I ate hear on five occasions in December 2016 and January 2017 (mostly in the downstairs restaurant, but once in the upstairs, slightly smarter place). The menu was wide, and the food and drink consistently very good. Service also pretty good. Excellent value for money.

You would think that since it is Cuba the service is their strong suit, but it's not. The waiter was argumentative, did not check no out table of 6 often enough, and the food took over 30 minutes to be brought to our table despite a restaurant clearly working at less than 50% capacity. Prices are extremely high for Cuba... More

Fine dining overlooking the Malecon, with stunning sea views certainly adds to the experience. Cuba isn't known for good food, but our meal at the Castropol was excellent. UK prices (so quite expensive for Havana), World class food, World class portions and World class service, thank you Fransisco.

Yes, it's on the malecon and it has balcony seating (full when we were there, so we had to sit inside). The staff is very efficient, but the food is mediocre, at best. Everything is a la carte, so side dishes cost extra. The dining room inside is a bit dated; looks like something from the soviet era. There is... More

Four of us stopped in for cocktails. The selection was quite good and creative, witness the Castropol. Others had excellent Mojitos and a Brandy Alexander. We sat next to the sidewalk and had a great vantage point to watch the cars cruising the Malecon.

After two weeks in Cuba I had totally given up hope on getting anything tasty to eat. Luckily, last day we ended up here. We had our meal downstairs with view of street and sea. A small and delicious appetizer on the house raised our spirits. We shared one starter in two and had one main course and dessert each.... More

Ok food, ok value, clean, decent service, location good (very good if you make a reservation) But why put bread in the ice-cream?

In the middle of a semi derelict set of buildings on the Malecon seafront. It's getting well known now, so best to book. You can eat upstairs or downstairs and there are several nice tables on the first floor balcony overlooking the Malecon. Great service. The usual range of Cuban tourist restaurant fare, with some more unusual dishes, and done... More

Castropol was so good, we ended up eating there three times! In the same building are two different restaurants; the menus are similar but the upstairs restaurant specializes in seafood whereas downstairs do woodfired pizzas in addition to their a la carte dishes. Nice restaurant, good atmosphere and friendly waitstaff. We ate the orange duck on two occasions and it... More

Good food and attentive service at a restaurant well located on the Malecon. More pricey than other good restaurants in the area but a safe choice for a reasonable meal if you don't have the time to search.
