“Read about it, found it, enjoyed it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

We recognized the name from trip advisor on one of our walks…as based on the reviews i was interested in trying it out.
Nice place excellent value.
Stopped for dinner on our walk back to our resort.
Was pretty busy however we were able to get a seat outside.

Service was good, people were friendly. Fruit, Bread, Soup, Lobster, Desert, 4 Rums, 2 Pinacoladas. No long waits for courses and or drinks. With a good tip i think it was $41 for the 2 of us

They had a guy there who drew us for 3 CUC and we paid a guitar guy a few bucks to play his Classical guitar for a while. Older guy with a very polished singing voice.

Overall even though my wife is not a big fan of Lobster, she enjoyed it.
Wasn't the best Lobster I've had in the World, however it was Very Good. We almost went a 2nd time, and i would recommend it easily.

Enjoy, Cheers

“The service, the food, and the prices are excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2013

I loved the grilled lobster here! There are a few cats running around the patio area, which are good for entertainment while you wait for your mouthwatering dinner to be grilled!

“Five star in Varadero? Of course!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

If you want to eat the best langostina, it's the place, period! Everything is perfect in this place, in this tourist trap (Varadero). I goes two times in my week, and it was the same experience both night. A must!!!
