This lovely mansion is built right by the water, with beautiful views of the sea and adjacent beaches. The building itself is worth a guided tour, to learn about its history and architecture. We did not stop for a meal, but there is a very classy bar on the top floor to have a drink with a spectacular view.

We took a pink convertible taxi to dinner last week for a birthday dinner while visiting varadero. We were able to have a short look around at the wine cellar & bar before our seating. Dinner was a great meal....the warm lobster salad appetizer was delicious and large enough to be an entree. Chateaubriand was tender, juicy & perfectly cooked.... More

Based in a mansion house with a historical interest (and currently the Varadero Golf Club), this is fine-dining restaurant which offers a menu heavily influenced by the French cuisine, which is something to look forward to.

What a beautiful mansion. They were restoring it when we were there, but the tour that we got was great, the guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. The view you get here is absolutely fantastic and a must see if you go to Veradero.

Decided to dine one night at xanadu while on a golf getaway, food was definitely sub-par much better at the resort a la carte. Overpriced for what we received

Came for sunset and dinner. Great view over the golf course and out to sea. We were not disappointed. Although there is scaffolding around the building for reno's the sunset from the bar/terrace was worth seeing. Dinner with a live 3 piece band was special. We could envision the lavish parties that were thrown there in the 30's and 40's.... More

What Can I say? Food was excellent, drinks were great, the atmosphere is incredible! Make sure to head up to the bar and get a mojito, one of the best I've ever had! The mansion is worth a look around!

The greens can be a little hard to putt on. Locals try to sell you Pro V golf balls from beyond the fence interrupting your game. Very nice course though.
