Pulled up to this place around 1pm for a lunch with my mom, best friend, my cuban friend Barbara and her fiance. My first impression: what a weird looking place. Once you are led out to the terrace though: everything changes. You are sitting RIGHT BESIDE the ocean as you enjoy your meal. It couldn't be anymore beautiful. I had... More

This is advertised as Al Capone's old house, but unfortunately this is just a story to attract the tourists. Still a nice setting.

No charge to go in. The toilets in the courtyard are disgusting!!!! The attraction is the view from the rear and thast fact that it once belonged to Al Capone other than that!!

This is reported to be A Capone's rum warehouse from the American prohibition. Its situation on the beach gives a fantastic view of a stunning beach.......

fun times we had at la casa de Al. Apparently Al Pacino lived there when he was going to Varadero, so it makes it fun to eat there. I took the lobster and it was very good. Lovely time and beautiful view.

Besides, the history of the place is very appealing. We didn´t eat, though, we just went in to know the place. Anyways, food in Cuba is not that great, so......

This restaurant is located right on the beach and the food is very good.There is a replica of the old car used by Al Capone in front of the hotel. Very well kept gardens surround the place.
