This was the worst meal we had in Havana on so many levels.. From service, which was friendly by the way, to food, it was some god awful.. It's consistently shocking how bad the food is in Cuba.. Communism killed the entire food culture.. It's...More

Stopped here for dinner one evening as our restaurant of choice was full. What a mistake! The food was absolutely dreadful. The beef was so tough it was inedible... we could not eat any of the meal apart from some bread and rice. The meat...More
