“Open air fine dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2012

El Idilio is located on avenida los presidentes and la calle 15 and a short walk from casa Ernesto where we stayed during our trip to Cuba. El Idilio was a great find serving classic Cuba dishes like ropa vieja which is shredded beef and peppers in a red wine reduction. El arroz morro which is black beans and brown rice and fresh baked bread was served with every meal. To end the dinner they serve a delicious flan that is some of the best I have eaten in my travels. The service was on point especially since restaurants are cooperatives. Dinner for two including tip was 23CUC.
