Simple, delicious chicken. Recommended by a friend, so we made the effort to make it here for a meal. It's a simple meal but the food was tasty, service friendly in a pleasant open air palapa style (big) space.

Rice with beans and roasted chicken are really first class. During my long stay in Havana I have been in this restaurant many times and the quality of the food has always been superb. It is a must for visitors of Havana.
