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

Great experience here... The food and service was great and it was also kind of cool to eat in a place that "Al Capone visited during the prohibition"... My buddy and I both had the Filet Mignon and thought it was awesome... (Way better than any of the food at our resort!) Overall, no complaints!

For starters im not sure why there's so much arguing about whether it belonged to al.. When we went nobody claimed that it did. The sign in the front says "this building was built in the 20s as a warehouse to store alcohol and cigars during prohibition. Al Capone visited here at the End of that decade" That aside.. The...
