“On The Beach”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

We'd eaten here a few years back and enjoyed the lobster. This time I just stopped by to enjoy the cold beer in a cold glass and the view. You're right on the beach and the location creates a wonderful ambience.

“Great location, decent food”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

Decent snack & food joint in Varadero. With its great location right on the sandy beach this place is perfect for having your snacks and sunset-beers. And it´s cheep! A local beer (Cristal or Bucanero on a bottle) costs 1 cuc (while in most other bars and restaurants in Cuba they cost 1,5 or even 2 cuc).

“It was ok.”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

Added this spot to my 'must try' list, and wasn't impressed enough to go back.
Service was friendly enough, slower than other places. I ordered the Filet with mushroom sauce, and although that sauce was to die for, I wasn't struck on the meat, fries, rice, dab of salad on the plate.
People do smoke while you are having your meal, and under the main pavilion it was not as airy as you'd have thought/hoped. For that reason alone, I never stuck around for dessert or coffee.

“Great view terribley slow service”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

Cool little beach bar in downtown varadero. The view and beach is beautiful there, but the service is so damn slow. Drink prices of 50cents a coke, a buck a beer or water, 2 bucks for a cocktail. They also have good cheap food, including plantain fries.

“One of the best”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

I go to this place at least once, on every visit. This is a very down to earth place along the main street. Breakfast is pretty fast and the price is right for Varadero.
Try avoiding the place right at lunch time as many locals have their lunch there and this creats long waits.
Over all, this is a clean and reasonably priced joint. Ohhh they serve good coffee!
