Good food with fabulous lobster. Great value. In house Cuban band somewhat limited though Gets a bit monotonous as they only seem to know two songs!

Food was good, had shrimp in a 'spicy' sauce which wasn't spicy at all but still nice. The live band playing were very good, we even bought their cd. What let it down was the super slow service, even by Cuban standards and it wasn't even busy. Apart from that, worth a try.

We had dinner here on one of our day trips into Varadero. Food was excellent and plentiful. Right on the main drag through Varadero. Only problem here are the musicians that come around to the tables and play music expecting tips. A bit annoying so we went elsewhere the next evening we were in town

The last time I was here I spoke about some issues I had. I said they told me they had no chicken or pork. They tried to overcharge me... Well I was totally prepared for the same story about having no chicken or pork which are the cheapest things on the menu. They told me the exact same thing. Every... More
