Food was amazing! Piña Coldas were great! Staff was very nice, the restaurant itself was very nice, small and you didn't have to wait too long for your order to arrive. Have been there every time we go to Varadero never disappointed!

We served an average food after a long time. We didn't complain because we were not much hungry and have plenty of time. we also didn't like the dresses of the waitresses. wrong choice for the size.

We went for dinner and just a few choices....food was ok and reasonable prices. The place was clean, staff friendly, but not a large variety of food.

This became or favorite place to eat. Our kids loved the hamburgers and we loved the ropa vieja, chicken breast with cheese and delicious fish. The staff here speak English and are very nice. The servings are large fresh and filling.

Nice to eat out6 in the open. Lobster was very good and a good size for the money. Service was excellent. Remember to ask for butter and garlic as they will serve it with a tomato sauce
