This was a pleasant surprise suggested by a cabbie. For $25 CUC you can enjoy this facility and they give you $15 CUC for food and beverages. Can’t beat that price. Wish the pool water was colder cause it’s super hot in August.

This is one of the most famous restaurants in Havana. This place has usually been reserved for high protocol dinners with diplomats or very important and rich foreign residents in Cuba. However, even though this site provides a very expensive and allegedly high quality service...More

Description
Very good restaurant. Lonely Planet review El Chelo is situated in the swanky Club Habana. Perched in front of the sparkling Straits of Florida and a well-raked scimitar of private beach, El Chelo serves everything from a cheap, tasty ropa vieja to a pricier (but still tasty!) lobster. The decor is suitably luxurious. Nice Wine Bar, smoking cigar and excellence playa and pool side.
