Salsa Suarez Paladar and Bar
This stylish establishment is regarded as one of the trendiest places to eat out in town and from the second you arrive, it’s easy to see why. Tucked away on a quiet and unassuming side street, Salsa Suarez is a small but sophisticated restaurant with a very modern feel. It offers diners the choice of an open air setting to enjoy their meal or the more secluded surroundings of an indoor dining room.
Looking through the menu, you quickly begin to appreciate the chef’s culinary finesse and modern approach to cooking. And it’s worth paying particular attention to his personal recommendations. These include chicken stuffed with crab and feta cheese, a fish stew cooked with a variety of spices and cider, and a fabulous beef taglieta that comes served in a delightful balsamic Modena and thin shavings of parmesan cheese.
Other standout dishes include marlin with Roquefort sauce and a lavish seafood platter for 2. There’s even the option of sushi tasting – something of a unique experience in Varadero.
Salsa Suarez also distinguishes itself by the fact it constantly rotates its selection of dishes, completely changing its menu every 15 days. This approach is based upon a philosophy of using what’s fresh and readily available, ensuring diners experience ingredients at their very best.
Beyond the impressive main courses are a selection of decadent desserts including a rich crème brûlée, a warm chocolate brownie with ice-cream, flan con calabaza and a traditional Italian tiramisu.
Salsa Suarez also has an impressive wine menu. There are numerous fine wines from Spain and Chile including 5 different types of dessert wine. The restaurant also produces its own home-made ‘lemon liqueur’ that comes highly recommended. Cocktails feature heavily on the drinks menu, too – with tempting offerings such as the exotic ‘Passionfruit Mojito’.
As you might expect, the service at Salsa Suarez is top notch. The waiting team are attentive and always on hand to attend to your every request, but still keep things relaxed enough to let you enjoy your meal in peace.
When you experience a meal at Salsa Suarez you’ll be experiencing one of the finest places to dine out anywhere in Varadero. An evening out here will almost certainly live long in the memory.
