This is a restaurant typical for Cubans and tourists who enjoy creole food. The environment is pretty gloomy and the service quite slow. Some people may feel that this is an alternative to the restaurants of the close hotel Pernik, but beware.

Dined here for dinner as part of our tour. Since our group was larger (appx 35) they knew in advance what we wanted as we were given a choice between 4 dishes. The servers were friendly and the restaurant had a nice atmosphere. Only thing is that some of our meals were and bland.

Service was painfully slow, food was cold. Was with a tour group & the restaurant knew well in advance the group number. Would not recommend or return.

Don't get in the water. Walk around the property, share a beer with Pancho Jr. Jr. Jr. Jr. (yeah, the original died decades ago). If I recall correctly, there are great sights and a small collection of barn animals and exotic birds to look at. Save your swimming for the beach and the resort pool, save yourself the trouble of...

My most favorite place! Besides the great service, I love their brewed beers. Especially the Mocha Machine. The food is excellent as well.

Oh my! this is a place to eat until you can't eat more..I love the food...the staff is friendly...and as it is in most of the places...a tip is appreciate.. 1 US dollar equals to 25 national money for them or 80 cuc cents.. A 5 US dollar tip is way good..

Part of our bus tour. I had pork, my friends had chicken. Meat was good. French fries were cold. Only beer was included, and I don't drink that. Otherwise was okay.
