In one of the corners of Plaza Vieja you'll find a colorful and lively new bar/restaurant which produces their own beers. In addition, they serve a wide range of snacks, small dishes and fully fledged dinners. I can recommend their hamburger and a pint of beer for just 3,50 CUC. Prices are human for a place like this which of course is a magnet for tourists. But I noticed quite a few of local people drinking as well! Live music outdoors make the whole experience worth while. One of the specialties is 6 pints of beers served in a glass cylinder for 12 CUC. Nice to be able to sit round a table pouring your beers from your very own tap. A lot of grilled food - I tried the skewer with shrimps and lobster; excellent! One warning: stay away from the shrimp cocktail; I have never ever been served such tasteless, rubberlike small lumps of something called shrimps!
Regardless, this is a find - are you in the old historic Havana, get to the old square. Visit the attraction camera obscura before enjoying the beers and food at the 'factory'. Later in the evening, pop in at the Terverna on the opposite corner to listen to Buena Vista Social Club! (Starts 9.45 pm)
