fun times

fun times we had at la casa de Al. Apparently Al Pacino lived there when he was going to Varadero, so it makes it fun to eat there. I took the lobster and it was very good. Lovely time and beautiful view.

Besides, the history of the place is very appealing. We didn´t eat, though, we just went in to know the place. Anyways, food in Cuba is not that great, so......

This restaurant is located right on the beach and the food is very good.There is a replica of the old car used by Al Capone in front of the hotel. Very well kept gardens surround the place.

The food is average. Have had the same meal at a different restaurant which tasted much better and was half the price. The prices are near outrageous. Cash only. I would only recommend going if you want to say "been there, done that".

We made a city tours in Varadero and we have a stop at the casa, a must see in Varadero, the casa was build in 1920 and was in good condition. Very happy to see the casa and know more about the history of the Casa de Al.

We stopped in here for about half an hour for a few cocktails and to say we have done it. We never had a meal. The view of the beach and ocean are fabulous. The beer was cold, the Pina Colladas were expensive. I would go back just for the historical value and the view. Mike
