The location is surely the best in Cienfuegos and no doubt one of the best in Cuba. The food is very good. But they have a miserable service. You may wait half an hour to be be served. The prices are the highest I have seen so far in Cuba; at leat double Cuban standard.

The restaurant is located outside the colonial center of Cienfuegos on the Malacon with wonderful views across Cienfuegos Bay. The food is good and the service is riendly and quick. And, of course, delicious rum drinks.

From the food to the ambience, everything was perfect. Quaint outdoor seating area, right on the malecon. Food was superior, and even the presentation was impeccable. The service was perfect, food was perfect, ambience was perfect...right down to the sweet little french bulldog, Rocco, that the restaurant owner has strutting around in the back. And don't leave without having at... More

I really don't know what the guide books are talking about but this was the most disappointing meal I had in Cuba, not to mention the most expensive. Did anybody notice the Costco Salt and Pepper grinders on the table? Which in and of itself would not disqualify this restaurant from a good review but the Costco Pasta was definitely... More

Ceviche, peppers and chorizo for the 2 of us worked just fine. Attentive service, well designed on the malecon. $1 CUC draft beer next door at a neighbourhood hangout which contrasted the classy restaurant.

Dining options in this town seem unexceptional, but of our three dinners in Cienfuegos this was clearly the best. It strays beyond the usual local fare, which was a pleasant change for us, and everything we ate was tasty and well-prepared. The ropa vieja was flavorful and not overly salty, and the stuffed peppers were subtle and unusual. A bit... More

Many tourist guides recommend this place but I wouldn't : very expensive place and both the food and the wine were not good. I wanted to order the paella, what seemed the most tempting on the menu, but the waiter mentioned they needed over 45 minutes of preparation...

The least 'local' place so far, which was actually more like a regular restaurant than a paladar. However, we had stuffed peppers, a chickpea dish, some fried fish for me, rice, beans in a soup and salad with a bottle of Chilean Merlot which was all very lovely, together with twinkly lights in a courtyard and a fountain!

Read about it in Lonely Planet and were pleasantly surprised when we visited. There is a nice choice of foods and of good quality. Staff is very helpful and friendly. The first time we didn't make a reservation but they just added a table. The second time they remembered us (and had an umbrella available since it rained when we... More

My husband and I had dinner at Finca del Mar on Saturday February 11, 2017. I ate the grilled lobster. It was overpriced (25 cuc) and served on an empty plate because side dishes are ala carte. The grilled lobster was so tough that I needed to chase down a waiter for a steak knife to cut it. But at... More
