Good value for Havana

Had some free time in Havana and stopped in for a bite. My wife and I both ordered pizza as we thought one would not be enough for both of us, we were wrong. Very tasty and way too much for one person. Service was okay, we had to ask twice for our bill. One thing that I didn't like... read more

Went to this restaurant as our last option on NYE. The fixed price menu ($50) was ok on paper, but not in reality. The food itself was not bad, but the service didn’t work. We were on the inside and most people were dining outside that evening. We were served dishes a bit random. Had to instruct a waiter that... More

One night good, next night same dish bad,,, poor consistency which makes for a very frustrating experience.. When I sent the spicy pasta dish back as it wasn't spicy, it came back super spicy which just wrecked the dish and my appetite,, This place is definitely a dice roll so beware folks??

Nice place we sort of stumbled on. Food was excellent as well as nice location and friendly staff. Musical group was very good with out the normal volume. Sax guy alone was worth the visit.

Good Italian inspired food - this night we just felt like Pizza and this was the place. Good service and a charming girl band. Ask for "Comandante Che".

Good location in Habana Vieja. Good music Service a bit slow and portions are not generous but the food is nice enough. A bit pricey for portion size

The location was superb and they had live music every night over Late December and early January. The seafood was good but we kept going back because they had the secret of mixing the best piñas coladas of any restaurant ($3.50CUC). The barmen were pleasant and service was relatively prompt if you sat indoors in the quiet, nicely decorated and... More

Hard to pick a place to eat in really touristy areas but we were happy with La Dominica. It was really busy so we ate inside. The food was good and the servings large. The live music came inside and played for a while which was nice. The service was good. The menu is Italian themed. As a Cuban tourist,... More

We were looking for a local place that we could eat inside and found this gem. Damask tablecloths, real utensils and cloth napkins included with great atmosphere and friendly service. I ordered a "small" pizza that was only $8.00 and it had eight slices that were topped with succulent lobster and shrimp! I couldn't finish it because it was so... More
