No expectations - but we were given first class dining, and generous portions, and all at very good value.
The Red snapper baked in salt was a revelation! Definitely one to recommend. Quite busy, but easy to find a table outside.

I truly enjoyed the lunch I had at Castropol, it was just delicious. We were there with an incredibly large group (and in our experience most places prefered we use a set menu with just a couple of options). I was so thankful they let us order off of the menu! I had the best Octopus Galliciana style that was cooked perfectly followed by a calabaza soup---which was just stunning to look at and delicious (with a lovely dill cream splashed across the bowl and crispy pancetta). The location was lovely overlooking the Malecon and the ocean. The service was a bit slow, but we were a very large group. Overall one of my favorite meals in Havana.

The quality of the food served is delicious, but the highlight is the attention paid, well served drinks, fast and efficient, plus the chef has culinary talent, with good aspects, leaving beyond common Cuban cuisine.

It was our first restaurant we have visited in Cuba and the last one we have eaten in! The best food, service and value for money! We were sited on the wonderful balcony and given the most refreshing beer with fresh lime juice (Cristal beer). It is difficult to get anywhere else in Cuba! I had sea bass in bechamel and my boyfriend ate beef roulades. Very good, fresh and big food:) Main course around 10 cuc. Located on Malacon, not faraway from Prado.

This restaurant has good food, prices, and service. It is frequented by both Cubans and foreigners.
A small balcony upstairs is a perfect spot to watch sunsets over the Malecon.
