“Freshly cooked, but strange food”

We were on an organised dinner with a taster menu not chosen by us. The feedback was mixed with some in our party of 14 loving it and others really disliking it. However, the desserts were out of this world! I think if we could have all chosen a la carte it would have been a nicer experience. The worst was the toilet as there was a lack of water, so staff had to empty a bucket into it. There was also no water to wash your hands on the night. We originally had booked for the previous night, but received a phone call that the restaurant was shut due to a lack of water!

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.

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

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.

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.
