For us this is the best restaurant in Cuba. Wherever we went, the food was the same and after few days becomes really boring. I had enough of red snapper for the whole year :)
Al Medina was such a surprise. We were so used to getting average/poor food in restaurants, that here, our eyes couldn't believe how beautiful the plate looked like, with so many different tastes in it but incredibly delicious. We went twice and had the same thing, I think it was called chicken platter, 9 CUC.
I understand people complaining about slow service but that's almost everywhere in Cuba, you just learn how to deal with it. I don't like it too, but the food is so good here that Im not gonna complain :) Give them a little reminder once in a while.
I guess the waiters don't speak very much because they don't really know English. One of them plays in the band, they sound very nice. Buy their CD, it's the best CD we bought from Cuba so far.
