Great food, great service, great host! The stewed lamb is to die for. I would highly recommend it. They also have some type of entertainment in the evenings and the musicians were really good.

We went to three of the highly recommended restaurants but Doña Nora was the only one who didn't disappoint us. The staff was friendly and did a good job, the life music was nice and discreet, the food tasty and the whole atmosphere quite fancy and comfortable. It's a great choice to go there!

The atmosphere was great for couples and family, 2 floors, being low season the upper floor was closed. I loved the food, being Cuban I know the flavors, The skewered shrimp were delicious, the staff was very obliging and helpful, they kept an eye on use and made us feel special. Mojitos were good, had a couple of them during... More

We read about various restaurants in Cienfuegos and decided to try out a few places. One restaurant that stood out head and shoulders above the rest was Dona Nora. The Mouthwatering Cuban food at this well-located restaurant was delicious. The restaurant is easy to find on one of the main roads and has a great balcony - or you can... More

We felt as in a coffee commercial. Music during dinner, great and beautiful personnel and pretty good Cuban food! If you are together, try to take the seat on the balcony, really romantic! A must if you are in Cienfuegos.

Place Lonely-recommended on the Paseo del Prado. Nice location, friendly staff, nice cocktails but.... very insignificant food. I chose the chicken and it was really full of onion, rope vieja was a little better but non compared to other places in Cuba. Side dish really insignificant and the salads full of vinegar. I can recommend only the bar.

The restaurant is well located and has a nice cozy feel to it. The staff were extremely friendly and efficient. The food was good by Cuban standards, but certainly nothing to write home about. If I was in town again I would definitely go and eat there and try and get a seat on the terrace.

After our trip to Cienfuegos, we decided to have dinner in the town and enjoy the city at night. We were mislead by some people in town that wanted us to go to a different venue. However in the end we did manage to the restaurant and it was worth it, the service was good and the food delicious. We... More

You will have to look carefully to find this restaurant as access is through a single door and up a flight of stairs. But persevere and you will find a great menu and superb food at reasonable prices. I had a meat dish which was faultless - in fact the only thing I could complain about was the portion size... More

The restaurant is up a very long and steep flight of stairs. It's quite crowded inside, and noisy. The night I went for dinner, they had a number of choices on the menu: pork, fish, chicken, shrimp. I chose the fish. It was well prepared and the portion was generous. It came with rice and a salad. The service was... More
