What a fantastic night. Chef Alina is not only a wonderful cook, but a wonderful host as well. We were warmly greeted and taken to one of the upstairs patio tables. When originally reserving, I had noted that one of our travelers was vegan and Chef Alina made sure there were several options on the evening's menu to accommodate! The food was outstanding and the tomato bisque appetizer I selected was the best I've ever tasted. From appetizers, to entrees, to the desserts, this was a hit from beginning to end.

The restaurant's menu changes daily and is presented by blackboard. Alina takes great care to personalize the experience. One in our party was celebrating her birthday and without notice the lights were turned out as deserts were presented, one with a sparkler of celebration and as the waitstaff joined in singing with us. It was a wonderful, personal touch. This place will most definitely be on our "return to" list for next winter's return to Havana

I took a group of 17 and not only did we feast like royalty, but we were treated as such. The chef is very passionate and attentive; explained every dish. She made sure that we were comfortable and felt at home. Nothing better than eating from the hands of a perfectionist. I HIGHLY recommend this foodie experience. Until next time ...

Hecho en Casa is a gem. It was our favorite meal of our trip. Chef Alina was so gracious and hospitable, explaining the different dishes to us. We asked her to cook whatever she would recommend for us and every single dish was perfect and delicious. We were traveling with young kids -- everything was so palatable for them and she made them a special mango drink which they still talk about! The mojito was the best we had in Havana. The service and ambience was wonderful as well.

The experience I have had each time at "Hecho en Casa" can't be found in many other places. This is definitely the best spot. Great food, great environment, and great attention and those are just some of the qualities which make it a go-to spot when visiting Havana.
