We enjoyed a simple meal here on our first night in Santiago. It was a cozy atmosphere for our group of 15 people and the family type space made up for the plain meal. We were entertained during dinner by two excellent musicians, both playing guitar and singing.

I am a bit torn about this place... The staff was helpful and tried to accommodate our slightly big group although it was a bit late as well. My chicken casserole was very nice but some of my friends were not that pleased with their plates. Towards the end of our meal a lady in her nightgown appeared in the... More

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful lunch here. They gave us some lovely local beer and fried plantain chips with salad. My boyfriend had lobster which was so fresh and tasty and I had some beautiful grilled pork with salad. The little restaurant is down the bottom of some very high steps very near Fidel Castro childhood home...We really... More

Great meals and well worth the effort to find this restaurant. Have the lamb stew - half serve special is more then enough in the Santiago heat. Finger licking good! Also the best custard tart this side of Lisbon, so make sure to leave some room for at least one piece!

Up a dark side-street and a flight of stairs not far from the city centre. We had a comfortable meal marred only by the fact that only one other table was occupied during our stay. The food was well-prepared and came without overmuch delay.

the food was good and well prepared. the problem was that most of the items in the menu did not exist, although this is something quite common in Cuba. the flan was delicious so our daughter was ready to come back to this restaurant again and again. I think it is a good choice for Santiago that for some reason... More

Good food. We were sitting on the balcony overlooking the street. The lobster portion was a little smaller than we are used to in Cuba, but still a great place for dinner.
