“2 out of 3”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

We dined here 3 nights in a row. The first 2 nights the food was amazing, the last night, it was diabolical. I got the rabbit which was about 80% small bones. My friend's lobster smelled like amonia. The first two nights I had the lamb, then the steak, both of which was lovely. Great daquiris too!

“Nice meal. Casa was better...”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

This was recommended as the better of the places to eat in town. There isn't a lot of choice to be honest. Our casa had better food but this was enjoyable enough. Service could have been better.

“Standard, nothing special”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

Portions were not as big as in other places. Standard quality. I had veggie lasagne, I could not recognised the vegetables in it.

“Odd one out”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

This restaurant really stands out in Vinales as the only "European style" place. Don't go if you want Cuban food in other words. That said, the cuisine is really great, just as the service, and you really feel like two worlds clash when you sit on the terrace in front of the house, with the Vinales main street bustling with activity around you.
