Varadero 60

Top choice international in Varadero

Upping the ante considerably in Varadero's new private-restaurant scene is this fine-dining establishment that exudes an aura of refinement not seen since Benny Moré last cleared his throat and shouted ‘Dilo’! Lobster and solomillo (steak) are the house specialties, best washed down with some excellent Chilean and Spanish wine and rounded off with one of the quality cigars or rums on offer.

In almost a decade of repeat visits to Cuba, we’ve rarely seen such impeccable service. There’s double meaning in the name – it’s on Calle 60 and its theme is 1960s advertisements, which adorn the walls of the elegant interior.
