A cool restaurant with no airco in sight. That can be called an achievement in Cuba. Also, good food, pleasant staff and nice interior.

Three weeks in Cuba and we ate quite a variety of fine food - and Dona Nora's was one of the two best restaurants. Luckily we ate there early in our stay in Cienfuegos, and so could enjoy the pleasure of a return. The specials...More
