El Mojito

Reviewed By Lorraine480

Hi went to this restaurant with family and friends booked by our hotel unfortunately they recommended this and arranged it for us all tho the food was good it was really expensive around £50 each for a main course and a few drinks they then charged government tax on top of the bill around £90.00 seeing that is not a government owned restaurant this was a con didn’t find out to we got back to hotel. All the staff try to get you to go there as they get kick backs don’t mind people maki g a bit on the side but very annoyed as we looked after all the staff and this was not that great of a place much better in town I suggest book your own restaurant as where ever they recommend there’s a high price to pay

Our group of 5 went for dinner one evening in December based on our local friends recommendation. A little sceptical at first, but the restaurant has a great bbq and dinner selection. We all had the fish bbq special that came with two fish, lobster, prawns, rice and salad. Huge portions, very filling, and very tasty. Drinks were good, the service excellent, and the entertainment very talented. Atmosphere was interesting, and the place clean for the most part. The washroom needs to be fixed immediately! Overall things were great, but a little pricy, and the washroom was broken and unkept.We would return, but wiould skip the washroom visit.

The food was good. Not exceptional but good. It had flavor and our meal was quick. The waiter and place was a great attempt to making you feel special. With so many fast food and beer joints on this strip it was good to have a decent meal for so little cost. I would definitely return.

Kike-Kcho

Reviewed By Lin-n-Tan

After an excellent meal, in terms of quantities, quality and value, at another restaurant in the Marina, we brought forward our plan to try Kick-Kcho. Thank goodness we didn't "save" it for our last night as planned.We had checked out the menu - twice - over the past few days, noting it was pricey but finding (under chef's specials) the seafood BBQ for 2/4/6 people which presented on the menu as reasonable value.So we turned up, ordered drinks to begin. Specifically ordered TuCola (local brand, not bad) for the kids. Imported Coca Cola was delivered (and charged at 250% of the local brand). My rum and Coke had little to no Coke in it. And that was after they brought me a duplicate of my wife's white rum and Sprite, not what I ordered. There was no confusion in ordering. The duplicate drink was also charged.When we attempted to order the seafood BBQ, we were advised "not available". Aaaah, that old trick. We were used to that from our hotel all inclusive a la cartes. "But we can offer you lobster at $30 dollars/kg".. Yeah, yeah, we know this trick by now.So we said, "ah, that's ok, we'll just have a drink here then, no problem".Response "oh no sir, don' leeeeve, ley me call my bohsss".Hey presto, all of a sudden the seafood BBQ was on..We ordered 2 starters, bacalao (salt cod) based. Both good, actually, but the stuffed peppers one was the best. We also ordered a side of rice (no rice/salad or any side coming with the main), the only rice dish not described with a heavy sauce was "rice with lobster", so we ordered that.We hovered around the live lobster cage to make sure we weren't chosen the dead ones from the bottom (by this stage we had a bad vibe about the place).When the main was delivered, the rice with lobster turned out to be paella in a heavy tomato base: exactly what we didn't want, including frozen clams and green lip mussells (exactly what we don't like). So we didn't get what we ordered, presumably too much effort to boil up some plain rice and run some butter through it.The seafood BBQ itself was sort of OK. It included two very small lobsters (very good), 2 small whole fish (not especially fresh but acceptable) 4 local shrimp (frozen) and a handful of the muddiest clams I've ever had. To be honest I was pretty nervous that those clams might come back and haunt us, although in the end no one was ill.We skipped dessert.Total cost for 2 starters, a side of rice, main course (2 person portion), 2 cokes, 4 rum drinks..... $127.50. Waaaaaaay too much for what we received, central London prices. And it wasn't very nice. Last time we were in Cuba, we frequented a little beach-side grill called "Lennys". And we KNOW the Cuban government sponsors many such beach-side grills in many different resorts, where a lobster tail, fish fillet, rice and salad cost less than $10 dollars.Feel scammed to be honest: the worst possible outcome of public/private shared enterprise.

The lobster was very good here.....price was only $15.00 CUC. The filet mignon was also good here. This restaurant is right across the street from Josone Park in Varadero.

Probably the worst restaurant that we visited. Its a fairly large open air (no outer walls) facility with good atmosphere and open space between tables. The singers (4 good looking women and 1 guy) are pretty good but only sing two songs at most before they ask for tips and take a 30 minute break. Service was so so. We asked for bread and got a basket of hard dinner rolls. Literally, my wife couldn't stab them with a fork. Otherwise the food was good. They use the same menu every other restaurant uses. The restrooms are probably a 50 yard walk across a very dimly lit lawn.

Reviewed By rnr636

Would not have know this restaurant existed if not for the hosts advertising it on the sidewalk. We were not disappointed. A quaint little spot tucked in the back of the park. There are multiple stairs to climb to gain access. Seating is on a covered patio.We had the Lobster lunch as most others did. A beverage with or without alcohol, soup, lobster and clean shrimp (without their little heads still on, thank goodness), rice, beans, salad, dessert and coffee for $18 CUC. Or the Chicken with cheese & above sides for $14.85. Both were excellent.Staff were wonderful. Bathroom was not the greatest but that's Cuba. And the grounds were beautiful.
