this is my second time and again not disappointed. I have found that in Cuba if you want to get great food eat what the locals do. As for value i don't think you can beat it soup bread salad main and a drink for under 20CUC

La Campana - in Josone Park. - This was our favorite meal in Varadero. We had a very tasy Cuban dish, and also the shrimp dish was very good (lots of shrimp!). Our meals came with soup, bread, salad, rice and beans. All of it was delicious. We ate outside on the verandah and it was a very pleasant atmosphere.... More

For 15 CUC, I had a full meal: soup, salad, 1/2 grilled cuban lobster ( delicious!), rica and beans, dessert ( coconut type of flan), coffee and a glass of wine. The service was excellent and the food fresh and delicious! It is a bit expensive for Cuba's standards but... More

The restaurant is a long walk into the middle of the park, but at least it was nice and quiet. We had steak and lobster, soup, a drink, dessert and coffee for 20 CUC. The service was fast, too fast in my mind, as we like to enjoy a drink beforehand, and a smoke between courses, so make sure you... More

This restaurant is one in what was a guesthouse in a lodge motif on the estate of Onelia Mendez and Jose Iturrioz a leading businessman of Cardenas which was confiscated during the Revolution and...

LaCampana is a neat little restaurant in a stone cottage-like building tucked atop the hill in Josone Park with a very rustic feel and delicious food. My wife and I stopped here for lunch during a day-walk in Varadero and we will definitely be repeat customers. I had the "Cuban Food" option which featured two types of shredded beef (one... More

Ordered the lobster tail special that the two fellows advertising at the front of the park recommended. The meal was 'ok. Lobster was so overdone that I couldn't peel the tail out of the shell. Canned green beans on the side, but excellent beans and rice... until I found a staple (!) in my rice! It looked like a staple-gun... More
