Local restaurant several miles outside of Havana. We had shredded lamb, roasted chicken and fish. We started with a soup that had chicken, sweet potato and yucca. Staff was funny and food plentiful.

The restaurant is named after a Cuban dish. That is what I had for lunch and it was fantastic. The staff were amazing as was the food and drink. Coffee is made in the traditional manner.
