Wished we had found it sooner

Ate here our last night in Habana. Clean environment and nicely set tables. Efficient service in Spanish or English. Good selection of drinks and food with good pricing. Shared four appetisers and all four were nicely presented and excellent flavour. Highly reccomend.

We were staying in a casa on Galiano street and must have passed Castas & Tal at least 10 times (it was always full!) before deciding to stop in for dinner on our last night in Havana. Their menu has a nice variety of foods and items we hadn't seen at many other restaurants/paladares, so it was a welcome change.... More

Small portions but fulfilling. Consistent quality. We started with a seviche. It was decent. We also ordered ropa vieja and some other meat dish. Both were very good. Attentive service and welcoming servers. Cool decor. Well located.

First time at this place highly recommended. Food was right in the center of Havana expectations..good not great. Chicken breast in orange sauce was made well, and a pasta with vegetable dish was excellent. Close proximity to the street is a bit distracting, but worth a stop.

We stumbled on this restaurant one afternoon as we walked back to our casa. Attractive industrial chic design in grey and red offset by black and white linens. Attentive but a little uneven in the service. Shrimp was out this evening but the two different styles of roast chicken we tried were excellent.

Very cosmopolitan restaurant serving modern Mediterranean Carribean fusion food at reasonable prices. Good wine, desserts and service, a hot tip for gourmands.

Located in Havana Central, just one block away from the shore or “Malecón”. As soon as we got into the city, we got a referral about this small but exquisite place. From the service, to the presentation of the food and drinks, the complete experience was excellent. The mojitos were $2.5, we usually get a good one at $12 USD….... More

I usually stay in Hotel Deuville when I am visiting Habana and this charming little restaurant is very close by. I am a very fussy eater and often I worry what is on the Menu of most Restaurants. No worries here though. A very interesting Menu. The staff are always helpful in making the choice of food that will suit... More
