Authentic food in the heart of Havana. This cute little restaurant is slightly hidden away off one of the main plazas. Very reasonably priced the staff were very attentive and the food was excellent. I would recommend the traditional lamb ropa vieja.

Great meal, well priced and service is excellent. Only cost us about 75 euros for three people for three courses (ask to pay in euro,as in all private cuban restaurants these days). The house Mojito frappe is to die for!

Our guide in old Havana recommended this place for dinner, and we decided to give it a try. It's located in a back alley in the old town, with a lot of similar looking restaurants near by. But choosing this one is a good choice....We had the ropa vieja, and it was just excelent, so was the beans and rice. Great atmosphere with the most charming street musicians in Havana standing right outside. We visited this place on our first night in Cuba, and ended up going back two weeks later, when our trip was coming to an end, just to experience that meal one more time. That's how good it was.More

Food was delicious, the starters, the main courses, and deserts, good variety, feels like eating old granma's food, made with lots of love. The Mamey and the Coconut Icecream made me go back, as well as the lamb "ropa vieja". Became one of my favorites...restaurants in Havana.More

This is a great place. Located in a cul de sac very near the cathedral and surrounded with the few restaurants stands this charming restaurant. Atmosphere is great ( at lunch time), live music playing, food is good, and prices very reasonable. Definitely recommend.

On the way to this restaurant there were lots of people trying to get you into their restaurants but not this one as there was no need. We got a nice table outside, the food was excellent, really tasty and very well presented. The service...was superb and we would definitely return. Cost us £29 for 2 people, which was for 2 starters, 2 mains & 1 G&T.More

Odds are Dona’s is a spot requiring more than one visit, because they offer too much. And that is to say nothing about their location, right in Old Havana, and just overall the feel of this place. This is precisely the kind of spot I’d...hoped to encounter when coming to Havana, a place that harkens back to the past and lets you glimpse the how delicious Cuban food can be. That they are so close to the Plaza is an added bonus.More

While Cuba is not known for their stellar restaurants, this one stood out with excellent "home style" meals and great service, and awesome frozen mojitos. Best beans we had on the trip, best milanesa and best roast pork. Can't say enough good things about it...- you may need a reservation if you plan to go around peak times.More

We had dinner there as was recommended by a local and good it was. We shared croquettes, fried chicken fajitas, ropa veijo all washed down with an excellent bottle of excellent Chilean wine. All at very reasonably prices.

Worth seeking out this little restaurant tucked away Ignacious Street. Touts call you in to the street, but take no notice. If there are a few people waiting then you’ll be sure to get in if you’ve not made a reservation as they are pretty...efficient. Lovely genuine food, we went I. The evening and we had the shredded beef which came with beans and rice, as does most traditional Cuban food 😊 Nice atmosphere and good service. Hope this review helps you make a choice for your next meal! SxMore

Restaurant à éviter. La carte indique des bières à 3 CUC mais à l'arrivée on vous sert une bière non cubaine car il n'y a plus de cubaine, pour le prix de 4 CUC. 4 CUC aussi pour le café, le plus cher de Cuba....On vous dit que vous ne payer que si vous aimez. On a servi une langouste à notre voisin où il y avait plus de mayonnaise que de langouste. Restaurant to avoid. The map shows beers at 3 CUC but on arrival you are served a non-Cuban beer because there is no more Cuban, for the price of 4 CUC. 4 CUC also for coffee, the most expensive in Cuba. You are told that you only pay if you like. They served a lobster to our neighbor where there was more mayonnaise than lobster.More

Visited this place for lunch on our first day in Havana. We had the picadillo a la habanera and the ropa veijo (and if any one can tell me why their national dish is named old clothes, I’m all ears). We proceeded to spend many...more days in Havana and then drive half the country, and we couldn’t find traditional food of that same taste and quality anywhere. So we came back for dinner when we arrived back in Havana after a couple weeks. This restaurant is really excellent. Service is superb, food is amazing, and the owner/maître d’ is accomodating and efficient. My only tip for the owners (and this goes for every restaurant Cuba pretty much), is maybe dim the lights inside a little. Or get less intense bulbs, if possible. That one thing goes a long way to creating more ambience and a better dining experience. This is a standout restaurant, not just by comparison to its competition, but in general.More

Tucked away among several restaurants, worth seeking out. High quality, traditional cuban food. Good service, menu in both Spanish and English.

Find their mail on their tripadvisor page and write them; that will be my first option if not yet in Cuba where it's better not to trust phone reservations but go personally

American dollars aren't popular in Cuba. You pay 10% extra costs when you change dollars. So better take other currency. In many hotels you can change, also at the bank. And of course at the airport, outside.
