“Best Restaurant in Cuba”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2012

I have been coming to Cuba for 20 years and have eaten at many restaurants and paladars.
El Mangle Rojo is by far the best one yet. Their food is fantastic and their service is great.
I highly recommend the fish palmador, it is unbelievable. They also have the best pizza in the entire country. It is cooked in a brick oven. It is only a 10 minute taxi ride from downtown Havana.

“Great food, friendly service, good prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2012

We had several good meals at Mangle Rojo. They have good salads, pizzas and sandwiches for lunch or dinner. They also have a nice selection of upscale choices--seafood, pork, chicken and steak. Their black beans and rice were the best we had in Cuba. The service is friendly and helpful. You can sit outside on the patio or indoors in the air conditioned dining room. We loved the pizza oven crackers and dip before dinner. My lobster dinner was delicious. Don't miss this great spot. It was a highlight of our time in Havana.

“Italian Style Pizza - very delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2012

The Pizza is delicious and real italian style! As i remember prices for a pizza are CUC 5,- to 8,-. The service is also excellent - the waiters speak english (one of them german as well), the cook speaks english as well and has a good knowledge! The furnishing is luxury and comfortable! Best-value! Although not in the city-center of Havana, a visit to Guanabacoa (one of the 15 municipalities of the city) is worth it! I highly recommend it!
