We went to this restaurant several times during our vacations ! I have to say, that the food there, is really good! The quality and the service make together an excellent combination! The prices are very reasonable. I tried many times sea-food like lobster, prawns and fish and i was completely satisfied. The environment and the design inside is very... More

It is located in plaza San Francisco de Asis, which is a lovely square! Excellent service and music (pianist).The food is delicious and of good quality and an extensive wine list. At the end they offered me a red rose..very charming! Thank you.

If you are looking for a cheap but charming restaurant, this is the place. This "paladar" is found in a very nice patio, and the food is typically Cuban.

I have had many meals here over the years for my work. It's a great place to bring a group, and they always seem to love it. The staff there goes over and above the call of duty, to insure that every guest has a great experience! This might be the place to have a steak, while eating in Havana.... More

Mar 18 After our guide pointed to Cafe del Oriente was where we would have lunch, our attention was focused on this place as we toured Old Havana. Well-located in "ground zero," we were treated to a 3-course lunch upstairs, consisting of a starter of smoked salmon, filet of beef (from Canada) and potatoes, and ice cream cake. It ended... More

We were recommended to this restaurant by our transfer company and had dinner prior to going to the Tropicana. It is a very "up market" restaurant, beautifully laid tables, attentive staff and divine food (which is extremely hard to find anywhere else in Cuba) I asked for a main course of one of their starters which was no problem for...

We had pork with honey, lamb with rosemary, hamburger, tuna sandwich, tuna steak, shrimp and lobster salad, octopus salad...(we ate here 3-4 times) and everything was great! And we had the best Mojitos there! Even the service was fast!! Prices are higher than the other restaurants we went to but everything was great and worth the price!

We stopped in here several times for a cocktail. Good service and not expensive. Its great to sit outside with a mojito, to cool off and watch the world go by.
