Great food, great service, low cost = Winner!

Title says it all. They served our large group family style from some of their specialties and they all were terrific. The staff was very attentive and friendly. Was very pleasantly surprised by the low bill at end of this fine meal.

we were at the hotel nacional and LA roca is just 5 mins from the hotel. At first even though I had read reviews I thought it was a night club, stick with it is a restaurant. Used by locals and tourists alike, gargantuan portions and cheap, 3 adults with drinks equivalent of £32! Yes 32. We ate here twice... More

I find that in life you sometimes can think your right but on reflection you realise that you have been a complete fool (polite term). I dined at La Roca with my partner and had decent service (possibly a bit slow). When we ordered our drinks it “got lost in translation” as my partner ordered 2 for 1 Pina Colada... More

Classy inside, piano player and magician for entertainment, large portions of flavorful food. I recommend the enchilado de camarones. Walking distance to hotels in Vedado.

You can eat a full lunch for only 4 CUCs, including a drink, water, soda or beer, and ice cream. Best deal in Vedado.

I had dinner one night here, the lobster was pretty good, portions are big enough. There different alternatives, you could have a great meal for 5 cuc. There's a band playing later in the night, so it is absolutely worth it.

This place was highly regarded which is why I bothered going. It in fact is the worst place I ate in the city. Believe me when I say that this place is awful. I am comfortable eating at local spots, and had many fine snacks and meals in Havana that were not from trendy upscale places, but this place was... More

A local recommended this to us. Located in Vedado. Large restaurant, larger plates of food. Bring an appetite or a friend to share a plate. Good food, good prices. Most of the customers appeared to be locals and not tourists.

Not haute cuisine, but solid Cuban fare, competitively priced. And very good mojitos for 2 CUC! We came back a second night just for drinks in the bar and enjoyed the non-touristy atmosphere there.
