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!

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

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
