Expensive as Cuban restaurants go, but it was worth it: excellent seafood in lovely surroundings. Mind you, it is busy, so book, especially if you want to eat a bit later in the evening. But service is quick and efficient and - like so many places in Cuba - you are welcomed and looked after with great charm and attentiveness.... More

Friendly english speaking staff, short waiting times, well prepared coctails. We were a group of eight friends, had reservation, took the full menu and did not regret it: I took lobster as main plate, prepared carribean way. At dessert the whole staff brought a birthday cake for one of my friends and started singing: just to remember us being on... More

Located right on the water, this paladar (privately-run restaurant) was quite popular for dinner as all the tables were filled. The menu offered a variety of seafood (as was to be expected) as well as pork and chicken. The catch of the day was tasty and the shrimp in garlic & butter sauce were delicious. Wonderful soup, but the chopped... More

Food in Cuba is pretty basic. Actually it's poor. That's partly because the country is poor and partly because it's been closed off to outside influences since the revolution and any classy cuisine left with the exiles who fled to Miami. One puzzle is why there virtually are no tapas bars in Cuba given that it was Spanish colony for... More

Our group tried chicken, beef, fish and shrimps. All the plates were tasty and the dessert was too. I have been for lunch and dinner and I liked lunch to be able to catch the people and views around us.

Located on Punta Gorda, near Jagua Hotel. Attractive facility, on ground level, with subtle gradient from outside to inside dining. Modern furnishings. Food was quite good. We enjoyed the large shrimp, along with other common Cuban side dishes. The squash soup was extra good (must have been the season for squash, as we had it about 80% of the time... More

We had been told this was the best place in town. Our hole-in-the-wall lunch restaurant in town was far better. The atmosphere was terrible - no music, no interesting decor - and the food was just so-so. I would definitely not recommend this place

Had lunch and a dinner here. Nice location across from the bay with tables surrounding a small fountain. Good food that had some unique dishes that were different from the usual Cuba fare. Small bar and they had rock videos playing on their TV and sound system. Excellent service. Our server had a graduate degree in software engineering, and is... More

My experience with Finca del Mar was very disappointing. My lobster was overcooked and overly salty. The food portions were very small and the prices were very high. My drink was watered down, and the service was indifferent. There are better dinning choices in this town.

This was probably the "nicest" meal we had in Cuba but I agree with the other comments that it is overpriced and touristy. The service was average.
