First lunch in Cuba

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

Incredibly nice views, service excellent, the food was good. Try to get a table on the balcony, with the view.

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...

I visit Castropol for 5 years now, and it never disappoints me. Their food, service and quality is always reliable. Not so obvious in Cuba...but they seem to manage it!

during my stay in Havana the owner of Casa Particular we've stayed in reccomended me this restaurant for a dinner. The food was that good that we came back there twice and we tried some delicious meals both on the groundfloor and first floor (the whole 'Sociedad' is apparently divided in two different restaurants. Highly reccomended!

This restaurant was indicated by our guest house in Havana. We went there only for "tapas" (we asked for starters instead of meal) and good drinks. Food was great. Best octopus!! Good wine and cold beer
