“A Cuba 5 star”

Thoms Yadira Restaurant
Restaurant details
Reviewed 4 April 2018 via mobile

My husband and I had the pleasure of getting to visit this wonderful restaurant the other night.
The restaurant was clean, great cohesive decor, and easy to locate. We ate on the balcony, which was wonderful as an evening rainstorm had washed away the days lingering heat. There is also indoor seating with air conditioning. Service was good, for Cuban standards.
The food was excellent. The prices are fair, the menu has a good selection and the portions extremely generous. My husband had the fish and I had the shrimp enchilade. The enchilade sauce is a tomato and green pepper sauce, which had a lot flavour. Our meals also came with a salad of a mix of fresh and cooked vegetables, which was very appreciated. We were offered the choice of bread or rice. We were so full from our entrees that we chose to skip dessert.
The highlight of our time at Thoms Yadira was getting to speak to the owner. Through him we found out that the restaurant has only been open for 11 months, and heard a few anecdotal stories of his experiences running the place. We will happily come back and recommend it to everyone we know going to Santiago de Cuba.

Clean, high ceilings, Breezy and full of light. Entire one side of restaurant is balcony seating overlooking the top of the cathedral.
Warm waitress.
Beautifully presented food.
$10-$20 for seafood

Grilled lobster was a tad bit too salty but not a deal breaker

Any taveller will have some negative experiences regarding dining out in Cuba. Thats unfortunately part of the deal. So if you want to have a good meal with perfect service and a good location, i can recommend this restaurant which is under german/cuban management without any doubt. A visit will heal Your suffering soul. Promise!
PS: try the Havanna Special Cocktail!

I ate here on three occassions while staying in Santiago. Each time I was delighted by the way the Lobster or seafood was infused with fruity and spicy flavours. Everything about the place was perfect. It is upstairs with a balcony overlooking the Cathedral, music from the Trova joint wafts from one side above the cacophony of the main square.
Built on the love of Thomas and his wife Yadira this was my favourite restaurant in Cuba during an 18 day trip.
