Ate here twice whilst staying in Varadero. Try and get the window seat so you can look at the sea. Food nice, and the lobster sizzler was enough for 2 to share with a side dish.

Same menu from year to year, leaves no surprises... nice to have during a trip. Even though a bit run down, still excellent food.

The restaurant has nice views (it's on the beach), you can eat there well and the prices are good (as if it wasn't in Varadero). I recommend the pasta for 3.75 CUC :)

Best Chinese food around. I find it even better than Canadian Chinese food. The portions are huge - price is very cheap.
