Last time I was by there it was closed. Hopefully it will have new owners and reopen. The rooftop restaurant /bar was one of the best. Maybe someone can update us on it's progress.

The best meal in Cienfuegos! The restaurant is on a roof top and has a trolley/streetcar theme. The waitstaff is very professional and attentive. English is spoken fluently. The food choices are many and EXCELLENT quality. Would not hesitate to recommend El Tranvia!!
