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

Should you visit the city of Vinales in the Province of Pinar del Rio on Cuba, avoid visiting the restaurant Don Tomaso's. It is in the western part of Vinales centre, in a two-storied colonial building. The house is a replica, very beautiful, built in tree and painted blue and white. It looks nice and inviting, built as a copy... More

We definitely got tricked into this place. It looks so cute from the outside and both of the times we were passing by there was a live band playing, so we decided to go in. The prices looked a bit suspicious as well (pretty cheap) but it was our first night eating outside a case in Vinales so we though... More
