Enjoyed a night out with friends recently, grilled shrimp, chicken and congri rice + beans. Also recommend the flan for dessert. Courteous, polite and professional service and really nice terrace. Its a 5 minute moto-taxi ride from Cespedes.

Sitting on top of the second floor you can watch the evening fall over Santiago de Cuba. Salon Tropical offers western and cuban foods and drinks. The fish and lobsters where great. It's a 15 minute walk from the city centre but it's worth it.

We stumbled on this Paladar and ate on the roof outdoors. Food was excellent-they had a grill night but other choices were available. Prices extremely cheap which makes it a great value. Service a bit slow but that can be viewed as an advantage compared...More
