Casa del Gobernador

Housed in an imposing and impressive typical Cuban building, with high ceilings and marble pillars, Casa del Gobernador is one of the city's very best restaurants, recommended as much for the food as for its picturesque setting.


Cuban food, like Caribbean food more generally, depends highly on rice, black beans and fried plantain, usually accompanied by a bit of meat or chicken to complete a hearty and wholesome meal. Santa Clara has an abundance of typical restaurants, as well as international restaurants serving the best of world cuisine.
