Inspired by a Brazilian soap opera that was shown on Cuban television "Vale todo" cubans discovered how to make a living with something that was already a tradition "good cooking". We also got involved in that enthusiasm that coincided with the approval of the first private businesses by the government.

This is how it happened for all of us who started this endeavor.
We had a large patio and lots of enthusiasm, the rest came later. Today we are recognized by the best guides and have received the best reviews from the press.
