This is a great spot for a quick bite and a very low cost. Hard to get food as good as this in Havana at this price. Great on the go.

We went to this place after seeing it in Lonely Planet. However it was a disappointment. The food is not good, service very low considering the amount of customers. We got sick from the food.

A local tour guide took us to this place to show us where the locals eat and it did not disappoint. Make sure you have your expectations in check - this is cheap, Cuban fast food. The staff is friendly, the place is very clean,...More

Just like all the reviews say; good tastin' cheap sandwiches. A few to chose from for around 2 - 3 CUC. A place for take-out anytime just off of Obispo. They have a very petite air-conditioned sitting area which I was told you need to...More

We stopped by to grab some sandwiches and they didn’t disappoint us. They were very good and cheap. I’d definitely go back again.

Love this place. Whenever I'm in Havana and need a bite to eat and dont want to spend too much money I go here. The service is getting better but there is still room for improvement. It is understandable that it's Cuba and service tends...More

I wasn't expecting much from this ridiculously inexpensive little fast food shop, but what a nice surprise. Great food and a lot of indie charm (including anti-McDonalds posters on the walls). The layout's a little confusing. It looks like takeout only, but there's a door...More

We went here on our first day after having read about it in Lonely Planet and bought the 'Cuban' to take away. It was very cheap (1,5CUC?), portions were huge and taste was great. After this experience we returned on several occasions during our stay,...More

During my recent stay in Havana I visited La Bien Paga three times in one week! The Cuban sandwiches are delicious, very fresh (because it is a popular local spot), and very inexpensive (about 1.5 CUC for a large sandwich). The sandwiches were very filling!...More
