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.

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.

The gastronomic experience is the following: breaded meat with LOTS of oil and bland taste. They don't offer any fresh juice nor anything other than the canned drinks. Price is affordable but even too high for the quality of the food. The AC is on constantly providing a 16 Celsius all the time. No toilet paper...

Great restaurant for excellent value. Massive sandwiches and burgers for 2-3 CUC and set meals including 1 drink and dessert for less than 5 CUC. We stayed in a hotel close by for 1 night and went to La Roca 3 times. :)

Previously one of our favourite restaurants in the city, La Roca has undergone some changes which left us scratching our heads... and walking out the door. We normally eat here every year, as it is near the hotel where we usually stay. This time, we walked in to find the decor completely changed. The place is now dark and cramped,... More
