You can't miss El Patio in a central Havana tour: great old building, good food and service, not cheap, but I guess you can't expect to be considering the location alone. I recommend sitting on the front terrace to have a complete view of the Plaza and enjoy the live bands that pop out of nowhere to animate the atmosphere.

We ate on the second floor at the balcony. It was extremely romantic but not peple who are afraid of hights. The food was good, (nothing special, but good). The food takes the ilnfluence from Mediterranean and Creolian kitchen. Make sure you eta here at night :) it is very romantic. During the day the drinks are good but maybe a little bit overpriced.

We took the bus from Miramar to Havana to have a look at havana before sttaying here for 4 nights and was runned down on the plaza catedral by cuban people trying to sell candy, cigars, pictures of national costumes and good places to eat. Despite the warning to not go at El Patio because it was a prizy place we desided to give it out a try. And we where so pleased to discover a lovely decorated builing with a beautiful palmgarden in the center.
We got the table on the balcony overlooking the circus of sellers and tourists. An amazing view, making it the perfect place for special occations and romantic atmosphere!
We ordered the lobster witch was lovely, not to least say the huge size of the portions. Two lobsters each was more than enough.
We would recommand this place ren though we felt it was a bit expensive, but ofcourse we also know that a view like this has it's price aswell.

Had dinner with a group of about 20. An interesting fish and pickled veg salad as a starter; moist ropa vieja, white rice, potato and veg; a fried (and somewhat soggy) pasty dessert with raspberry sauce. Not our best meal, but on the whole well cooked and satisfying.

We ate here before heading to the soccer game. The chicken I ordered was a little strange (I mean it is Cuba) and they had a pickled salad as a starter that was pretty good. They have bottled water (a must for travellers) and ice cold beer. The potatoes were underdone and the cheque times a little slow would be my only complaint.
