“Great lobster”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

The chef puts on an entertaining show as he grills up the best lobster on the strip. Very affordable too. Nice family atmosphere, bring the kids!

“Lobsters and Photos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

I hope this is the correct name of the restaurant we went to. I believe it is.
We accidently missed lunch so we headed back to Varadero for a quick meal. The first place wanted $17 a lobster meal each, and we knew that the cave restaurant was less, so we declined, This restaurant also had a similiar price but when we were about to walk away offered us a $10 lobster meal with a little bit smaller lobster and no soup. It was totally delicious.
One other interesting aspect of the restaurant was photos they had of guests of the past. They had a picture of Pierre Elliott Trudeau with the owner, and another with Sting and his wife. Wild

“Awesome dinner, with the manager Darryl”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

My fiance and I were trying to locate another restaurant when Darryl talked us into eating at this restaurant. The experience was a highlight of our trip.

We had a wonderful meal and the manager Darryl sat with us and is VERY FUNNY. We joked and laughed for hours, we had 3 bottles of wine and two BIG dinners with teh best lobster tails ever for $55 CUC, plus tip. Great value in my opinion.

Darryl and teh staff are wonderful I could not reccomned this place more. We will be back.

Also Daryl if you read this, its "Stinky" and Ciera.

my wife and i just got back from varadero and i have to write this while still fresh on my mind.first of all you are greeted on the street by a young man dariel, he will almost beg you to come in.a very funny chap and he does not lie about the food. we each had the lobster dinner.this came with fantastic soup,salad,beans and rice with with a funky desert.we were given one and a half lobster tail weighing approx 1lb, cooked to perfection.all of this for 14cuc.met a great lady who was born in my wifes hometown who has lived on her boat for 11 years. she has told us to look her up next time we are in town. needless to say i was very impressed with the overall experience and will be back more than once on our next trip.
