A pearl next to ruins

We had spotted this place on the sea front and were impressed by the smart waiters who ushered us up to the glass fronted balcony. a great sea view and of the road with the amazing old cars. I had delicious fish rolls which were washed down with natural lemonade.

We had two great meals here recently. The restaurant is in a great location facing the Malecon in Central Havana. I find downstairs very noisy because of the traffic and prefer the upstairs balcony. The service and food was good. We had some tasty and fresh fish. Two courses and drinks set us back 38 CUC. Good wine list available... More

Although the prices seemed really high compared to other restaurants in cuba, they were so cheap compared to similar food at home. We enjoyed a snack of ceviche seafood and crab croquettes and a cold beer each. Really reasonable and worth our walk to try to find this place.

This place gets some great reviews but we didn't see why. There were a lot of well-heeled Cubans ostentatiously splashing out on too much food and expensive drink but the meal we had was nothing to write home about. Not bad, just averagely average.

When in Havana it will come a moment when you will get bored with the usual staple of pork rice and beans,chicken rice and beans,"fish"rice and beans and even lobster rice and beans,you should head strait to the Malecon and have lunch or dinner at The Castropol,try to get a table on the balcony with sea views...it's magical!Service is better...

Take a terrine shrimps and fish, then a fish (emperador or cernia) with pesto, plenty of white wine and round with a rum Seleciones de Maestro. In this way, sitting in the balcony, are you going to have the very best La Habana can give : good food and an excellent service.

Great location overlooking the Malecon. This was right down from our hotel so we stopped. Very well maintained, neat and tidy and good service. The food was fine, but nothing memorable. Ask for a balcony seat if it's available and warm enough, other than that have a drink on the balcony.

We were here while on a People-to-People trip from the United States. US citizens are not allowed to travel freely while in Cuba by the US government. So, our group had to go to this restaurant together as part of our tour. We sat on a covered balcony overlooking the Malecon and the ocean. The view was stunning. Our servers... More
