Without a doubt a must see when in the area. Was within walking distance of our hotel and the food was spectacular. You can have an entree and appetizer for under $15 cuc combined. Basically you are eating almostbin someone's home but the hospitality was great. I had the rips vieja which came with congris, plantain chips and a small... More

Within walking distance of the Plaza de La Revolucion, and worth the walk too. My wife is Cuban American and the food, portions, prices were right on point. A little tight, but then again, you are in someone's home.

Like the title says... It was the best restaurant of our 9 day cuba trip! This place was amazing! Huge portions and excellent friendly service and local atmosphere. Lots of locals eating with us, this is the best spot! Ropa vieja was great! So was the uruguayan steak and tostones.

The inside was quite cramped but had a cosy feel to it. The staff were good and the food arrived promptly. Drinks and starters were all cheap but the main courses were several CUCs more than other, better restaurants. That said, the food was good and the portions were ample.

This is a popular spot with the locals and Anthony Bourdain. This was the best ropa vieja I had in Havana. Solid, traditional Cuban food. Definitely worth a visit.

I went here because this was one of the restaurants that Anthony Bourdain visited during his 2011 Cuba trip. It wasn't exactly my favorite meal (pork tenderloin, rice) in Havana, but was good and had a nice atmosphere.

Without question this was our favorite restaurant on our trip. Absolutely excellent Cuban food. Whomever said that Cuban food is dull had been limiting themselves to the crappy Cuban hotel buffets. This restaurant is a must visit for anyone travelling to Havana. There is a much broader range in food items than what I was expecting for such a small... More

Not so easy to find, was recommended to me by a friend, but I ate there 3 times during my week in Havana, & was not disappointed each time. It is not so large, about 10 or 12 tables, & many Cubans were eating there so already a recommendation. The menu is typical Cuban, and all available - which is... More

Ate here with another couple - we had a reservation and got right in. Service was a little slow, but nothing horrendous. They were out of a number of items, which is not unusual in Cuba, but what they did have was very good. Probably the best thing was a black bean soup - I know it does not sound... More
