This place was discovered by accident. It is located across the street from the Cuban bank where I exchanged some Canadian dollars. After spending the day roaming through Havana the guys were looking for some lunch, shade and beer but not necessarily in that order though.
A very nice patio with awnings. There are a large number of individuals begging along the road if you sit on the patio but the staff moves them along in a very friendly manner. Also, we where approached by coyotes wondering if we wanted to buy cigars, amongst other things. Their approach was friendly but we were left alone once we let them know we were not interested. My view on the begging and coyotes: If either of these bother you, don't leave the resort as Havana is overrun. Actually, don't leave home as Cuba, in general, is rift with both beggars and coyotes.
We arrived around 2 in the afternoon and ordered drinks, After 30 minutes we asked for the menu. Our waiter informed us that food would not be available since the kitchen was overworked when 2 extra busloads of tourists arrived. There is a back room restaurant behind the bar that seats 50 or 60. We informed the waiter that we wanted lunch so we would take our bill and move along. Amazingly, food was now available.
The price fixe lunch was $6 CUC. A choice of 3 entrees, roasted chicken, pork chops, and a roasted whitefish. When asked what type of fish, the response was fish. I do speak Spanish and the waiter spoke English so it wasn't a language barrier issue. They just didn't know. Our table ordered the roasted chicken and pork chops.
The price fixee includes soup, the entree and a dessert. Both dishes were served with rice and beans and the ubiquitous Cuban shreaded cabbage salad. Sides could be changed as well. The food was flavourful and fully cooked. I have had medium rare chicken and pork in Cuba and must say that I have not developed a taste for it. All meals were delicious and should I visit Havana again, I would return here. Local beer is $1.50CUC
