Recommend this place for a quick lunch, service is fast, food is tasty, no complaints. I would visit this place again, was it spectacular? No, but satisfying.

If you are staying in central Varadero, you should stop here for cheap cold drinks. Good prices and a great people watching venue.

Truly excellent service at this nice restaurant off the beach. Lovely breeze and awesome mojitos. Truly a very nice place to stop for lunch while shopping. We went back twice just because the waiter was so friendly and service was good.

We enjoyed a lovely lunch of shrimp is garlic and butter. Enjoyed the music and the rum drinks. Wonderful friendly staff, reasonable priced. Enjoyed writing our names on the wall. Felt like we left a little of us in Cuba.

I did not enjoy the food here at all. I ordered the shredded beef with creole sauce and it tasted awful. almost like manure, and the taste wasn't too far off either. My daughter said it smelt like the horses did. Out of respect I tried to eat as much as I could since the cook was right beside us,... More

I will always remember the first time I eat here (I was a child) because all the signatures on the wall, I stop to read all that I could :) This is an imitation of “La Bodeguita del Medio” in Old Havana. Last time I order chicken and was delicious.... More

We returned to this restaurant last Thursday and were as delighted with it as the first time. Ordered the seafood paella and the grilled shrimp with sauce. Had wonderful garlic buns while we waited and were not disappointed with the meal when it came. A good size for both and full when done. Once again bathrooms were spotless. Since the... More
