Would have liked to see the rice better cooked to get that nice crispy crust on the bottom. Ordered it with chicken which was good.

The staff were friendly and efficient but we were left a little disappointed by the food. The lasagne was good but far from spectacular. The rabbit was much better but accompanying veg not to my taste. The portions were generous. If there is a queue...More

2nd best restaurant of our trip in Cuba. (the best was San José in Trinidad) The Solomillo was simply delicious. Ultra tender and juicy beef. Very good experience, in alternation of the local Cuban food with chicken and beans with rice :)

The place was recommended in our guide, so we went there. If you sit outside, it should be nice, but the interior is not that appealing, particularly of you are looking at the wall on one side and the service desk on the other side...More

Once in a while you want to eat something different than rice and so we found this nice place offering good pasta dishes. We had Vegeterian lasagne and Canneloni, esp. the lasagne portion is huge. Service is fast and very friendly, food is tasty.
