We had dinner here twice during out stay in Vinales. The place is nice and has a big garden where usually there are musicians playing. We had lobster once and it was good but the day after I had their special "rice plate with everything" and it was not good...it's presented like their best place but honestly the rest of... More

Went there for dinner. The building is very big and nice. Sat on the outside veranda. The atmosphere was great but the staff was disinterest and the food was not so good. There are much better places to eat in vinales. Wouldn't go back

Beautiful old house & a lovely setting, serenaded by the band - shame the food wasn't a bit better ! Cocktails were good however.

Ate here on the recommendation of our casa owner. Wonderful little find - friendly staff, good sizeable dinners and cheap wine (very unique for Cuba). Close to the casa for our walk home too. We would recommend sitting outside on the balcony on the top floor. We visited in December 2013. They also had a band come which was wonderful... More

In spite of some pretty damning reviews, which we only read after we had gone there, our evening was pleasant on all fronts. Maybe the forthright comments have stirred things up for the better! With a setting like this jewel of a colonial house, expectations are understandably high. Our food was very good indeed, the fish was mild, with a... More

This place appears to be trading off past glories. It's certainly a beautiful setting, but that's where the experience stops - surly staff, disinterested service, and really mediocre food. I naively tried the house special, which was much like a Monday Night Stir-Fry you might throw together at home if you had some leftover rice and meat. I had to... More

We went to this restaurant as it was recommended in our travel guide. The food was very poor, the flan wasn't even home made and came from the microwave - the speciallity of the house paella wasn't much beter. However more important is that one of the waiters arranged a taxi for us (a friend of him) as he 'didn't... More

Beautiful wooden house, simply and nicely decorated, nice atmosphere. We had the chance of having a nice group playing music during the dinner (played with heart, not only for tips) on the 1st floor balcony. Food was just ok, nothing special. The meal speciality suggested in Lonely Planet was disappointing. If this is one of the best restaurants in Viñales... More
