The food and staff at the La Colonial are outstanding. The menu features items that are original to Baracoa beautifully presented and served. It might also be a great place to stay.

This is a typical place. Simple food and service. Many things on the menu weren't available but this is Cuba. I gave it 3 based on what I'd like, but Cuban wise it's probably pretty good.

We sat with a group of 7 in the front room of the restaurant. This was some of the best food I had during my 12 days in Cuba. The salad even had lettuce in it.

There is a tendency in Cuba to overcook meats and fish and this restaurant is like that. The chicken was a little salty for my taste. The salad and rice and black beans were better than average

During our stay in Baracoa we went twice to this restaurant. We have loved the fish in coconut sauce. The meat-cum-sauce too! Also good soups (bouillon). And nice people!

Stayed at the wonderful Casa Dos Hermanos across the road and ate here twice. Fabulous local menu that I cant fault. And not too expensive even with the hideous exchange rate for CUC

We came to this restaurant because of Lonely Planet´s recommendations. And it was really good. Waiters are attentive and fast. I reccomend you Baracoa´s speciality called canchanchara with rum and honey.

Most likely the best food you'll experience in Cuba is in Baracoa. La Colonial provide a good blend of spices and coconut flavoured dishes, especially the lobster and the Cancanchara cocktail is recommended.
