We expected this to be an 'open house' and literally expected to be dining in someone's kitchen.
We were very surprised to find a beautiful restaurant with the most Cuban feel we had encountered in Varadero. Lovely waiter, silver service, wonderful food (we had the BBQ special for 2 and could not believe how much food was put in front of us) and not expensive at all. Would definately recommend it to others.

As others have posted, we were approached by a well spoken polite gentleman while wandering around Varadero. I soon recalled the name of the and the reviews I had read here on TA about the place and asked him to lead the way! He gave us a little history tour on our short walk to Waco's Club about the neighborhood and we soon found ourselves standing in front of a well cared for private home.

We were lead inside to the patio and were greeted by our waiter, Juan Carlos. We had a great discussion and he was very pleased to hear that I had read about Waco's Club from TA. We ordered our drinks, went over the menu and decided on the Chef's Suggestion Tasting Platter. A platter for two with lobster, steak, shrimp, chicken, a whole grilled fish, potatoes, veggies and a bottle of wine. When we told Juan Carlos we didn't drink, he told us we could take the wine with us!

We were not disappointed at all with the meal, it was the best food we had eaten during our stay in Cuba and some of the best chicken we've eaten anywhere. The food is traditional Cuban food, well seasoned, cooked well and a very reasonably priced. We had great conversations with other guests and with Juan Carlos who speaks English very well. The house is cheerfully decorated, bright, airy and very clean. After dinner we strolled back up to the main road where a live band was playing at The Beatles Club, was a nice ending to a great evening.

We highly recommend this welcoming little place to anyone visiting Varadero. Thanks to the Waco's Club for the best meal we had in Cuba!

There is nothing to dislike about this restaurant. The food and service we received was EXCELLENT. Make sure you try the Fillet Mignon with mushroom sauce.

We would never have found this place if it wasn't for Ernesto, a travel guide in Varadero. We told him we wanted the best seafood in Varadero and that is exactly what we got. The food was amazing and reasonably priced. In fact it was so good we went again the night before we left. The service is incredible from the moment you step foot on the property. Clean and very well managed. This is a must when you visit Varadero.
