“Wonderful veggie food in Cuba”
Reviewed 19 September 2013

I forgot to write this review straight after my trip, but this place was such a good find that it deserves to be known about!

As a vegetarian on holiday in Cuba, it can be a little difficult at lunchtimes to have much more than a pretty basic spaghetti, egg and chips or beans and rice, so this made a great change!

I can't remember what we ordered and the specifics, but it was all very tasty and the mains were very large and filling. While prices were a bit more European than some places, they weren't overly expensive and no different to the places we ate at in the evenings, so for veggies definitely worth a trip (Las Terrazas is a really cool place anyway) and for non veggies visiting Las Terrazas, worth checking out if you fancy a nice lunch.

“Interesting- worth a try”
Reviewed 11 September 2013

We had one of the 2 tables on a very small outside balcony which was fun. The dishes- which we all shared were rather variable. None of us are veggie by inclination! The spaghetti was cooked to perfection. Service was a little functional but not unfriendly. Good value

“all veggie place!”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

Cubans tend to eat a lot of meat. I was happy to have found a place where they only serve vegetables. Beautiful creations that taste very very well.

“Great veggie food at last!”
Reviewed 23 August 2013 via mobile

Well organised restaurant with pre-prepared dishes, served quickly and attractively. Nice dips, tempura, pie, terrine, and pancakes on the menu gives lots of variety. Juice menu is often patchy but the mojito are better anyway! Would go back.

“Great food and service”
Reviewed 20 August 2013

We had two great meals here, the service was good and we managed to get one of the two tables on the small terrace both times. A creative menu with ability to choose small, medium or large portions. One of the best meals we had on two week stay. I find it strange that it is state run when it is so much better than other state run ventures.
