The food is excellent, desert is great, as it is the rates. The staff is friendly. So it is a very good value for money place. My only not so good remark is the slow service. For us was ok because we were in no hurry but if you are staying in the city just 1 night...

Ok, let me start by explaining that "Arros con pollo a la chorrera" is a very Cuban dish that was born many centuries ago out of necessity and today is an elegant dish in any Cuban restaurant. The dish is prepared right after it's been ordered, so it's as fresh as can be. Very succulent and beautiful with a plethora... More

A very small and intimate restaurant, but with amazing food. My friend and I couldn't even finish it, there was so much of it :)

We drank mojitos all across Cuba for two weeks and these were the best! Food and service was also great. Not so great when the torrential rain outside started flooding the restaurant, but we didn't mind, we ordered another drink!

Very busy bustling restaurant with a young and keen staff doing their best to keep everyone happy! We were served by Jorgito and Juan Pablo who kept us entertained throughout. Menu was quite extensive, something for everyone.

I went to this restaurant as part of a group tour. It has a very extensive menu, but I ended up settling on the pineapple chicken dish which hit the spot (and on top of that, it was a lot of food). It came with a variety of typical Cuban sides and some delicious plantain chips. I also got a... More

It was recommended by my lady at my Casa Particular in Cienfuegos, the place have no sign on the street and you can literally miss it if you don't pay attention, but when you push the door you enter in a restaurant from a movie, all the people working there are nice and well dressed, the atmosphere is relaxing and...

This is a local restaurant where you have to knock the door to be let in to a lovely room, with lovely decor, good service and the best meal we had in all of Cuba. Near the end of the esplanade it is good for starting your walk or ending it there. Highly recommend it.

The service was very poor. It seemed to us that the waiters weren't interested in taking our order. We were sitting next to the wine shelf and they fetched wine just above my head without excusing or saying anything at all. The prices appeared high to us compared with other restaurants and when we asked the table next to us... More

In comparison with the average of the restaurant I experienced in Cuba this place is rather good but definitively not so good as the ranking is showing. The space is small and the second room very dark and hot. The food is nothing more and nothing less than the standard you can get in all Cuban restaurants.
