Needed a bit of change to the resort buffet. This place is great. I had the garlic shrimp, perfectly cooked and tasted great. My girlfriend had the fish fillet, another great dish. Must try the Pina Coladas, the bartenders specialty! Will certainly come back!

My husband, daughter and I stopped at this restaurant for an early dinner. When we arrived, we were greeted by our server and then shortly thereafter, the entertainment. The food was good, the service was great. I will definitely go back

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.
