We visited Holguin for the Pope's visit last year. I can't wait to go back in March. My most visited restaurant was San Jose and the quality of the food was excellent. Fresh Salmon served with rice salad and some fried bananas for 80 cup just over 3 dollars. The fillet of Salmon was gigantic. All future visits were of... More

Smaller groups or couples may have a different experience. We were a group of about 31 and I think the restaurant couldn't service us adequately due to the large demand on the kitchen. The result was that we could be seated and served, but the wait staff was overwhelmed and the kitchen was not able to service our needs. Two... More

We got here after a long day flying and we were very hungry. Our Cuban friends had heard of this place and made reservations and we are glad they found it. The place is very clean, the staff is very friendly and the food was excellent.

Went for lunch. Had the BBQ Chicken, Soup, Salad. Everything was good. But, nothing to write home about. Good place to get something to eat. But nothing special.

My friend CubanWaters recommended this restaurant to us and we were very happy with our food. You can see the chef preparing your meal and he is obviously passionate about what he does. The menu is in CUP and the prices overall are reasonable. Most cocktails (mojito etc) are 50 CUP. The pork dish I had was cooked and seasoned... More

This is a wonderful restaurant on one of the many squares in the town of Holguin. We had a group of about 20 people for dinner, and the food was wonderful. The service was also excellent, so we would highly recommend this restaurant for high quality food at a reasonable price.

Really beautiful place and still affordable for backpackers like us. Definetly one of the best restaurants that we've been to among Cuba.

Our first lunch in Cuba was at Restaurante Parrillada and it was fabulous. Who knew that I'd fall in love with eating goat. The owners and staff were fabulous to talk with and they just put up an American flag (they already had other international flags) to recognize the increase in Americans visiting Cuba. I was part of a tour... More

I have eaten at the Restaurante Bar Parrillada San Jose on a few occasions for both lunch and dinner. Each experience has been similar, good food and service overall. The prices are reasonable and I like the location, as San Jose park is one of my favorites. The restaurant offers a decent selection of food and drinks, and each meal... More
