This is an attractive setting and the staff were attentive and efficient. The food was plentiful and well presented but unfortunately, I can't give any higher rating as I had food poisoning from the shrimp and fish meal. It was definitely there I got it as I hadn't eaten anywhere else earlier in the day. am normally very wary of eating shrimp abroad but I'd tried them elsewhere a couple of days before without problem. It was a pretty nasty experience so if you do go, I'd say to avoid the shrimp.

We stayed only one night in Santa Clara and this was our choice for the dinner - not regretting! Very pleasant atmosphere with a subtle life music and very good food.

Wow, nice place, great service and best Ropa Vieja we ever had!
We returned here for our last dinner in Santa Clara because we enjoyed food, drinks and music so much!
Go here for dinner, it’s the best - promised!

Chose 'Florida' based on starred recommendation in LP. The setting is a stunner, with nicely set tables in a quaint courtyard (surrounded by guestrooms of same named 'hotel'/casa).
The food is seafood-heavy, but when enquired our server said they can accommodate vegetarians; we received a fried rice dish with salad and drink.
All good.

We visited this restaurant on the single night we stayed in Santa Clara. It is set in a beautiful garden courtyard and serves excellent, good value food. The staff, who spoke good English, were friendly and attentive and there was nice background music initially provided by a guitarist who was later joined by a singer which really complemented the lovely setting. We ordered a main course and fresh grapefruit and salad were provided as starters. A nice start to the evening before we went off to see a dance performance at the Teatro de Caridad.
