Everything about lunch at El Tranvia was superlative! The service was fast and friendly, the mojitos pitch-perfect, the grilled lobster sublime!. We especially enjoyed the trio -- guitar, tiple and vocalist.

Enjoyable lunch - too hot to sit upstairs but enjoyed the historical atmosphere in the main restaurant. Good shrimp dishes and excellent service - a very relaxing place for lunch. Good value compared to Havana. Good view from upstairs if you can handle the heat.

We ate upstairs on their terrace. We ordered freshly made fruit juices before the food and they were lovely. The food was delicious, but what we enjoyed the most were the two musicians who both sand and played guitar to us at our table.
