Food and service were excellent

Our waiters mum had made him learn English and he was brilliant (which is just as well because my Spanish is crap). The food and drinks were VERY well priced and so well presented it was a shame to eat the food. It is a small intimate restaurant in a quirky little ground floor location. If you in... read more

Castas & Tal is on the edge of a gritty part of La Habana Vieja, one block off the malecon, but do not be dismayed. The service is gracious and friendly, the food is delicious, and the presentation is right out of Gourmet Magazine. The value for the price is perfect. We would recommend it to anyone. If you finish... More

Situated on a corner you will find this small, simple but modern restaurant. Mama cooks in the kitchen and the food is nicely presented. Fusion Cuban cuisine and big portions at reasonable prices. No credit cards as most places in Cuba. Friendly staff.

This is going to be a short review: eat the Cordero Casto. Goooooooooood doesn't even describe it. It melts in your mouth. And it's served with such a nice and good set. You'll want to travel back to Havana just for this. I know I want to. Dying for it. And next time I am spending a day with the... More

This was my second trip to Cuba, my second visit to Havana, and my second visit to Castas & Tal (Old Havana, just across from the Malecon). And yes, just like last year I went twice as it was without doubt the best restaurant I came across in Old Havana. The food is excellent, the decor and table decorations stylish,... More

We loved it so much that we came back when we came back to Havana. I've heard they have opened another one in Verado too. Food here is delicious and generous. All the mains come with an extra plate with I think six different side others to accompain your meal. The service is excellent. Attentive, quick, and kind. Thee prices... More

Castas & Tal is my favourite restaurant in La Habana. The food is amazing and affordable, the staff are wonderful and the ambiance and food styling is perfect. I live very close to Castas & Tal and eat there at least two times a month. Perfect for a solo lunch or a date in the evening.

We are two travellers from Singapore (a country in Asia), who are currently residing in the States. We chanced upon the restaurant because we were staying at a Casa nearby, and was trying to find food at about 9.00pm. Even though the place looked pretty classy (compared to other places), the menu was surprisingly affordable, and so we decided to... More

This restaurant was close to my hotel and I walked by it quite often. It always looked rather too exclusive for me. But one evening I arrived late in Havana and was starving and tired. Besides after some time in Cuba you just hunger for some good food and some nice place to sit. So I chose to try this... More
