Bad food overall. This is strictly a tourist destination with poor quality food. The atmosphere and view are shabby. If you do eat here all prices are negotiable, we were able get the price down before ordering.

This was one of the worst experiences of my life. It started innocuously enough. Our driver suggested a "nice place for lunch" in Cienfuegos on our way back from Trinidad to Havana, and without suspecting any ulterior motives, we assented and invited him to join...More

I chose to have dinner at the Casa de Chango because I had read and been told that it was one the the good affordable restaurants in Cinefuegos. I was greatly disappointed. The service was extremely slow (the mojito was brought after the first course...),...More

I enjoy the best dinner with my family at this place. The attention is familiar, affordable and transparent. The food is delicious, good cooked and exquisite. The location is easy to find in the city and near to a beautiful Malecon.

I've traveled extensively and am not picky when it comes to sanitation, but the bathroom in this place was pretty bad (no toilet seat, no soap, dirty) and there was a fecal odor in the restaurant. Food was unremarkable, service was very slow. When we...More

We went there on the recommendation of our guidebook (le Routard). The dining room is pretty kitsch but well, the band was inviting... First, the mojito was as tasty as sparkling water. Then, the menu shows no prices, and the waiter indicates we must take...More

I am not sure what's going on with some of the other reviews here, or indeed with Tripadvisor's suggestion that there might be something untoward going on with the reviews. Yes, there are no prices on the menu. Yes, they showed me the lunch time...More

Chango is a relatively new paladar in Cienfuegos. It is only a couple of blocks east off the Prado just at the beginning of the Malecon, I believe it is right next to another paladar called Ache. The owner, Carlos, is often out front and welcomes you. His wife is the cook, both are very friendly. There is a small bar and the restaurant seats about 20 people. We ate there one night and came back 4 out of the next 5 nights. Lots of variations on lobster, shrimp, chicken, fish, pork and beef. Try the Enchilida Lobster, loved it. I also took a group of 20 people there one night, everyone loved it. Shrimp cocktail, lobster, desert, beverage and coffee come to about $15/person. Watch what you say and do though, Carlos is a Santaria Priest.
