“Nice food but desperately slow service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2012

We visited this restaurant as a lunch stop on a Saga tour of Cuba. The variety of meals on offer was good and we plumped for the beef stew which was absolutely delicious. The theme of the place was black slavery in Cuba and the entertainment was on a similar theme. It was so loud it was unbeleivable and it just went on and on and on with hone guy jumping about like a cat on a hot tin roof seemingly forever. Our group was 38 people and the restaurant couldn't cope with the numbers. The meal and drinks took almost 2 hours. I have no doubt that had we gone in as foursome it would have taken a lot less so if there is a big group in give it a miss otherwise enjoy the excellent food

“Good resturant for the Santiago standard!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2012

Located 10 min walk out the downtown, it's worth walking! The interior of the restaurant has a nice atmosphere, it looks like an old pirates saloon. Waitresses looks bored and slow, if you need attention just keep shaking your hand in the air. Portions are really huge and menù is well equipped. Try the meat stew, it's a must! Prices are low compared to other places in Santiago.
