I was afraid to go there, but food was actually very good. Morros y cristianos one of best I get in Varadero.. Fish and shrimps also very good. Portions are big enough, so think twice if you want appetizers before :) Prices: 5,50 frish, 1,10-1,50 beer. I tried also lobster, was good. Choose fried viandas not cooked ;)

Good food, especially the meat and fish dishes. Rather inexpensive. The service is not extremely friendly but quick and efficient.

We went there because the nearby paladar was closed on Monday. Prices are a bit below average, but so is the service. Would not go there again.

We ate here a few times because it was some of the most reasonably priced and freshest food we had. Beers are cold, rum is good. Lemonades are also very good. Had the shrimp, chicken, soups, congri and all were very good. Only the steak was a bit tough. Plates are 4-7 CUC with bigger seafood plates (shareable) being around... More

I ordered Seafood combination (Mariskas), it was literally the best meal in Varadero for quality and price 17 CUC (US$18). Pity I didn't make a picture - I just enjoyed. Then I took coffee and dessert tasting trio, my Got, it was absolutely amazing cream caramel and French toast soaked on syrup. My husband enjoyed the shrimp cocktail for 2.50... More

Service was good, waitress was very friendly. Open air restaurant along the busy street so there was a lot of action going on. With that came several people coming in to use the restaurant washroom facilities which were partial there and not that clean. Food was good and delicious. Could use some tender loving care. Loved the roof design from... More

We did a tour of Varadero and this place was recommended as one of the best restaurants on the peninsula. We even read the local reviews who claimed this to be the number 1 restaurant there. I had a typical cuban pork meal with rice and found the pork satisfying but it was not as good as I had at... More
