Description: La Casa restaurant is the result of a wide family heritage and also a dream came true.It's been more than 18 years since the day we opened to the public in our Californian stylish house, built in the 1950's. Our desire was to become a family restaurant, where guests could enjoy the authentic Cuban food, cooked in our kitchen following the recipes for Cuban food, among those a large number of our family heritage recipes.

“A hidden treasure in Havana!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Came on Thursday - for Sushi Thursdays!

Miso Soup - was good however the base is a Sazon - its really tasty however its not authentic - worth trying.

Sushi - the Salmon is Lox type processed salmon (remember it's Cuba!) it was really tasty, the rice was good.

There was a white fish, didn't really like it as it was to stringy -

The ginger was FABULOUS! If it not as good it may be better than most places serve in the NY/NJ region. I kept asking for more!

Wasabi and soy sauce were good!

Ordered the Ceviche Peruano - Authentic taste, raw fish cooked in lemon this was to die for!

Service was absolutely wonderful - the waiter, chef, manager went beyond their way to make me feel like a respected client.

**Note there is a bar on the second floor with music, and Hookah the charge is $15 the flavors are limited, however if you love Hookah bring sealed tobacco & and plastic mouthpiece and they'll let you use it!

Thanks for your feedback. Yes, Thursday is one of the most anticipated days of regulars at La Casa, because it is dedicated to the exoticism of Japanese food, from our kitchen, and the challenges sometimes achieve the desired supplies in Cuba comforts us to know that left pleased. Our seviche has the approval of our clients, and personal attention is something that sets us apart. We hope that you can return and take other dishes.

“Trip to Havana”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

In my recently trip to La Havana, I had the opportunity to eat at La Casa Restaurant. The environment was very welcoming and pleasant. The staff was very attentive, especially our server Kirenia. I was completely satisfied with our dinner. I recommend this restaurant to everyone.

“Finest restaurant in Cuba!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

Hum char dost is restaurant mein kahne ke liye gaye the, is jaga ka khana zabardast tha, price bhi bohot acha tha, service bhi bohot achi, owner bohot friendly hai, humara hotel kha khana bakwass tha is restaurant ka khana to kisi hotel ke sath compare bhi nahi kar saktey! Hum recommend kartey hain ke jo bhi Havana mein jaye LA CASA mein khana khaney jae! VIVA LA CASA DE ALEJANDRO !! :D

As requested by Alejandro we wrote the review in Hindi hahaha.

So in short, we 4 friends were fed up of the hotel food which was tasteless and crappy, from Varadero we went to Havana, and our guide took us to this place promising it was Cuba's Finest, once we arrived there, everything was classy, decor was amazing, we were greeted by the owner himself which is rare in other places!!! He had some fun talk with us, served us with a Coconut Hookah, the entrance home made bread was amazing, the food itself is worth every CUC you will pay for, we had a great meal, desert was amazing, we took pictures with Alejandro and gave a generous tip because every second of the service was impeccable!!! Before leaving we took pictures with Grandma :D, Alejandro's mom! We strongly suggest everyone visiting Havana to go eat at LA CASA!

“Average at BEST”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

My finacee and I were taken to this restaurant and told this was the best in CUBA. The food was really average and an above average price and did not feel the quality or value for what we spent was there. The air conditioning was not turned on until the end of our meal and our server did not understand a lick of English and it was very difficult to covery what we really wanted. I would compare this place to a Red Robins not a fine dining place.

Hi, really very sorry that your experience with us was not the best. Generally our customers leave very pleased by the quality of the meal, and for services. I do not understand what could have happened at least poque our staff is fluent in English. We invite you to repeat the experience, and surely will be very pleased. We would love to try to satisfy the palate of you and your fiancee, like many customers who decide for La Casa
