A large selection of dishes and everyone in our group enjoyed what they had ordered. Service staff was attentive and our food was served quickly. I recommend a rooftop table if available. The view is great.

We were part of a 20 person group and we were all served very quickly. Food was very nicely presented and was delicious. Everyone was pleased with their meal. Doesn't look like much from the street but don't let that put you off. Sunset from the roof was very nice. Close to many casa particulars. There are two bathrooms: one... More

Situated at the end of the Prado just before the start of The Malecon. Up a steep flight of stairs is a beautiful high ceilinged restaurant that opens up onto a balcony overlooking the Prado. We had the lamb cooked in white wine and aged Rum...it was delicious and tender but ruined by the cut which was a presentation of... More

We had a recommendation to come here for dinner and it was very nice. The restaurant is busy and we could see why. The food and service were very good. There was excellent Cuban food and a good variety of dishes. Being by the water one of our meals was the shrimp in red sauce and the other was a... More

We very much enjoyed our evening meal here. We were lucky enough to get a table on the balcony - the last of the sunshine lighting up the pretty buildings of Prado opposite. The staff were cheerful and attentive without being too quick as we found elsewhere in Cuba. The food was enjoyable too.

I had three different meals here: breakfast, lunch, and dinner all on separate days and each meal was well prepared and served. The owner, Yarek, and his family are friendly and hard working folks. They also have a casa particular in the restaurant should you need a place to stay. I really enjoyed my three meals there and recommend Dona... More

Limited menu. Only one fish offered and not a good one. Rice was good. Nice atmosphere, drinks and wine.

Along the Prado, the main street running thru Cienfuegos, one finds the non-descript entrance of paladar and Casa Particular Dona Nora. Once going up a steep flights of stairs, you are in what is a living room decorated with tables with tablecloths and glass and flatware. You are essentially in a wonderful living room with a balcony that overlooks the... More

My grilled fish was so seasoned with cumin and salt that it was not edible. My friends had somewhat (not a lot) better meals but it was also nothing special. The drinks, rice and the salad was OK. The decorations is lovely. Wouldn't recommend.
