Really enjoyed the street music. Sandwich was alright too. But- the band sold us a cd for 10 CUCs and when I got home, it was blank. Such is life. Dont pay for the cds!

We stopped here for a beer and sandwich while walking around in Havana. Beer was cold, ham and cheese sandwich was ok. Price was cheap! $5.45 CUC for 2 beers and a sandwich!

Old Havana. Seated outside. Live Band. Meals all very cheap. Delicious.$5 pesos or less. Beer 1 pesos. Waiter did not speak English so another one waited on us and she spoke well enough. Very accommodating to make a bigger table for 9 of us.
