El Romero, located down the steps from the Moka Hotel, promises gourmet vegetarian cuisine -- and delivers it. Food is sustainable harvested/procured wherever possible, and it's amazing what can come out of such a tiny kitchen. Posted hours were 9 a.m. - 9 p.m., but when we arrived about 5 p.m. the sign on the door said "closed". We went... More

We knew we wanted to visit this restaurant while we were in Las Terrazas and it was well worth it. Great, organic veggie food. Small, medium and large portions so you can try lots of different things. There is a beautiful terrace if you can nab one of the two tables out there. Go - even if you're not a... More

I am not a vegetarian but it did show what is possible when not using meat and the main part of a dish. The food was good but the restaurant was packed

A unique restaurant in Cuba, with absolutely fantastic veggie food. The service isn't that good, the waiters don't really seem to care. Make sure you make a reservation for dinner (at least) a day before; even in lowseason!

If you go to Las Terrazas (which you should), you MUST go here. Sit on the balcony for a wonderful view and enjoy fabulous, eco-friendly, fresh, tasty ingredients from a really inventive menu. The food looks and tastes amazing, and it's healthy too!

My whole family was thrilled by this meal! It was extraordinary that they had this environmentally-friendly, green, eco-food in Las Terrazas. We loved the concept, and open-restaurant. We were also very pleased to eat here since we it is not so easy to eat vegetarian food in Cuba. It was beautiful, and the waiter was very friendly. The food was... More

This was one of the most creative and interesting meals we had in Cuba. Wonderful food, great small restaurant with a bit of terrace seating. Tiny kitchen aside the main dining area. Completely vegetarian (a plus for me). They had many of the traditional sorts of Cuban dishes but with a bit of a twist and some creativity and differences... More

The colors are bright, the shared plates we had were delicious. All locally grown vegetable dishes and artisanal bread are made right on the premises. Perched on the side of a steep incline overlooking Las Terrazas, El Romero will provide one of your most memorable Cuban meals.

Although the restaurant is being portrayed as one of the finest in Las Terrazas I think otherwise. The saads are okay but certainly not very special. The cook is certainly fond of soy sauce to flavour her dishes. It is too much and all dishes taste like soy sauce. I would not recommand especially because of the the high prices... More

We found the dishes inventive, especially after the rice-tomatoes-cabbage-cucumbers at every meal, but very expensive for what it was. It was one of the most expensive meal of our 2-weeks stay! I've chosen the wheat steak with soja sauce and it was soaking in soja sauce so much that it was terribly salty and not good at all. The good... More
