The spectacular cliffside, castle-hugging location helps buff up the flavors, but years of dealing with big tour groups has made El Morro's staff jaded, and the eating experience, crammed amid the busloads of European/North American 50-somethings, not particularly authentic. Not that this put off Paul McCartney, who once ate here during a whistle-stop 2000 visit (his plate is proudly mounted on the wall).

According to the waiters, the world's most famous vegetarian made do with an omelet. For meat-eaters, the complete comida criolla (Creole food) lunch (CUC$12) is a better bet, a filling spread that includes soup, roast pork, a small dessert and one drink. Take bus 212 to Ciudamar and walk the last 20 minutes, or take a taxi.
