“Good but empty”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

Apart from us (2) there were only two other guests. So the band played for us - too much for comfort. Anyhow, seated behind the restaurant on the garden veranda it is quite nice. Food is good, but lacking the finer touch. Wine is fine. A safe choice.

“Pretty and good”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

A good restaurant in a very picturesque building.

We were the first in for the evening and sat on the upstairs balcony to watch the passers by in the main street. The service was friendly and the food was good (especially the house speciality, paella).

“Don't go.”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

During our whole stay in Cuba, we had dinner in our casa half of the time and the other half went out for dinner. Don Tomas was the only place we tried in Vinales and we were really disappointed. Even though the house and its garden would lead you to believe it'll be a good restaurant, we really did not enjoy our meal. I had fish (safest option in Cuba) and it was nothing special. My friends tried the chicken but it was very dry and really not good.

There aren't many other options in Vinales but I would be surprised if you can find worse than this.

“Possibly best in town”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

Excellent fish. Service was brisk and efficient. Menu slightly more varied than usual Cuban fare (but not much ;-) ) and well cooked. Seemed to be packed with bus tour so we were on the balcony. Good music that night
