Fodor's Expert Review Casa de Don Tomás
Despite the bevy of new eateries along the main street, this is still the classiest place in town, set in the most charming of Viñales's oldest houses. The white clapboard house, circa 1889, has neat, blue trim and shutters, and guests enter along a garden path under an arbor of vines. Both the excellent traditional food and the charming service make this place memorable. Diners can choose a table on the front veranda, in the garden terrace, or in the interior dining rooms decorated with sepia vintage photos. The delicias de Don Tomás, a rice casserole with ham, pork, chicken, lobster, and sausage, is a favorite, as is the tasajo a lo guajiro (shredded beef in a criollo sauce). The signature cocktail here is the Trapiche, a refreshing blend of pineapple juice, rum, and honey with a sugarcane swizzle stick.
