Are we missing something?

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.

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

Excellent food for a good price! The bakery in the middle is probably the best in Cuba. Sit on the upstairs patio for an unreal view.

Of all the restaurants we had in Cuba, this was by far our favourite. The food, the service, the view and the price. Highly recommend it!

We stopped in at the Castropol while strolling along the Malecon. The décor was very welcoming, as was the waiter at the entrance who was trying to drum up business. We asked to sit on the terrace upstairs - what a great view! Service was attentive. There were many items on the menu. I had pork tenderloins in a honey... More

We visited this place during our previous visit about 4 years ago. We decided to give it another chance and were very happy we did, because we could finally eat something different than the staple lobster or shrimps everyone offers in Cuba (I wonder whether these are caught around the island or imported from China, like so much other food...
