We stopped in to have a beer and listen to a live Cuban band. Lots of fun! Although we didn’t eat the food looked and smelled delicious.

The atmosphere is nice. Service is slow. Lobster was good, but not cheap. Band was okay. I was surprised that they were requesting tips. We know how tips work.

Service sucked, and was constantly looking for staff Food was minimal and way overcharged for what you get. Don't get suckered in , looks great but doesn't fulfill you

We stopped here for lunch, the shrimp was good and nice coffee. But the highlight was great service and an amazing band.

The lobster was very good here.....price was only $15.00 CUC. The filet mignon was also good here. This restaurant is right across the street from Josone Park in Varadero.
