The food is fine but nothing startling (except the generous portions), but the setting is sensational. We had a table on a deck right on the cliff face overlooking a valley. We were under trees with a light breeze so the temperature was just pleasantly warm. Taking two hours over lunch we enjoyed the panoramic view, the graceful turkey vultures... More

Amazing sunset! It was right next to Hotel Jazmines and the sunset was even better than if we stayed at the hotel. You can see the sunset right over the mountains.

Lovely food, with great service. There are chickens running around the restaurants and cats, so not for one who doesn't like animals. Lovely mojitos strong and it was so cheap.

We had dinner here and is indeed a little bit like eating in a tree house (with actual tables though, of course). The food was great and view over the valley even better; would come here again.

We enjoyed dinner on a slightly precarious wooden platform overlooking the fantastic Vinales valley watching the sun go down, an amazing and unforgettable experience

You can not get a better view from your table in a restaurant in Viñales. This small restaurant has made some balconies under the trees, overlooking the Vi!nales vally. The menu's are explained verbally by the waitress. No matter what you order, you will get a soup first, then the main course accompanied with vegetables and baked banana's. Finally a... More
