The food I had was great and the mojitos was really good! The waiters were really friendly, they even recommended a show for night time. It is one of the best restaurants in old Havana. Definitely recommend.

It’s a little bit hard to find this restaurant and not in the salubrious of locations but an absolute gem. We had a fantastic meal and thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance of this great little restaurant. The staff were really friendly. Well worth checking out.

San Juan Bar and Grill is in a section of Old Havana that is somewhat off the tourist's beaten trail. Their cuisine ingeniously combines local ingredients in novel dishes that you do not find elsewhere--try, for instance, their tempura of "aji cachucha" which is unique...More

We were seated straight away but it was mid-week. I would recomment booking if it is the weekend as it is in the top 10 trip advisor it will be popular, especially if a cruise comes in.
