El patio restaurant @ Old Havana cathedral square! Good service and good food! Benn there with my wife and enjoyed the seafood platter (lobster, grilled fish fillet and shrimps) for just 12 CUC each! Very well cooked, with rise and potatoes and a free frappe lemonade! But be aware! If you enter from the square you will be given a different menu with prices of 18-28 CUC per platter. Enter from the side and voila... combo menus and platters ranging from 6 to 12 CUC max in an air conditioned room!!! If you ask the waiter maybe... just maybe with the right tip you will be seated outside in the patio with the cheap menu. The two settings (expensive and cheap) share the same cuisine, same toilets but different menus (expensive from front and cheap fro the side). But THIS IS CUBA... Get used to it! You are a tourist and of course the'll take advantage of you in tourist areas! Enjoy!!!

The same as ceciChile's review, we ate at El Patio beside the church overlooking the bay of Havana and the fortress on the opposite side. You eat outside on the roof or downstairs in the dining room. Great location! Go at around 8:30pm and you'll be able to watch the cannons fire from the fortress on the opposite side of the bay. The food is fantastic (by Cuban standards) and very reasonably priced. The drinks and wine list is superb and the staff couldn't be friendlier. La Bodeguita is just down the street for drinks afterwards and music into the night. Highly recommended.

I might be wrong about the name, but we went to a restaurant called el Patio, right outside a big old church, the cathedral I believe and half a block from la Bodeguita. It doesn't look like the picture you have.
Anyway. The place was super nice, outside, the food was good, the wine was good and the price of the wine was good too. The sommelier invited some of the party to check their cava. People were very friendly.

Thank ceciChile
