I love the Colonial for their Callalou, a coconut based sauce with seasonal veggies over rice makes for a great break from the heavy meat dishes everywhere in Cuba. I like meat, just like a healthy dose of veggies once in a while too. While...More

This was our second favourite restaurant in Baracoa. The coconut sauce that is traditional in Baracoa was very good here. I had fresh crab in coconut sauce and just loved it. My friends also had great meals.

The service may be slow (one hour from ordering until food began to appear) but the food is certainly worth waiting for and is well priced. The chicken soup and lobster were excellent.

We stayed in the Casa Particular across the road from this restaurant ("2 Hermanos", would also highly recommend) and regret only eating here once. This was by far the highlight for us out of the 5 restaurants that we ate at in Baracoa. We had...More

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.
