Been to Havana maybe 20 times and almost always eat at El Idilio. Vedado location is good from many areas. Ropa Vieja really good - companions often eat from daily specials. They take reservations - which is good during high season or peak dinner hour.

This small restaurant, is located in Vedado. The speciality is lobster prepared by their chef. We tried it and was very tasty. Many other fish dishes are available included octopus that we tried too. It's a very good compromise quality/price. If you are in Vedado...More
