The Mixed Grill was outstanding...the filet was cooked exactly as I ordered it (medium rare) and the Lobster was skewered to a pineapple...tasted as good as it looked! If you have the flan for dessert, you won't be sorry. I would definitely return here during my next trip to Varadero!

This is a fabulous place to dine. A little pricey but if you are looking for a taste of home beef well worth it. Fabulous.
