This seems to be a place that a lot of tour buses go so they have system down to feed you. MY tip is that they have a government cigar store attached. Before coffee go by a small stick and sit in the store lounge and enjoy a small cigar while talking to the lady who runs it.

El Aljibe was the best of the state run restaurants. They were friendly, attentive, and the food was tasty.

We came with our tour group (People-to People Cultural Exchange) and were very pleased. Service was excellent. The food was delicious although we could only have their specialty which is chicken made with their special "sauce." The chicken had both breast and thighs, which we did not find everywhere in Cuba. Many places just served thighs. The chicken was very good along with the rice and black beans. Complete with a welcome drink, and delicious dessert, it was one of the better meals here in Cuba.

The layout is pretty typical for a state run restaurant. The all you can eat meal is outstanding. Chicken, rice, french fries and some salad. Keep eating, they keep bringing more and its all pretty good, without breaking the bank!
