A group of 8 of us had lunch here. The beef was excellent. Tasted like your grandmas slow cooked pot roast. The service and attention from the waiter/bartender as well as the owners made the experience fantastic.

One of the days my wife and I recently spent in Cienfuegos was a total washout - pouring rain from dawn to dusk. We still spent the day exploring, but after wading through the city and being wet for many hours we wanted to have...More

We appreciated Casa de Chango's outdoorsy, casual atmosphere, combined with authentic Cuban food. However, our lunch was accompanied by very average service and food that was well below par. The decor is striking but challenging rather than welcoming, and toilet facilities are limited. Most surprisingly,...More

Bad food overall. This is strictly a tourist destination with poor quality food. The atmosphere and view are shabby. If you do eat here all prices are negotiable, we were able get the price down before ordering.

This was one of the worst experiences of my life. It started innocuously enough. Our driver suggested a "nice place for lunch" in Cienfuegos on our way back from Trinidad to Havana, and without suspecting any ulterior motives, we assented and invited him to join...More

I chose to have dinner at the Casa de Chango because I had read and been told that it was one the the good affordable restaurants in Cinefuegos. I was greatly disappointed. The service was extremely slow (the mojito was brought after the first course...),...More

I enjoy the best dinner with my family at this place. The attention is familiar, affordable and transparent. The food is delicious, good cooked and exquisite. The location is easy to find in the city and near to a beautiful Malecon.

Chango is a relatively new paladar in Cienfuegos. It is only a couple of blocks east off the Prado just at the beginning of the Malecon, I believe it is right next to another paladar called Ache. The owner, Carlos, is often out front and welcomes you. His wife is the cook, both are very friendly. There is a small bar and the restaurant seats about 20 people. We ate there one night and came back 4 out of the next 5 nights. Lots of variations on lobster, shrimp, chicken, fish, pork and beef. Try the Enchilida Lobster, loved it. I also took a group of 20 people there one night, everyone loved it. Shrimp cocktail, lobster, desert, beverage and coffee come to about $15/person. Watch what you say and do though, Carlos is a Santaria Priest.
