This restaurant has the most perfect place in the valley. The view you have there while you eat is phenomenal. The food is great too and plenty for the money you pay (which is almost nothing). I really enjoyed this.

The actual restaurant looks a little run down but the views are wonderful. We didn't eat although the food did look good.

Not the best food, typical Cuban. I've had better service but it was pleasant and acceptable. The view alone is worth every peso spent here....if your heart can take sitting on the patio.

Wonderful waitress, solid food (not great be Cuban-good), good drinks, and outstanding view and sunset. Not a lot of choice in Vinales and this was popular with our family.

Stopped late morning by chance and luckily they had a table free for a quick drink and snack. Worth it for the stunning view. Prices reflect the view, would recommend to book if you plan to eat here.

We drank some mojitos and enjoyed the sunset from the balcon del valle. It was awesome, relaxing and the service accordingly, they let us enjoy the view and did not rush for more drinks or something to eat.

Watched a cooking demonstration and then had Christmas Even Dinner here with our group. The balcony was excellent and the service was good. The pork was tasty if (as usual in Cuba) overcooked. Worth the drive.

After a day of cycling around the Valle we finished up here for a quick bite to eat and some beers and cocktails whilst we watched the sun set. We literally sat out over a cliff edge on a wooden platform and watched an amazing sunset. The colours over the valley amazing. Finish your trip to the valley up here.
