Totally tourist trap. Creates fictitious queue outside to create illusion of demand. When your "turn" comes, the restaurant is half empty upstairs. Waiters trained to flatter guests' jewelry, hairstyles, ect, with hoopla and as a group. I got raving accolades about a fake Casio watch...More

The food is OK (ie very good for Cuban standards) and be prepared for huge portions (they do doggie bags). Mojitos are obviously good, but then we didn't find any one place in Cuba with bad mojitos. Piña coladas on the other hand are amazing...More
