A group of us were booked in here as an alternative to the set meal we were being offered elsewhere by our tour guide. When we arrived we were advised of their set meal which they wanted us to have for their ease as a big group. However most of us just wanted main courses and they did agree to... More

Sitting on top of the second floor you can watch the evening fall over Santiago de Cuba. Salon Tropical offers western and cuban foods and drinks. The fish and lobsters where great. It's a 15 minute walk from the city centre but it's worth it.

Salon Tropical is located a little outside the center of Santiago de Cuba, about 10 minutes walk from the zoological garden. From the terrace, you have a great view of the city, which makes the place ideal for a nightly dinner They clearly specialize in seafood. We had Lobster and Shrimps and both looked and tasted amazing. The cook prepared... More

We ate at this Paladar (privately run restaurants mostly in private houses) a few times, lunchtime and evenings. We found the food was good and even when quite full they would somehow fit us in. It's a bit difficult to find but the address given on TripAdvisor is correct. If you ask people on the street they will direct you... More

We stumbled on this Paladar and ate on the roof outdoors. Food was excellent-they had a grill night but other choices were available. Prices extremely cheap which makes it a great value. Service a bit slow but that can be viewed as an advantage compared to the rushed service in the States in order to turn over tables. Highly recommended... More

Lonely Planet named this one of the few decent places to eat in Santiago de Cuba, and I agree with that, but this place stands up to any restaurant in Cuba. Specifically, the soup I had was outstanding, excellent use of flavors, hearty, but not too thick. I also had a grilled pork and onion dish that was incredibly flavorful,... More

Food in Santiago is mostly bad, this one was worse, expensive, took was TWO HOURS to get our meals and they were not that good. If I were you, I would stay away from sea food in all santiago
