Numero uno in Ciego's culinary greatest all-time hits...

A bartender named Eladio invented the Coctel Don Pepe here (two shots of orange juice, 1.5 shots of white rum and half a shot of crème de menthe, stirred) back in the day...
Who needs fancy food when you're eating in the city's most atmospheric colonial building? Finally, dining in Ciego is an affair to linger over. A neat Wild West–style saloon bar opens onto a colonnaded patio behind...
A dependable national chain with affordable food and efficient service. The open-fronted sitting area on the Carretera Central is less than salubrious, but the food's adequate for a pre-bus-journey snack.
City-center joint on the 12th floor of the rather ugly Doce Plantas building. Excellent city views, a cordon bleu (chicken stuffed with ham and cheese) special and its very own Solaris cocktail.
Best of the city's new paladares, say locals. Chicken, pork, beef and various seafood dishes: house special is the filling spaghetti neopolitano .
For bread, look no further than this old stalwart, which also displays tempting sweet pastries.
This vegetable market is located in a blemished part of town below the overpass.
