I visited this bar a few years ago, and had been trying to track it down online since. I finally found it the other day on Facebook, and I had to write a review. Really great atmosphere, friendly staff, and, best of all, the house...daiquiri - Daiquiri 3J - was literally the best drink I've ever had in my life. The whole menu was great, really, but this drink really stood out. The bar was kind enough to share their recipe with me, too, and I've been making them at home ever since. Highly recommend stopping in for a beverage (or several dozen), if you're in the Viñales area. Neil (from Toronto)More

Great spot on the main road, lively atmosphere and welcoming staff. As other reviews have suggested, the rum may well be left on the table so that you can top up your pina coladas as the evening progresses. Very good value – I think we...paid about 20CUCs a head, drinks included.More

Was recommended to come here for great tapas and cocktails. Probably the best option in Vinales for light food. Service was quick. Great G&TS. I ordered the rice and beans and a salad which was quite basic. But it’s Cuba so I should get over...it. Great to people watch here. So enjoy!!More

Great spot for lunch or dinner, or just for afternoon drinks. The food was excellent with good variety. Best Mojitos I had in Cuba. Service was first rate - attentive, professional and helpful. The small crafts artisans market on the adjacent street was an extra...bonus. Would return here anytime!More

We cam back for a great breakfast because of the night before. We ordered two Pina Coladas with 7-year-old Habana rum, and they brought them out, then came over with the bottle and the cinnamon shaker. "Just bring the bottle back when you're done," she...said. But the pour-your-own rum was just the icing on the cake: These are hands down the smoothest and tastiest Pina Coladas I've ever had.More

Sit down enjoy a drink and tapas and connect with home. Order a Piña Colada and you get an entire bottle of rum (really) to make it as strong as you like. Sit outside and watch the traffic go by. Great WiFi (Etecsa card needed)...but stronger signal than the “free WiFi” bars. The best of Viñales!More
