Great building, amazing staircase, impressive art. We were seated at the balcony. We had lobster and fish. Nicely presented and tasteful. Starters were fine. Service was good. Expensive for Cuban standards but well worth it.

I think you should be safe! I had a pork dish and my wife had the ropa vieja and both had no nuts. In general, I don't recall seeing nuts in many dishes throughout Cuba with the exception of desserts.
