We stopped by here for drinks while we were sightseeing. We stopped and looked at the menu which had very similar prices for the area. There was a little group outside playing live music which caused us to stop there for a drink. We had the usual mojito and cuba libre. Prices were average for the drinks (at around $6... More

Nao is tucked away at the end of a small street right near the waterfront. I ate at one of several tables outside, but there are others inside. I began with the "Huge" mojito, which was and was pretty good (a little fizzy). A band of two guys and a tall rather lovely woman was setting up feet away from... More

Found this little cafe on a hot day in a side alley. The drinks were amazing, so cheap and the seafood paella was wonderful. A small group of muscians played beside us Cuba music. Wonderful way to spend the afternoon

Nao! Our first, last & best meal in Havana! The food really is excellent; we ate at several places in Havana (including fine dining at La Guarida) and i have to say Nao is much better. Nao lies on a charming little street in old Havana (Havana Vieja) just off a square with cute little antique stalls. Super friendly smiling... More

We had been wandering around and thought we would take a break for coffee. We happened to walk past this bar and a man asked us if we wanted coffee so we sat down. We were not offered a menu - and in hindsight we should have asked. We ordered 2 coffees which were nice. We asked for the bill... More

NAO was recommended by our Tour Guide so we thought we would give it a go. The food was edible, but incredibly salty and the Mixed Seafood Platter that I shared with my son was overcooked. The restaurant is on two floors and it is small. There were more musicians than there were diners and because it is a small... More

We had two meals here, one in the evening, Langosta and the other lunch. Neither disappointed. Very friendly staff and lovely decor. The restaurant is on two levels and also some tables out in the street.

Located near the sea wharf on a small side street in Old Havana, this restaurant in a restored 200-year-old building was my favorite place during my three-day stay. I had a friend red snapper dish that was absolutely out of this world. There is an upstairs, downstairs and outside eating area. I ate upstairs, but the whole restaurant had a... More

Our group of 6 had lunch here & enjoyed. I had a salad & my husband had Ropa Viejo which he really enjoyed. They were out of lobster that day. We felt the prices were reasonable but not cheap. They serve beer, wine & cocktails.

We went because of the ranking but.... My chicken breast was closer to shoe leather. I could not cut it with a knife so my dinner went to the resident cats. It didn't even resemble chicken, I should have taken a picture.
