Really good vibe, great food and great prices. So much better than the bigger establishments with staff stationed outside to entice you in.

We had amazing tacos, nachos and frozen daiquiris here. Food was super fresh and tasty. The cafe is full of character and the staff were very friendly

El Dandy is amazing. Its so good, we went twice because the staff were amazing, the drinks were outstanding and the service was on point. Unfortunately a member of our family had a medical issue while enjoying drinks here, and the staff were so quick...to arrange transportation to the hospital. I would definitely encourage you to visit this very cute, quaint and welcoming bar! Try the food too! It's really really good.More

I reviewed with 3 stars only because of the food, it was pretty good. Service would be ok but when we paid, the waiter wouldn’t return us the change all though we asked for it. We ended up leaving because we were on vacation bur...since they wish to have Western prices, they should also offer Western quality service.More

They have good coffee, cocktails and fresh juices/lemonade. Food is good too and it's a nice location overlooking a small park/square

Friendly staff, epic vibe and extremely tasty food. Asked for a side salad which wasn’t on the menu, and they were accommodating. Really great bar with cool interior

We came across this excellent find while we were out exploring and were not disappointed. Food was amazing and worth the wait in the small queue outside (always a good sign!)

This place was recommended by our Airbnb. Very close to our accommodation and a great spot for drinks and food. The food was very tasty, staff were friendly and good cocktails. We dropped in a couple of times as passing by.

This place has a lot of charisma - we stumbled upon it by accident and decided to drop in for a cold drink. When we saw people eating, we decided to also sample their food, and we were not disappointed... all was good, the service...extremely friendly and helpful ... would I visit this place again? Anytime!More

Dropped in to this small inviting bar on 2 occasions. Foods fine, the drinks are better! Cosy bar that's been around for a while and definitely worth a cocktail or two. Tacos fine/ tasty - not much of an evening menu.

Walking around Plaza del Cristo and stopped into restaurant for a dinner but was told full but we could wait at bar for next table. tried to order Cuban beer but they didn't have any so ordered a wine. A couple left the restaurant and...thought we would be shown to the table but another couple walked in and sat at the dirty table. A bit disappointed but were seated at the next available table. I guess that is the norm in Cuba. We ordered veggie tacos which may have been the best ever and tried to order the pesto shrimp pasta but no parmigiana that day. Had a different pasta dish using cheese they had which was quite good. This is also the norm in Cuba running out of foodstuffs. Can highly recommend this little place for a meal; both tacos and pasta.More

These were the best pulled pork tacos we have ever eaten. The mojito was excellent too and thankfully arrived quickly. The tacos took an hour.... Yes we would go again, knowing full well the service might be epically slow....

If you are sick of meat with rice and beans than you must stop here. I had Mexican eggs and they let me order sweet potato fries at 8 am YES!!! The menu looks great and I wish I went there for more meals. Coffee...with baileys was good too. Nice art inside.More
