Dona Carmela has been serving good food for years, it's very well established and reservations are advisable as there's nothing else nearby if you go on spec and they're full. The food is very high quality and specialises in fresh seafood, particularly lobster - and it's good and well cooked and presented. Eat outdoors and you'll find it very atmospheric at night and a bit of a sun trap for a long, lingering lunch. Be very specific about what you want and make sure they understand that you want cocktails first, then starters, then main courses or it might all arrive together. They have wine but no wine list and as they can really overcharge ask how much before you order. Service can be a bit slow (thats the Cuban way) and prices are nearer what Europeans pay at home but it's great for an occasion like your last night in Havana. Very romantic for couples and great fun for groups. If you are travelling from central Havana make sure the taxi driver knows exactly where you are going and when you're finished order a taxi back before you ask for the bill/check as it'll take 15/20minutes for one to arrive. You will remember your trip here for all the RIGHT reasons.
