“wonderful surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2014

our guide in our '55 Chev took us for a late lunch after our half day of touring in the Mantanzas area - down a side street on the outskirts of the city and across the street from a gas station we were not expecting the fabulous experience that we did enjoy -the backyard of a small house that was right on the bay held six tables and most had sun canopies for shade - lovely service, first class food (all three courses) and a chef who visited our table after the meal to chat - this was a delight from start to finish and so unexpected

“Lunch with Alejandro of Cuban Tour Compass”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014

Alejandro suggested Frenesi BBQ on our recent tour of Matanzas. It was a wonderful suggestion. The restaurant overlooks Matanzas Bay and sitting outside, even on a windy day, made for a delightful lunch. I think the cost for a three course dinner was around $15 CCP. I had coconut shrimp for an appetizer, grilled garfish for main dish, and lovely dessert. It was the best meal of our week and the chef had no problem with my gluten intolerance and knew which items were safe for me to eat.

“Best Meal of Our Entire Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2013

My wife and I had lunch at Frenesi during a recent trip to Cuba at the recommendation of our taxi driver which turned out to be the best meal of our entire vacation. It's a little hard to find and from the front appears to be a very unassuming home.Walk to the back and you enter a beautiful seaside terrace. Seating is small with only 6 or 8 tables, most with shade coverage.The staff was very attentive and spoke varying degrees of english and ordering was not an issue. We ordered from the well varied set lunch menu. Lunch consisted of fresh juice, coconut shrimp with a mango salsa, crusted grill tuna and black beans and rice and finished off with a flan and ice-cream dessert. Toss in a couple of cold cerveza's and you have a great meal even by North American standards. Lunch prices were 15 CUC per person all in. Consider a stop here if you are doing day trips to the caves near Matanzas or on your way to Havana.
