“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2012

A staff member from our hotel recommended this restaurant to us. It's off the strip, about a 5 minute walk through a residential area in Veradero. This affluent community has converted one of it's old homes into this great restaurant. It has both inside and outside seating areas, the staff is wonderfully friendly, and the chef cooks in an old-school domestic kitchen - fitting with the house. During the one week we were in Cuba, we visited this restaurant twice. Both times we ordered the Lobster specials - 2 lobster tails, 2 salads, 2 alcoholic drinks (mohitos), 2 coffees, and 2 desserts = $44 CUC (tax/tip included). Besides the amazing price, one of the best aspects is that it's out-of-the-way and therefore less busy. We were able to have a cozy dinner in the heart of Veradero! Awesome!

“Brilliant Spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2012

Lovely restaurant. Brought here by taxi man. Off the main street so you would have trouble finding this gem.. Myself and my wife both had lobster.. 20 euro for 2 courses and cocktail which is good for Cuba. Cocktails were lovely as well.. Highly recommend it..

“Excellent food with one of the top chef of Varadero Robertico”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

This a new restaurant in Varadero in one of the must exclusive residential areas located at Calle 59 and 3 ra ave. It is very small family restaurant, the food is to park with the top restaurants in Europe, ask for Robertico the chef to make you a paella with seafood.

All the best,
Yordy and family Cruz

“Wonderful ambience, attentive staff and excellent food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

A cab driver recommended this restaurant to us. It was October 25, 2012 and Hurricane Sandy was wrecking havoc on Cuba when we decided to go out for dinner. The doorman at Waco's Club came to the cab with a huge umbrella to guide us to the restaurant doors so we did not get wet.
This restaurant is a converted house and the decor is absolutely lovely. There are an assortment of meal deals (for lack of a better word) fish, lobster, lobster and shrimp and a few others I cannot remember. The deal was 20 pesos and included a drink of your choice, salad, dessert and the main course. There were other entrees to chose from - not just the meal deals. I did see filet mignon and pork chops on the menu. We chose lobster and shrimp and another guest at our table chose the fish. All the meals were outstanding. We were also given little garlic buns with real butter before we received our main course. The waiter was attentive but not intrusive and everyone was so polite. We could tell they wanted us to have a good time at their restaurant and we did!
It was so good we went back the next night and ordered the same meal but had a different desert - there are three deserts to choose from.
You will not be disappointed should you choose Waco's Club. The dining area is small so you may wish to make reservations 045-61-2126 or cell 01 529-71408 open 12 - 10 pm

“Excellent food in a small restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

We were recommended to this restaurant by a local person. The restaurant is off the beaten track in a nice area in Varadero. It is a what seems to be a house that has been converted into a very nice clean restaurant. Inside the restaurant it only has a few tables and one or two tables in the garden. Staff are very pleasant. The food is very good (recommend the Lobster) the presentation of the food is on par with many top restaurants in the UK. The price of the meals is also very reasonable, and the service is very attentive. All in all a very pleasant atmosphere. I also noted that it is used by the local people for night out.
