Really good quality food, in a lovely restaurant in one of the quieter squares in Havana (at least when we were there). Nice food, nice staff.

Went to this restaurant on our last night in Havana. It's located on Old Havana and was marvelous! The service and the food were excellent and it's beautifully designed. Reasonably priced and well worth the trip. We did the appetizer to dessert route and each course was wonderful.

The Oriente is a well appointed restuarant that serves excellent food by Havana standards with excellent service. Reasonably priced and in an amazing location in old Havana. We have been to Havana twice and this is a good reliable place for dinner.

The service was excellent and the Singapore Lobster was to die for! So much so that im still raving about it five years later! a... More

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
