Two years ago I found this restaurant on Tripadvisor and decided to visit on my trip to Holguin. I was actually looking for somewhere to have a wedding dinner. The hotel arranged for a cab to the restaurant and I knew instantly this was the atmosphere I was looking for...and the food sealed the deal! When I asked to speak... More

As a couple we were the only ones here besides the parrot. We started off with a cold bottle of Cristal. Then we had a very large salad consisting of sliced tomatoes, lettuce, cabbage, cucumbers, and shredded squash with oil and vinegar. We both had the grilled shrimp which were not really grilled but simmered in a creole sauce I... More

Went with 6 others last Friday for dinner. All of us where blown away by the entire meal and setting. They even customized some of our meals (breaded shrimp vs. other forms). The prices of the meals average 10 CUC and the amount served, lets just say, don't eat anything else that day if you plan on finishing your meal.... More

This Local Paladare - a private restaurant in Guardalavaca is a MUST DO, do not miss a trip off the resort to eat at this fantastic restaurant. A cab ride costs $10 CUC, return trip, and we left from Club Amigo Atlántico, which was a 5 minute ride. I wanted to go somewhere different and off the resort to eat... More

Friends of ours had been to Dona Barbara Restaurant in Cuatro Camino, just 10 min from Guardalavaca in January and Highly recommended it. On my last visit to Guardalavaca April 2012 myself and 13 of my friends made reservations Since we were such a large group we decided to make arrangements, but you can drop in for lunch or dinner....
