This is advertised as Al Capone's old house, but unfortunately this is just a story to attract the tourists. Still a nice setting.

No charge to go in. The toilets in the courtyard are disgusting!!!! The attraction is the view from the rear and thast fact that it once belonged to Al Capone other than that!!

This is reported to be A Capone's rum warehouse from the American prohibition. Its situation on the beach gives a fantastic view of a stunning beach.......

fun times we had at la casa de Al. Apparently Al Pacino lived there when he was going to Varadero, so it makes it fun to eat there. I took the lobster and it was very good. Lovely time and beautiful view.

Besides, the history of the place is very appealing. We didn´t eat, though, we just went in to know the place. Anyways, food in Cuba is not that great, so......

This restaurant is located right on the beach and the food is very good.There is a replica of the old car used by Al Capone in front of the hotel. Very well kept gardens surround the place.

The food is average. Have had the same meal at a different restaurant which tasted much better and was half the price. The prices are near outrageous. Cash only. I would only recommend going if you want to say "been there, done that".
