“Mangle Rojo--One of the Top Five Restaurants in Cuba”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

With a loyal following racing to Jesus y Idania’s “Mangle Rojo” it’s no surprise this eatery is a hot spot near Old Havana on any given night. Located in Guanabacoa, just a 10-minute (five kilometer), 5 CUC cab ride, is totally worth the short jaunt.



Upon your arrival, you will waltz into one of the most relaxing places around the city. Part-place to stay, part-casual restaurant, this husband and wife team have created an intimate yet inviting haven for foodies from around the globe.



The outdoor courtyard caters to those of us who want to enjoy the cool tradewind breezes as we sip one of the best mojitos on the island and enjoy the local music while taking in the ambience of a space decorated by antiques, native plants and stars up above.



Need air conditioning?

Don’t fret!

You can sit inside at one of the more formal dining areas and enjoy the view of local art as you sip cold beer or generous pours of wine or signature house-made cocktails while dining on traditional cuisine.



In the mood to purchase a piece of Havana art before your go?



Don’t be shy... just ask!



Most of the decorative pieces and some of the antiques are for sell if the price is right.



This chic Cuban trattoria offers arguably the best thin-crusted pizzas in the municipality from an authentic Italian wood-fired brick oven. Add in a handsome wait staff who knows their stuff on friendly not overbearing terms, great fresh salads, generous portions whether it’s the alcohol or food, and toss in upscale selections of chicken, lobster, pork or steak, ultimately a recipe for continued success at a price most restaurants can’t beat.


When you visit Cuba, you hope to have a bona fide experience on any level, right, if you are lucky?

Locals dine here frequently and Jesus and Idania treat everyone like family, genuine indeed.



Welcome to the hood!

Reviewed April 28, 2013

We were a table of 15 persons, incluiding 2 kids. They prepared the table for us very quick and the food was ready super fast. the quality of the ingredients is amazing and the service was 5 stars. We will go back for sure in our next trip to Cuba. My greetings to Jesus, the owner, whom made sure all was ok with our experience. This is an amazing place and the variety of food and sides makes it heven more incredible.

“An excellent choice for a chill meal”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

I went for lunch with a group of 11. We were in the yard by the bar. Food was good and the staff was very friendly and attentive. Beers were cold and prompt. The pizza was wood oven baked and tasty. Highly recommended.
