Well appointed and located off the main street. Calm and away from gasoline fumes. Good cocktails, nice food. Nice music. Service was fast at lunch and slow at dinner

We only ate olives! So can't comment on the food. But we did enjoy sitting quietly upstairs on a rainy afternoon imbibing in a very good quality vino tinto. It is a large establishment that has the vibe of not caring so much for its clientele.

The place looks attractive and cared for, so we gave it a go. Menu, as usual, was simple but enough choice for us. Friendly service and an accompanying musical set from a five-piece band that was better than the average. We even bought the cd!! There are lots of eating choices in Vinales and this one didn't disappoint.

Although the open layout of this colonial building is quite nice, both service and food are poor. And like everywhere in this tourist trap of Vinales, they charge you US/European prices. Viva CAPITALISM!

We went here several times to drink the cocktail of the house called "Trapiche" ( Spanish for "a mill to crush sugar cane"). This delicious cocktail consists of a mix of pineapple juice, honey, crushed ice and rum. The cocktail wasn't that big, but very delicious and very affordable (so we drank multiple glasses to compensate for the size). The... More

Well Cuban state run service is notorious but other than that one cannot complain. Food was delicious. House coctail wasn't amazing but sitting on the top Veranda watching the sun go down it didn't matter at all.

We had a lunch here on one of our days in Vinales, the place was relatively empty on the day but yet all the staff was watching tv and we had to wait ages for any service. But most importantly, the food was very average, there were many other restaurants in Vinales offering better food for less money. It is... More

It's ok here, but nothing special. Standard Cuban fare on offer from a state run restaurant. It looks really good and clean but food doesn't deliver, but staff are friendly and helpful. We followed our agents, Rickshaws, recommendation, but it wasn't deserved. Other travellers we met recommended the tapas bar, which was always busy. Our Casa owners recommended the yellow... More

We were a group of 8 so the restaurant seated us upstairs pretty much on our own. It was like having a private dining room. The food was okay, pretty standard fare for Cuba. I had a paella which was edible and a number of us had creme caramel for desert which was a strange texture but again quite edible.... More
