Very nice small Restaurant / Cafe' in the park. great for a drink or a light snack, kids love the ice creams, and just sit back and relax. Service is slow, but this is Cuba. lol

The combo plate is the best.Lasagna, Penne, and Spaghetti with brachette bread. Very reasonably priced. If you like wine they only sell it by the bottle. $ 25 CUC.

We visit Dantes every visit to Varadero and we always have the combination. It is amazing, the quality and quantity. Never disappointed.

I never thought it was possible but I was amazed. The quality of food, the amazing staff and service. The view was also very pretty considering we were in front of a man made lake. Gorgeous view. Happy I tried it out! Would recommend this.

If you're looking for cheap eats and lots of it, I recommend the 3 in 1 plate, like many places in varadero the cost of wine have gone through the roof, where I used to pay 10$ a bottle 3 years ago I now pay $40, bring your own wine.

We were disappointed about this restaurant. They only serve one kind of pasta (spaghetti), not the four different kinds they offer on the menu. It was not possible to become some local water (that was not imported all the way from italy). The service was slow. The food was average and the price too high for what it was. We... More

Love that tasting plate - we share it (15 CUC ). A little bit short for two person but quite enough if you are not too hungry. The lasagna was amazing ! didn't try the pizza but looks good (5CUC + CUC by added toppings). A/C available or patio by the water
