The spectacular cliff-side, castle-hugging location does help. Years of dealing with big tour groups has made the staff jaded, and the eating experience, crammed amid the busloads of European/North American 50-somethings, isn't Cuba's most authentic, but the food is good and the setting sublime. The restaurant was good enough for Paul McCartney, who once ate here during a whistle-stop 2000 visit.

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.
