On our last days in Havana, we needed a decent restaurant - and not to expensive. We ate her twice. Good food. Big portions, and cheap. Recommended.

The ambiance was good, the food was great. I ordered a surf and turf platter and it was affordable and delicious.

I paid a reasonable price for a Cuban meal at La Roca, a local restaurant in Vedado. The food was very good as well as the service.

Our landlord recommended this state owned restaurant with emphasis on the "ofertas" which are menus that include drink and dessert for a vey good price. We have eaten here three times and have experienced both good and bad waiting, good and bad mojitos, fast and slow service and cold and pipping hot food. But food was always served in abundance...

The wait was a bit long. but the food was amazing. Had ropa vieja - very good! I ordered the Paella and wasn't as enthusiastic about it as the ropa vieja. their fried rice is quite good too. it's a nice place to eat to get out of the heat.

Thee are a lot of very good but quite expensive restaurants in Vedado so if you are there for a few days you might be looking for something a little more modest. Its very close to Habana Libre and Hotel Nacional and the Coppelia ice cream park. The food is fine, the service competent and you might get some live... More

Good food with great prices. If you are in Vedado and happened to be in the area check out this restaurant. Food was good with nice portions and the best part is the prices. They are very reasonable. Service was great and waiter was very attentive to our needs. It is couple of blocks from hotel Nacional.

A great restaurant very popular with the locals. Although food is not amazing compared to some places in Europe, the food was well cooked with loads of it for very little money. The service was superb with a very helpful and English-spoken waiter. Also served decent Mojitos :)
