“el romero, las terrazas”
Reviewed 31 October 2012

This small, stylish restaurant deserves five stars. The food is well-prepared, vegetarian and made with local produce. Everything is fresh and freshly-made. The dishes are imaginative and very tasty. Portions are ample. After frequenting restaurants in La Habana and Trinidad, this was a welcome respite from American- inspired and traditional Cuban cuisine. We stayed at the Moka hotel for three days and ate practically every meal at Romero after having tried other restaurants in the area.

“BEST food in Cuba!”
Reviewed 13 June 2011

Fresh, locally grown food served here. They don't serve any meat, and the dishes are a little pricely by Cuban standards (cheap for North America), but it's really worth it. Lots of interesting drinks, main dishes, and desserts.

“Hurrah homemade fresh bread atlast and no pork, rice and beans!”
Reviewed 19 December 2010

After more than a week of the traditional Cuban roast pork or chicken with rice and beans for lunch and dinner this little restaurant was such a find - homemade soup and wholesome vegetarian meals were so welcome. Yes we were lucky to have food but it does get rather repetative and I know one doesn't go to Cuba for the food. Well done for being so enterprising and it shows you are popular as people were being turned away.
