Excellent food on a patio overlooking from a hilltop. Creole food at its best. Good service. 3 steep flight of stairs but worth it

It is difficult to rate a nice privately run Cuban restaurant! Do you rate it by Cuban standards or by world standards? By Cuban standards this is a very good spot to get a good tasty meal of a type you will find in almost any restaurant in town. Service will be better, ambience better but the quality of the food may or may not be any better than elsewhere. When we were there, the weather had been bad, and we were told the fishing fleet had not been out for a while. So presumably the fish was frozen. The octopus (much praised by others) certainly seemed that way and my meat was pretty tough, although the coconut sauce (a speciality of Baracoa), made it very tasty. Certainly a good, popular and well priced spot for dinner, but I wouldn't put it higher than that! I overheard a fellow guest suggesting they served bananas flambeed in rum if they wanted to pull in the punters, who were undoubtedly very fed up with the dreary range of desserts.. They seemed very dubious at the thought...

This is a three year old paladar, and unfortunately it was not listed in my guide books. The small roof terrace restaurant is up three flights of stairs. There is outdoor and indoor seating, we chose the first. We had a lovely meal. The moros y cristianos was the best I tasted in Cuba and the chicken fricasee was very good. Very attentive staff and bonuses were the good cafe con leche and the clean toilet. Definitely a place to go for a meal if you are in Baracoa.

This place was recommended by our tour guide and is was easily the best restaurant in Baracoa, and maybe the best we had on our entire Cuban trip. They have a wide variety of dishes, and the pulp (octopus) was amazing.

El Buen Sabor was recommended to us by Le Guide Routard and the recommendation was well-deserved. The food was one of the best we had in Cuba -- try the fish with coconut milk, the local specialty, and the sweet coconut dessert. And the service was certainly the best in Cuba. Our waiter, Hairo, was probably the most elegant, gentle, and proud Cuban we met on our trip. Enjoy! And do say hello!
