Description: The lobster was very good here.....price was only $15.00 CUC. The filet mignon was also good here. This restaurant is right across the street from Josone Park in Varadero.

We ordered the garlic shrimp, which was very salty. Filet mignon that was not filet mignon. Ordered it medium rare and both steaks were well done. We got one drink for the 2.5 hours we were there because we could not get our servers attention. We would try get a drink from another server and they would tell us they would let our server know. Which we never saw our waiter until he brought us our bill.

There were 10 of us in our party, we had lobster dinner, roasted chicken and pork steak dinners, a bottle of wine, a few bottles of beer and a few mixed drinks. Six of us had dessert. So so good and our total bill was $90 peso. Total. Crazy. We liked it so much we went back a second time. Cubans can cook!! Don't believe the rumors otherwise.

This restaurant was recommended to me by a friend who had just returned from varadero... I loved the atmosphere, the service was good although the waiter forgot to bring me water or any drink for that matter... But the lobster was well worth the lack of drink! It was absolutely delicious! Grilled to perfection and dressed in garlic butter... I think I will have dreams about it!!

Pleasant service, nice atmosphere. Food was great, huge portions, musical talent very good but not pushy when playing at your table.
