Unexpected Delight

We had asked our taxi driver for a restaurant that locals enjoyed. There was some anticipation on where we would wind up. Cuba is like a box of chocolates and you really never know what you'll get.

It's off the beaten track but worth hunting down. We found it by mistake (we were hungry and it looked like it might be a restaurant so we went in). We were the only tourists there. We had an excellent pizza in a charming air conditioned restaurant (while all the other tourists were sitting in the sun and paying twice... More

This is the best restaurant we had dinner at in Havana. It's privately owned. Food and service were spectacular. Very good prices. Cocktails for 1.5 CUC. Try the Ropa Vieja.

After being taken before with tourist traps Havana restaurants that have prices higher than in Canada, I did my research this time and found this gem on TA. It is a little out of the way, on a side street, but very close to the Capitolio and the Habana Vieja tourist mecca. We went for an early dinner, so the... More

Great great ceviche. It is a small restaurant but very good service. I felt like I had to show my I.D. when I walked in because theres a somewhat "bodyguard" standing outside at all times. Sangria was awesome there as well. There were a few things on the menu that they didn't have, but other than that it was a... More

Best Pina Colada & Ropa Vieja. Our friends of Havana brought me there for lunch and then I have visited this El Viejo Enrke again 3 more times. Staff are friends (though some does speak English) and foods are great.

We were looking for a restaurant close to the hotel and we were recommended El Viejo Enrike and we were not disappointed. Booking is probably essential as quite small and appeared very popular with the locals. Food was excellent, service impeccable and a wide choice of drinks all in all a very pleasant evening. Surrounding streets seem a bit rundown... More
