Its just around the corner for the promenade in old town and across the street from the malecon. Very pleasant setting, good menu and sangria by the pitcher, fun evening and good value. Only difficulty was paying...we had asked if they took credit cards to which they said yes and then at the end it was cash only and we... More

When we went to have dinner we were lucky enough to get a table in the upstairs terrace to have an excellent view of the Malecon. We ordered the ropa vieja and a pesto shrimp dish and both were amazing!!! Not only was the food delicious, but our server Carlos was excellent. He was very friendly and had a lot... More

We dined on the verandah facing Malecon Habanero, cheap mojitos, tender meats, nice cold cuts, cold beer. I went back for seconds, with a cousin of mine, the day after a winter storm and they served us upstairs, the ocean braking against the sea wall, amazing! meat tender again and well seasoned, a little pricey, but good

Sociedad Asturiana Castropol. It is two restaurants, the high end one upstairs and the slightly lower end downstairs. Both are very good, although we only ate upstairs twice. We ate our butts off for $50 for two persons upstairs. One app, two mains, wine dessert and rum. Our waiter Vladimir is superb.

We had high hopes for this restaurant and reserved a table for the night we arrived in Havana. We were sorely disappointed. We ordered the stuffed plantains as an app which were okay, but then followed them with lobster which was so tough and over cooked, and rice and beans which were cold and didn't taste very good. We felt... More

Ate dinner in both the upstairs and downstairs area. Upstairs is more expensive but excellent food,. Downstairs has lower prices but again excellent food. Everything was fresh and cooked to perfection, Staff was friendly and many of them spoke some English, which was helpful for us. Downstairs also has a trio playing wonderful dinner music at a volume where you... More

I ate hear on five occasions in December 2016 and January 2017 (mostly in the downstairs restaurant, but once in the upstairs, slightly smarter place). The menu was wide, and the food and drink consistently very good. Service also pretty good. Excellent value for money.

You would think that since it is Cuba the service is their strong suit, but it's not. The waiter was argumentative, did not check no out table of 6 often enough, and the food took over 30 minutes to be brought to our table despite a restaurant clearly working at less than 50% capacity. Prices are extremely high for Cuba... More

Fine dining overlooking the Malecon, with stunning sea views certainly adds to the experience. Cuba isn't known for good food, but our meal at the Castropol was excellent. UK prices (so quite expensive for Havana), World class food, World class portions and World class service, thank you Fransisco.

Yes, it's on the malecon and it has balcony seating (full when we were there, so we had to sit inside). The staff is very efficient, but the food is mediocre, at best. Everything is a la carte, so side dishes cost extra. The dining room inside is a bit dated; looks like something from the soviet era. There is... More
