Lebanese restaurant on the Calle Officios. Has a nice courtyard, with trees, yelling parrots, enough shade to have a pleasant stay. The food is good: nice couscous, tajines, or big vegetarian meals. Some spicy, but all nice tasting.

Eating here was really enjoyable after finishing a tour of Cuba and eating nothing but fried chicken and rice. Combo plates are excellent value.

Great to find somewhere different in Havana, with this Arabian retsaurant, where we ate twice during our stay. The mezza platters (also available in veggie option) were superb, if very different from what you'd get in the uk. The lovely courtyard setting was relaxed, with...More
