Cannot go wrong here. Amazing drinks Soups were great both times Lobster tails cooked over a fire pit We go every trip to varadero. They have updated washrooms and great service. Even the locals eat there. That tells you something.

In Cuba, you usually hear that the restaurants are just ok because it's communist and the people that work in a restaurant don't care about the food or what you order (yep that happened often). This place on the other hand is pretty fantastic; Food is great and the workers are friendly. Everything from the street churros to the seafood... More

Excellent food, excellent price, excellent service for 15 pesos. Ate the Lobster, which came with a nice soup, rice, vegetables, sweet potatoes and a salad.

I go to Casa del Chef every visit - usually twice per year and sometimes more than once per trip. The bbq lobster is delicious, as is the chicken, the rice and blackbeans and the blackbean soup. One particular waitress remembers me all the time and I am sure appreciates the new faces I bring with me.

I've been to La Casa del Chef for a dinner with my girlfriend during our days in Varadero. In the beginning we were a bit doubtful because we were the only customers of the restaurant and it appears a bit sad.... anyway, in the end we've eaten two huge lobsters well cooked and combined with a lot of good side-dishes...
