If you love seafood you must stop here. Make sure to make reservations! 3 Lobster tails and shrimp for 15 CUC plus rice and beans, fruit and salad and a glass of wine. How can you go wrong?

My husband and I made reservations to have dinner at El Cacique after having the restaurant pointed out to us on a guided walk from the Memories,Jibacoa Resort we were staying at. A couple on our walk confirmed that they had eaten there a few days before and said it was fantastic and great value. It was our last night of our vacation, and it was without a doubt, the best meal we had all week. For 15 CUC a person, the we got a enought food to feed our entire family of 5 and there were only 2 of us! It was too much food. We felt so guilty for wasting. If I ever went back again, I think I would order ONE meal for 2 of us. The meal came with a grilled lobster, and a very generous portions of spiced shrimp, a large plate of rice and beans, freshly cut fruit, a plate of sliced vegetables and a plate of banana chips and . Everything was delicious! The restaurant became packed and half of the guests were Cubans, all pulling up in old classic cars! If you are staying at Memories, walk down the street and treat yourself to a fantastic seafood dinner, you won't regret it!

Bring your appetite if you go here. Good food and friendly service. We had the lobster and shrimp and It makes a nice change from the resort buffet.
