We stopped here for a drink on a really hot afternoon. There is an ice cream next door and they even lent us a spoon to eat the ice cream with even though we didn't buy it there (we would have done if they had any to sell us). Friendly helpful staff and quick service by Cuban standards.

This place is awful. We had an overpriced and badly cooked paella and the service is extremely unfriendly. We regret we went there...

In 1 month in Cuba I've had one single bad meal and that was at Covadonga, where I got a too expensive overcooked paella. To be avoided
