Good food and very friendly staff. We had paella which was very good. Also tried some shrimps. Very tasty and fresh.

This place stands out as one of the best places we have eaten in Cuba, in more than 2 weeks of travelling. Good and fast service, excellent food, and huge portions. Plus: not expensive. LP recommends it strongly, and I understand why! I suggest the...vegetarian paella - so tasty, and enough for 2 people!More

Maybe I ordered the wrong food for this place...maybe fish is not their specialty. It was tasty but overcooked. The service was good.

La Mampara, is one of the most famous restaurant in Cienfuegos, good food, fair prices, and quick service.

We went here for dinner one night and then we ate here all remaining time in Cienfuegos. The food is very good for the price, and there is many choices including veggie friendly. I do strongly recommend coming here, for the food but also for...the service which is fast considering mean times in Cuba (generally 30 mins, here around 10 mins depending on what you ask). Now, consider cuban people eat here, and the nice prices, so don't expect high level cooking that some picky persons may expect, but for cuba, and even at home, I would consider it very good and a very nice quality/price ratioMore

Very nice place in the ugliest street in the world. Look out for the service. Girls are very nice but completely don't understand English. Even a single word so don't be surprised if you get something completely different than the order was about. Food: vegetarian...food is some kind of a mistake. They serve overlefts from non vegetarian meals or some waste? I'm not sure but this was absolutely terrible. I have seen other customers leaving the "meal" without having finished. The chicken is ok but the chicken in Cuba is like a national food so no achievements in this areaMore

Food and drinks are on point. We got the chicken soup, lasagna and paella. Delicious. The owners are friendly. We(the tour group I was with) bumped into them when we were on our way to Cienfuegos. They were were wearing all black leather and travelling...on their motorcycles. After we checked into our casas, we arrived at their restaurant. Two restaurant staff greeted us only soon to realize it was the biker couple!! We could hardly recognize them without their piercings, black leather, hairdo and their motorcycles. The husband works in the kitchen and the wife front-of-house. Seems like lots of interesting people have visited the restaurant. There were lots of framed pictures of the owners with their special guests. I forgot to take photos of my food! How unlike me. I guess I was too hungry.More

To be honest the food was not that good but the service was excellent. The waitresses were really sweet and changed our order when we complained that we didn’t like it. They seemed honestly concerned that we didn’t like our food. We got to meet...the owner and talk to her for awhile.More

Oh dear. I had to really check that this was the place that disappointed us so much, as so many of the reviews are positive. I ordered paella and my wife ordered grilled shrimps. My paella arrived and looked like rice with a few prawns...sprinkled on top - ok, I thought, we are not in Spain, so do not expect paella to look like ones you've had before. It tasted of a mix of paella and curry, like 'curried paella'. My wife's grilled prawns arrived; these prawns have never seen a grill, in fact they were the furthest thing from grilled prawns that we were expecting. They had no heads, body or legs, and looked like anaemic 'undressed' prawns which had been boiled rather than grilled. So disappointed that I felt compelled to write this review.More
