Ok, to be fair...Cuba is not known for good food. Yes, that is everywhere! We are foodies and adjusted our palates to this reality very quickly. Enjoy the food and a bad bottle of Chilean wine. The service is friendly and the views are spectacular!

This restaurant is out of the town a few kilometers, but worth the trip to get there. The views are tremendous from their balconies. The menu is simply "beef, pork, chicken, or fish" with all the accompaniments. Believe me, it is a lot of food and only 8 cucs. They allowed my husband and me to share a meal, though,... More

This restaurant has the most perfect place in the valley. The view you have there while you eat is phenomenal. The food is great too and plenty for the money you pay (which is almost nothing). I really enjoyed this.

The actual restaurant looks a little run down but the views are wonderful. We didn't eat although the food did look good.

Not the best food, typical Cuban. I've had better service but it was pleasant and acceptable. The view alone is worth every peso spent here....if your heart can take sitting on the patio.

Wonderful waitress, solid food (not great be Cuban-good), good drinks, and outstanding view and sunset. Not a lot of choice in Vinales and this was popular with our family.
