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.

Vast menu and reasonable prices. Lots of locals including families. They even have entertainment on certain nights of the week.

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 :)

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local but, frankly, it was pretty disappointing. The consensus view is that one does not go to Cuba for a culinary experience but even by Cuban standards the food here left a lot to be desired. Tough steak, overcooked, tasteless floppy vegetables. Masses of overcooked, sticky pasta served with a dollop of... More

La Roca is a state-run restaurant which, like several others we visited, favors a black and white decoration theme, which means it's not the most attractive lace I have ever eaten. However, when food comes to the table, I forget about the look. We were there as two couples, and we all ordered the langouste.This delicious, lobster-like crustaceon was once... More

We were starving and La Roca was near our hotel. From the outside it looked like cabaret and my husband at first didn't want to enter with our daughter (5). But as there weren't any restaurants around, we entered :). Once there,it looks like you are in 80's, from the piano corner to tables and all the whole place in... More

Strange place this. Looks like it's popular with the locals. Decor is unusual, to say the least, all the chairs are draped in pink fabric like at a wedding. Plenty staff around, but even though they had menu outside in English, they didn't when you sat down, only Spanish?This made choosing food rather difficult, but to be fair, the waitress... More
