I've been visiting this place with associates and friends, and every time I have the sensation that the service is not aware of the clients, you have to rise your voice to be attended because they are talking or texting. Food is good and fresh many times.

The Sociedad Cultural Asturiano is not exactly a paladar but it's not state-run either. Apparently the social organizations of descendants from the Spanish provinces have the right to turn their facilities into paying restaurants. SCA is located right on the Malecon. Get one of the tables on the balcony so you can look out over the ocean and hear the... More

Fantastic venue and great service from all the staff. Very impressive particularly taking into account that service is NOT one the assets that Cuban venues have. However, everything here was great, from the food to the service, from the staff to the facilities. We enjoyed a lot and we do recommended it to all the travellers that come to Havana... More

Just of Parque Central, 3 restaurants in one building. On the ground floor is the Italian restaurant La Xana, which we ate in many times. The food is easy and well presented - excellent salads, pizzas, pasta - the prices are very good and best of all the staff are helpful, friendly and happy to talk. We thoroughly enjoyed our... More

I took a group of 37 people on an academic trip to Cuba, and I had to manage various tastes and food restrictions. To accomplish this and still manage to get memorable results, I had to work ahead of time to get the right menu, price, day, and time. The chef at La Terraza worked with us, and delivered. The...

La Teraza is the restaurant onthe last floor.Expensive and the service does not excell.There are 2 guitar players,who play very good.The young one is a gipsy looking called "Ruben".If aybody sees that scum, (at least), send me a picture of him, please! The restaurant at the first floor is by far the best!!!!!!!!!!!!

The people from Asturia seem to be responsible for a lot of very good things in Havana. I don't quite know what their relation is with Cuba but they deserve every support they can get. Check out their restaurants !

We loved this bar - unfortunately we only discovered it on our final night! Great cocktails at 2cuc, lovingly made by the barman. Cheap local non alcoholic drinks for the kids too! Quiet, small, intimate. As you enter the building, just ask for the bar and you will be shown up in the lift. Don't miss it!

The grill chef did a superb job on all plates (except the chicken fish combo was overpowered by conflicting flavors--not his grilling fault, I assume). Special soup w/ chiles and shredded beef quite tasty combo as was the grilled octopus and grilled vegetables--all very well done. Wait staff needs to lighten up a bit and stop trying to sound so...
