The restaurant was across the street from our resort. We decided not to eat the the buffet but to go out to dinner at this restaurant. We sat on the patio outside and enjoyed a wonderful meal and view. Great red wine (usually the wine in Cuba is not so good).Try the fish soup it was excellent. The food portions are generous and the waiters very attentive. Would definitely recommend and come back. Give them a try.

Across the street from Hotel Villa Cuba. Biggest Lobster I've ever seen cooked to perfection. The view, the building and the kitchen 10 out of 10.

They are a complete rip off…they add 10% to every check but is not 10% is $10, they don’t tell you what comes with an up charge and what doesn’t, we spent more money in this restaurant that I would have pay for a quality restaurant in USA. Plus the food is terrible. If you still want to try it, ask for your total in advance before getting the food, otherwise you will be surprised when that check hits you, they will give you a bunch of excuses to why is that amount…AVOID! If you are staying at the Morlas hotel, the guy a the massage table will recommend you to try the restaurant…DONT!

Ate here 2 times in 3 days. Price changed by over $20 the second visit, for the exact same order, same staff. All of a sudden there was a tax on the bill lol. 1st visit - $43. We gave $60 and they never gave any change. We just assumed they misunderstood and thought it was a tip. The food was good so we went back again Only because the food was so bad at the be live las morlas, right across the street. All the locals wipe out the buffets as soon they open. Nothing much to pick from. 2nd visit - $72, we gave $75. They asked us if our last day? Take them to the cleaners I guess. They must assume nobody comes back to Cuba. They are correct this time ! The scamming in varadero is off the charts this year. 8th time here and never seen anything like it. A lot of Canadians said it's their last trip to Cuba. Beware, if you go here ask for the total 1st before eating or there may be a surprise on your bill.

It was just across from our hotel and we enjoyed some nice views from here as well. They also had live music and some events preplanned and announced ...Love the old look of this place...

Met a guy on the beach that works at the restaurant and told me of this amazing shrimp and whole lobster meal for 25US a plate and showed me a picture of it. So i went that night and it was a good size over cooked lobster TAIL, the service was awful and so slow. The seating was on old wood picnic tables inside a building?! Meal was worth 9.99 at best. I ate my over cooked meal and tipped with respect and ate at my resort.

We went with a group, the food in the resort was really bad and this place was recommended. Where not disappointed, but not delighted. The portions are minimal.The special (lobster, prawn, meat) was $30, we where under the impression it was $18. We selected a bottle of Spanish red wine for €16. Not bad under circumstances. Look and feel reminds me of a bistro from the 1980's. They add 10% to the bill.

We went for dinner on the last day so we wouldn't be hungry at the airport. Food was good. Waiter was very nice. No issue taking a steak back for more cooking. It was very reasonable--65 CUC for 5.

We choose to go to this restaurant with the family after a recommendation from a tourist. The staff was too friendly (like the server touching my shoulder three times with a large smile) We asked water and bread and they bring us bottles (2$ US each) and didnt have bread. We took the special meal and chicken for the kids with a 30$ US bottle of red wine. (Of course, the wine was too hot and asked an ice bucket) At 23$ US, the special was a total failure. Langosta, shrimps and beef was very small and overcokked despite the fact that we asked a medium rare baking. No vegetables, only white rice. Very disappointing, the toilet where broken and had no paper. The place want to look like a four stars restaurant but the staff take tourist for dumb pigeons. Avoid at all cost this tourist trap. We end up to the buffet of our hotel, the food was far better and the staff had real smile. The wine was delicious.

The prices were fair and the food tasted good. The staff were very nice and accommodating, the only thing I would say is it takes a really long time to get your cheque so if you are in a hurry you need to ask for it quickly. The piña coladas were the best I have ever had and my husband enjoyed the wine. The mushroom sauce on the beef was very tasty and i enjoyed the avocado with my steak it added a wonderful creaminess to the dish

A man approached us on the beach to invite us to try this restaurant. The food was very good. However, he told us that our drink was included in the price of 25 CUC and it is not. This could have been because his English was not good, and our limited Spanish misunderstood.

It might sound cheesy, since there’s so much to do in Cuba, but we looked forward to our evening meals at this restaurant. After traveling to other parts of Cuba during the day or lounging at the beach, we couldn’t wait to get across the street to “our spot.” The staff is incredible and the views do not disappoint. We enjoyed the steak and lobster for only $25 (can’t get it that cheap here in the US) and also loved the atmosphere. On a hill with a lovely breeze. It’s a very special place. We’re already planning our next trip to Varadero!
