“Enjoyed a lovely lunch.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013 via mobile

We took a day trip into Santiago de Cuba. Our group decided to meet for lunch at El Holandes. This was a first visit for myself and repeat for some friends. The dining area is intimate and therefore a small wait required to seat our large group. The outdoor seating was available, however, too hot in the sun, then too wet once started raining.

The staff was excellent. All orders arrived correctly and in a timely fashion. Everyone enjoyed what they ordered. Portions are large. Price is perhaps a little much for Cuba, but the palador is close to many tourist attractions in a busy city neighbourhood. All within walking distance of where we needed.

I recommed trying this palador.

“Just ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

Opposite noisy jazz club. Recommended by hotel.

Food ok but nothing special.

Outside seating on verandah. Beggar kept reaching through railings while we were eating.
