It was almost midnight and I had just checked in to my lousy hotel , the deauville. I was quite hungry after my trip and this was the only place I found open at that hour. I had eaten there about five years earlier and...More

DONT GO. RUN AWAY. This is not a restaurant, but an extorsion desk. This has been by very, very far the worst food experience in our 3 weeks trip to Cuba, and probably in the last 10 years. We ordered fish and pork, and we...More

We found this little place in Lonely Planet and the comment was "great but why is it empty?" That was exactly our experience. We went back a second time with seasoned Cuba travellers and they said it was the best meal they had had. Everything...More

This is like the Hard Rock of Centro, mom-and-pop version. Honestly, we weren't really sure what to expect walking in here. We stayed in a casa around the corner, and always passed the friendly owners hanging out on their stoop. Once inside, we fought the...More
