Te Quedarás: Meal with El Benny
Te quedarás porque te doy cariño/ te quedarás porque te doy amor/Te quedarás cuando llegues al nido/ De mi corazón/. With this unforgettable song by Benny Moré, one of the most outstanding voices ever in Cuba, the restaurant Te Quedarás, sort of sanctuary to remember “el Bárbaro del Ritmo”, welcomes its customers.
Specifically located on Avenida 54 between 35 and 37 Sts., this place honors, in every single one of its corners, the legacy of such a great singer, definitely one of the all-time Cuban classics. Paintings, statues and photographs of “el Benny” are everywhere, as his music, sang by local musicians.
Among the cocktails you can find the most common ones, like mojtos, cuba libres and daiquiris, as well as other 47. And nothing like having your drink from a balcony, from where you can see, at your feet, one of the most popular streets in Cienfuegos, declared by UNESCO as Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
If you are looking for a nice lunch or dinner, Te Quedarás’ menu includes 66 international cuisine dishes, including the “Boulevard”, a mixture of fish and seafood.
Open from 12 m to 12 am, and daily, Te Quedarás highlights because of the culinary excellence of the chef, and, over all, for spreading, always, Benny Moré’s delicious music.
