Came here for lunch 3 times during my stay in Varadero. The steaks they make are top notch quality, the cheapest steak there cost 12CUC yet tasted significantly better than a steak twice that price back home.

This was hands down the best restaurant we visited in Varadero, their steaks are simply delicious,, and their seafood amazing. Their staff is very professional and courteous, The best part is that we had a fancy steak dinner, without the fancy steakhouse price.

Last year We ate at El Rancho twice and it was amazing but thought Id try something new. Loved the outdoor patio and nice breeze. The service was fairly good. We went here... More

Watching the old cars go by was enjoyable. The atmosphere was great, the place was clean, and was more upscale than anything else we experienced in Cuba (It would be casual... More

We ate here a couple of times during our stay in varadero as a change from the all inclusive in the hotel. We had the same thing both times. I had the sea food platter and my husband had T-bone steak. Both excellent. Mojitos are the best in Cuba. Service very good.
