My grilled fish was so seasoned with cumin and salt that it was not edible. My friends had somewhat (not a lot) better meals but it was also nothing special. The drinks, rice and the salad was OK. The decorations is lovely. Wouldn't recommend.

We visited Dona Nora for lunch along with our 12-person People to People group. We met the owner, who shared with us his vision and the story behind his opening of this privately run restaurant. Given that we were there as a group, we were given limited choices in what we can order, so we never had a chance to... More

We had a lovely evening at this paladar: good food, good atmosphere with music and cocktails. We were six and only had to wait 5 minutes to get a table during busy evening hours. But when it's full, you have to wait a little bit to catch a server and order something!

Intimate restaurant in an upstairs location on the main drag. Efficient and friendly service with excellent food at very reasonable prices. Liked it so much, we returned the next evening. Pleasant and unobtrusive live music as well. They don't take reservations so you may have a bit of a wait. Try the rabbit and ropa veija (shredded lamb).

We ate here three times during our Cienfeugos stay. The food was great and the building is lovely. They have a roof terrace also and we had a drink up there one night whilst waiting for a table

Old fashioned, well maintained place with plenty of character. Background live guitar music adds to the experience - not too intrusive. The place is clean and the service very good. Good selection of food on the menu. We had rabbit and prawn/shrimp dishes. Both cooked well and served with the same as everywhere, rice and beans, fried plantain, shredded cabbage,... More

Doña Nora is a restaurant not to be missed in Cienguegos. It can be crowded, and you may have to wait for a table, but wait...it's worth it. The menu is large and varied, a full bar (the piña coladas are excellent...made very uniquely and artistically) and the pork, chicken and fish dishes are all wonderful, served with rice, beans,...
