Our tourist guide recommended this place on our tour of Matanzas. It is down a back alley and I'm sure you'd have a heck of a time finding it if you didn't know exactly where to go. The food was incredible (especially by Cuban standards) and the atmosphere was great. It's an outdoor restaurant with an indoor vibe. I give it a 4/5 because it is definitely a tourist trap... the prices are extremely expensive, even before the mandatory tip.

Another amazing evening! We were here two years ago with friends and cane again with family on our return to Cuba. Wonderful service, and amazing food. A little pricey but we definitely felt that we got our money’s worth.

Others are posting the same experience, so you know it's happening! We asked our driver to take us to a different restaurant that we had just heard great things about. He tells us it's full, but he knows a place we can get in. Brings us here. Sits in the back drinking and eating with the staff like it's a reunion... Not cool!! The restaurant was busy, yes, but not packed. We get a server in good time , and order drinks. We place our order for eight people at 7:20. Over half the items listed on the menu are no longer available, but they do not tell us to choose another option for almost half an hour. Our drinks arrive in a few minutes , and we start talking. We did NOT see a server at our table again until 8:35. Our drinks were long gone, no refills coming, and the table next to us for four who were sat after us, have eaten dinner and gone already. One of our crew gets up and tries to talk to the server, who is clearly unaware we are still there. After 10 more mins, she comes back to take a second round of drink orders, but no sign of our food. After talking to the server a second time, we finally get our meals. When the food actually arrives, at 9:25, the portions are quite small, everything is bland and mushy, and the people who ordered the special with lobster have to strain to find it. We are pretty much the last table to get food for the evening, the band has left already, and they are closing. We have been to Cuba before, and were not expecting the world's best food, but this was sub sub-par, even for Cuba. The kicker is that they would only accept US $ or Euros for the payment, and added a service fee to the bill already, so we had to tip. Personally, my meal was three piles of shredded beef, pork and chicken with a pile of rice, and with two local beers, my bill was $78.00USD?? Really?? I took a group of 8 for pizza at lunch, and our whole bill was less than that!! Any cab driver who brings you here is NOT your friend! They have a deal with the restaurant, and you are paying for it!!

I have never felt more betrayed or disgusted, by what me and my family went threw. The horse and buggy deivers look for tourists, so they can bring them to the most expensive restaurant you have ever been to. They charged my family 300$ USD just for lunch. Plus the driver then charged us 20$ for a two hour ride. Sorry 20$ per person. Which they didn't explain until after it was over. Do not go to this place. Literally stick to the main town and the government run restaurants. Unbelievable ruined the whole trip and left feeling so filthy.

Beware cab driver will take you to this restraunt down a back alley and tell you it’s the best. We were told by our bus host not to pay for food in town with US dollars. Convert money and pay in Cuban better deal. This place is in US dollars 3 times more than In Town and they do not take visa or know how to convert Cuban dollars to pesos We insisted they tell us how much in Cuban pesos cause that’s all I brought as well as my visa - they don’t take. Clearly they did the conversion wrong and we knew we didn’t have enough money so we told them we were leaving. Nothing was on the grill at this point. They were not happy and asked us to have the cab driver pay for us and give him the money later. We said forget it got a cab to downtown varedero and ate for much cheaper prices

I can’t believe this place rates a 4.5. Expensive and the food was barely edible. I had better food on the resort. Heard there are 2 different menus/prices and over half the items on the menu weren’t available. So disappointed!

Stay away. It’s part of an elaborate plot by taxi drivers and the horse carriage drivers to take you there. Over priced entrees costing $25 USD, basically fish and rice. For that price I’d expect a filet mignon. Try to order something cheaper and they don’t have it. Horse carriage scammer waited after bringing us there , charging us by the minute yet never telling us this until the end of the trip, despite telling us the trip was $10 for all of us, it ended us costing us $80. It’s located down a dirt road in the back woods. Just a down right nasty experience all because of the scam. Other patrons there somehow ended up with their driver sitting down with them to eat. They didn’t look impressed. They paid with euros and did not seem happy when they left. I don’t think they received any change back that was expected.

The food was good, but just good. The prices are high for what they offer, but I’m all for supporting the locals. Didn’t understand why all prices are in USD when there is no US citizens traveling to Cuba? Majority are Canadian, European and other communist countries like Russia and China, NOT Americans!!! The conversion from the USD to any other currency is just another money grab for them and that I didn’t appreciate.

OBVIOUSLY TOURIST TRAP stay far away. It is at the end of a dead end road anyway. VERY rude service, overpriced drinks and food. My husband who is Cuban and his family were treated so bad we decided to leave. Unless you don't mind being taken advantage of, don't bother going. You're Welcome

Fun little spot. Good atmosphere. There was an open bbq where the chefs were grilling fish, chicken and lobster tails. Good food with good prices.

We were there Sunday November 3rd early dinner, our 2nd year attending for the fresh fish, good food - but we were totally taken back by the band leader who after 5 songs suggested that each of the four of us tip $20 CUC each - WOW !!! We collectively tipped $25 CUC for 5 songs which was more than fair - We've each been to Cuba at least 8 times for a golf vacation - THANKFULLY HE'S NOT REPRESENTATIVE OF ALL THE AMAZING CUBANS WE HAVE MET AND KEEPS US COMING BACK. We will definitely not be returning !!!!

We were told to come here by the hotel door guy and they swore by this place. It is decent food but nothing special. Very overpriced for what it is. Not to mention the band played a song by our table we gave them $10 Cuc and they played another song after and asked for more money . It's a cash crab here.

This is one of the best meals we had in Cuba, and the best in Varadero. It was recommended by our hotel staff and we weren't disappointed. The meal was giant and we were so happy with what we got. More beer available here than just crystal. We were very happy with our food. There was also an awesome band, the man who sings was amazing. Here's the catch, bring alot of pesos because it's pricy. And we weren't told how much it was going to be. We had to pay half in pesos and half Canadian and the math on the remaining didn't make sense so we ended up over paying about 15 dollars or more. Dont risk not bringing local currency.

We were looking to find good food off our resort, so we asked our taxi driver to take us to a decent place for bbq, he took us here and we did not regret it, you need to go down a back lane which seems sketchy but once you pull up to the restaurant you immediately love it. For the amount of food you get the price is worth it, also the band was awesome and the violinist is something else 🎻🎶😍💜 I will be back.
