I came here with my fiancé for drinks in the evening after dinner. It turns into quite a cool bar with live salsa bands. The drinks were standard, the service was fine, but the atmosphere was pretty cool, as people were dancing and having a good time.

The restaurant looks lovely on the outside, but the waitstaff are largely indifferent. Service is much slower compared to other restaurants around town, and the food is unremarkable if relatively inexpensive. The fried chicken was halfway decent but the soup and tortillas were completely bland. Stick with a meal at your casa or try one of the other restaurants on... More

We had tuna fish fillet (was a little bit dry) and chicken with rice and veg. Huge portions, could not even finish it, nice fresh juice. Enjoyed sitting on the terrace and just watching life goes by. Excellent customer service, we would go back again.

We spent most of our afternoons in this place, eating the sandwiches, drinking beers and mojitos, talking to the owner and watching the World Cup. The food was lovely, beer cold and conversations very pleasant. It's a great place to watch the world go by. Highly recommended!

A great spot to sit for the afternoon and watch life pass by while sipping a cold drink. We stopped here for some respite from the heat when we went for a hike from the town up to the Los Jazmines lookout. It was a great spot to sit, relax and recover from the heat. We had a great afternoon... More

Ate here with my Cuban wife and Cuban friends of ours a few days after we got married. I was treating to dinner. The place is on the main drag and was really a last resort option since it was late. The food was unremarkable and nothing special at all... your average Cuban fare... chicken or pork with rice and... More

We enjoyed a great meat at Paladar La Colonial, which is on the main street in Vinales. My husband had a lobster en salsa that was one of his favourite meals in Cuba. It was so delicious he ordered the same thing at La Casa de Don Tomas—a much fancier venue—but the quality wasn’t as good as at La Colonial.... More

When we arrived in Vinales we stopped at the La Colonial for lunch and a mojito. We ended up staying all afternoon. The host is really great and speaks fluent german. The food is fresh and the portions are very good. We went back there 4 more times during our stay in Vinales. Upon request he even serves you breakfast,... More
