We ate here three times during our Cienfeugos stay. The food was great and the building is lovely. They have a roof terrace also and we had a drink up there one night whilst waiting for a table

Old fashioned, well maintained place with plenty of character. Background live guitar music adds to the experience - not too intrusive. The place is clean and the service very good.

Doña Nora is a restaurant not to be missed in Cienguegos. It can be crowded, and you may have to wait for a table, but wait...it's worth it. The menu is large and varied, a full bar (the piña coladas are excellent...made very uniquely and artistically) and the pork, chicken and fish dishes are all wonderful, served with rice, beans,...

We went there 2 times in 2 days. We had their 2 recommended dishes - excellent the first time, and ok the second. Plenty to eat, and prices are very reasonable. It is hard to find the restaurant, it is up on the first floor, so you have to find and climb a narrow staircase.

We really enjoyed the atmosphere of Dona Nora. There is a really nice rooftop area that overlooks the Prado on one side and the bay on the other. We had a large group of 6, so we waited for over an hour to be seated. This was to be expected and not a problem for us. Once seated, our food... More

We really enjoyed our dinner, good chicken and fish dishes. Outstanding are the handmade French fries made from fresh potatoes. If you find them at all in Cuba, you will hardly ever find such as those!

Had lunch with a group of 20. Best beans and rice, and those who had lamb said it was the best ever. My chicken was very good. Service was excellent. Beautiful setting, inside with lovely architecture, and balcony overlooking a quiet street. Overall a 5!

Thank Volusian4
