The worse meal we had in the week we travelled around Cuba. A lovely terrace setting,with great views. We were recommended this place by our tour guide (who I assume gets a nice bonus from his recommendations). We had "steak", which was served as a well overcooked casserole. Appalling. Service was slow, with prices certainly inflated for tourists. We were... More

I would have liked to have liked this place, great location, rooftop terrace with good views. However, I found the vegetable creme inedible, the fish was not as described on the menu and it was horribly over cooked. Service was pretty brusque. Assume it mainly relies on its location and being a one visit tourist trap.

We were recommended this restaurant from several sides and we were looking foreward to eat there one evening in November. Unfortunately it was a disappointment. We had a reservation and got a table on the rooftop restaurant overlooking the street. And from then we did not receive any service unless less we strained to summon the waiter. The place was...

We were a large group of 25 and the whole experience in this restaurant was not what I would have expected. The waiter was not friendly and did not even smile. I felt like we were bothering him. This is so unlike all the other restaurants were to in Cuba. The food was just okay, nothing special. Very disappointing.

If you make it to the top. Friendly enough, but like most places in Cuba, they just can't cook. It's such a shame, but as I looked forward to my fish selection, it came terribly over cooked. Beef is ok as they mostly cook it for hours, but sadly it seemed the same with fish. But a nice view though.

During a recent visit to Havana, we went to La Moneda Cubana for dinner and ate at the terrace. The view was lovely. The food was average, somewhat bland but it was nicely presented. The service was poor. We had trouble finding a server when we needed one. The prices were very high by Cuban standards. We were not impressed... More

Our ships excursion included lunch at La Moneda...lobster was great...they gave us each a Cuban cigar and baseball bat..Nice service and roof top setting...many stairs to get to the top but worth it.

We visited this restaurant on the recommendation of two separate tour guides and a member of the staff at the hotel and were really disappointed.You pay a set amount and then choose one of five or six options of meat which go with rice.The restaurant was absolutely full of tourists and we found it to be the least authentic meal...

La Moneda Cubana Tourist trap. Unfortunately we took our hotel concierge’s suggestion to spend our last night in Havana here. He recommended it highly and even walked with us to make a reservation for 6.What a disappointment. I should have followed my gut feeling when I saw their very limited menu and high prices. They have 8 items on their... More

We were on a Fathom Adonia Cruise. On one of our tours we had a meal in this restaurant. The food was very taste and the staff great. The drinks are included in the meal. They had live entertainment. It was very enjoyable.
