Christmas Eve had a special menu, which combined fresh fish with veggies in a very tasty sauce, and of course had starter and dessert, all of good quality. The staff, especially Janet, was very professional and looked after us in an friendly, honest and discreet way. This made for a very welcome contrast with the smooth-talkers in other places, where...

I had 3 dinners at this restaurant and was satisfied with the food. Very good waiters speaking fluent English. Cosy outside area. Italian style pizza and vegetable salad was a tasty alternative after more then 2 weeks on "local" food.

What a combination! - not the usual repeated music you often get in Cuba but great jazz style from excellent musicians backing a super vocalist - all supported by huge lobster portions at a reasonable price.

A nice break from much of the other food in Cuba -- solid Italian food in a nice setting. Pasta and pizza is good. In another city however, would probably be viewed as just average, at best. Service good, live music -- not a bad choice at all, but just not a lot "extra" to rave about in my opinion.

We have been there 4 times. Great service. The best pizza in cuba! and the pasta is not over-cooked as most likely to find in cuba...

La Dominica provides excellent food in a lovely setting. On fine evenings the al fresco dining (effectively on the street!) provides a great ambience. Donna and I dined there a few times and at all times the food and service were excellent. The restaurant has a god range of Spanish and Chilean wines and live music.

This was a very nice Italian with friendly staff, great location and very reasonable prices. The pizzas were lovely and fresh and the veal with pasta was absolutely amazing.

We sat outside, it was a beautiful day, the pasta gave me the energy that I needed to get me through my walk for... More
