What makes it so good? The location is outstanding! Three terrace decks built side by side hanging over the valley giving an infinity view is just breathtaking. There is not a bad seat in this outdoor restaurant. Book a table half an hour before the sun goes down and experience the sunset over the valley and mogotes. The menu is... More

There's a set menu of several courses (bread, salad, soup, mains, desert) and you can choose lobster, pork, shredded beef or chicken. It was excellent. The only thing... More

After a day of packing in the sights of the Viñales Valley, we stopped here for a lunch on the patio. It has a great view of the mogotes and surrounding Valley.

The food is simple, nothing amazing, but solid and dependable. Good chicken, excellent fish, and ropa was great. But what makes this an experience is the view. What a view!! If all you do is stop by to have a beer, DO IT!

We stopped here for lunch on our day tour of Vinales. Our guide, Lisandra B. with havanatur.cu arranged delicious vegetarian meals for us including soup, rices and vegetables, fresh fruits and coffees. The views here are simply amazing. We had a wonderful meal.

Do go there with a taxi for the view, but skip the meal and do not order anything but drinks or a fruit plate. On the whole, the food is very bland, lacks freshness and taste. Vinales has much, much better restaurants to offer.

Typical Cuban food, most of it produced by the restaurant not different to anywhere else, but organic and served with a smile. Lovely view of the valley
