Also known as Casa de la Parra (House of the Grape Arbor), this simple restaurant specializes in criollo and Vietnamese food, an unlikely combination until you remember that any foe of Uncle Sam's is a friend of Fidel's. The varied menu includes such dishes as arroz Vietnamita (with chicken, chorizo, and shrimp) and boniato cocido (boiled yam) to the more upscale grilled lobster. While the price is right, waiters can be a tad obnoxious here, and the service
in general could be much better.
