Grilled lobster tail plate was the best meal I had my whole trip and not as expensive and some more high end places, way better food. Shrimp cocktail I do not recommend though. BUT DEFINITELY get the lobster!

I went with a group of friends on the double decker bus and this place was recommended for dinner. I had the fried chicken with rice, fried plantains, veggies and a pop for 5 CUC and it was more than enough food and delicious. For an extra 5 CUC I would recommend getting the piña colada

Good service, lunch time, but our first 2 choices on the menu were sold out. Large portions and good quality - we had the chicken in tomato sauce with Vicaria rice, and the grilled lobster (huge one!). Very reasonable prices, value for money.

When visiting Varadero, we had lunch at the La Vicaria restaurant. It had great ambiance and service. The food was very good and was reasonable priced. We took the Hop On-Hop Off bus to and from this location and it was very convienent.

We ate twice at this restuarant in Feb 2017. On both occasions we had generous portions and well presented sides of rice and beans and fried bananas. The Uruquay Steak was delicious and the grilled fish was cooked perfectly.

It's a nice atmosphere its a big tiki bar but with all necessary comodities, no A/C its open air, they have all sorts of cuban food, and a full bar it's great for lunch and dinner. My favorite is their version of shrimp scampi only 7cuc, cheap and good service.

This is a good restaurant to eat. It is not very expensive. You can make a reservation if you need to. I recommend you do this if is high season.
