“a real discovery!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

We found this restaurant by its business card which was given to us in the street by a guy in a strange uniform. In the evening we decided to go and check it and wow, what a surprise it was! The food was really nice, drinks perfect and the guitar players were awesome!!! Never heard anything better than their music! Thank you all for the service and everything!

“Amazing Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

We went to El Tranvia as part of our tour through Cienfuegos, Cuba and it was well worth it. We have tram cars at home in Melbourne, Australia, so it was a bit of a novelty for me to see something similar in Cuba. The food and drinks were amazing, as were the staff and service. Well worth a visit!

“Great place to eat in Cienfuegos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

While visiting Cuba had opportunity to visit El Tranvia in Cienfuegos. Best restaurant I went to in Cuba. Great fish (Kingfish, I believe) with fruit salsa. Best flan I ever had anywhere. Fun place with trolly decor. Great outside bar - felt like being in a tree house. Owner was very friendly and gracious along with his staff. Do stop there when you are in the area.
