I'm not vegetarian but the food at this restaurant was delicious and unusual with great presentation. Everything is eco friendly, even the straws in the drinks! Also you can choose small, medium or large portions. Try the Candela cocktail (rum, ginger, orange) - a delicious aperitif! We didn't try other restaurants in Las Terrazas, but this one would be hard to beat.

El Romero is a vegetarian restaurant in the Las Terrazas community. We are not vegetarians, yet this was the best meal we had in two weeks in Cuba: the food was excellent, the service good and the setting pleasant.
Not knowing our vegetarian options, we chose the sampler menu which worked very well. We received a broad selection and the main included three different dishes which added to the variety.
Of note - if you are staying at La Moka hotel on full board, the hotel will give you a voucher to cover your food at El Romero. It is a five minute walk down the hill from the hotel.
Note #2: you are advised to book as it is popular.
Tip generously - they deserve it.

Very interesting and creative meals in a nice cafe with open cooking area friendly staff and great views. Recommend it and I'm no vegetarian.

We were on an organised dinner with a taster menu not chosen by us. The feedback was mixed with some in our party of 14 loving it and others really disliking it. However, the desserts were out of this world! I think if we could have all chosen a la carte it would have been a nicer experience. The worst was the toilet as there was a lack of water, so staff had to empty a bucket into it. There was also no water to wash your hands on the night. We originally had booked for the previous night, but received a phone call that the restaurant was shut due to a lack of water!

I forgot to write this review straight after my trip, but this place was such a good find that it deserves to be known about!

As a vegetarian on holiday in Cuba, it can be a little difficult at lunchtimes to have much more than a pretty basic spaghetti, egg and chips or beans and rice, so this made a great change!

I can't remember what we ordered and the specifics, but it was all very tasty and the mains were very large and filling. While prices were a bit more European than some places, they weren't overly expensive and no different to the places we ate at in the evenings, so for veggies definitely worth a trip (Las Terrazas is a really cool place anyway) and for non veggies visiting Las Terrazas, worth checking out if you fancy a nice lunch.
