    Restaurante el Cubano: A local's favourite- best seafood!

    by Kindra Written Jan 19, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A standard, very inexpensive, ultra delicious restaurant on the main strip facing the long line of bars that litter the beach. Good service and always packed with locals- a sign that it is a good value and has great food!

    Favorite Dish: Encocado!!! It is a local specialty: fresh seafood in coconut curry sauce, served with a side of rice and patacones (smashed, salty and fried plaintain)

    You can choose what you want to be in your encocado: shrimp, filete of fish, mixed, crab, lobster etc.

    It was $4.50 for encocado with fish and $7 for crab (though watch for whether it is in season or not- it is illegal to fish and serve lobsters and crabs during breeding season)

    The batido de coco is super good too, almost like a desert!

    You can either go into town, a short ride in a bicycle-taxi for about $2.00 and enjoy a decent and inexpensive meal, or eat in one of the many restaurants on the boardwalk. We found all the ones we chose acceptable, however my husband always insisted in seeing the live fish or seafood that we wanted before and while been cooked.
    For breakfast the street vendors offering fresh ceviche for $4.00 was a steal!

    Favorite Dish: We enjoyed many local dishes made of fresh fish and black shell clams!!!
