaise so impossible to tell if they were good or... More

The setting is nice and the food is cheap, but compared to the food we had in our casa, this wasn't the best. The service was okay. I'd recommend trying your casa' food first!
