Fodor's Expert Review Eco-Restaurante El Romero
$ Soroa and Las Terrazas Vegetarian
A rarity in carnivorous Cuba, this is a vegetarian restaurant with an innovative take on local organic and wild ingredients. You enter under a green arbor smothered by blue flowers and descend a few steps to an intimate, two-tier restaurant with a valley view. On the menu: tempura vegetables, creative salads, a bean pancake accompanied by a stuffed tomato, or the house specialty: "boliche," mashed yuca and sweet potato balls filled with vegetables in a cream sauce. There's also a vegetable paella. Portions come in three sizes for different-size appetites: small, medium, and large, and are priced accordingly, making it easy to sample and share.
