Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great restaurant with a nice little terrace and really good typical Cuban food. The prices are lower than most of the touristic restaurants in Havana Vieja and the quality is surely better! Try the Ropa Vieja, delicious!

Servers were busy, but friendly and easy-going. Food was top notch, and we ended up coming back the next day for more... would have gone again, but we ran out of time on our trip. Would (and will) absolutely recommend this place to anyone heading...to Havana as authentic, delicious Cuban food for a very reasonable price.More

The atmosphere is authentic, the food is very delicious and it's great value for money. There are some nice tables on the balcony. We ate there 3 times out of the 4 days we spent in Havana!

Ate there for dinner 4 times during our trip to Havana. The service is A1, food is yummy and fast! The servers were sweet and they speak English. It’s located near Malécon near University of Havana. They allow walk-ins and reservations. Their prices are pretty...cheap and the portions are HUGE. My mom and I were able to eat comfortably and have leftovers. The slow cooked black beans were my favorite thing on the menu next to their Grilled/Roasted Chicken. The flavors are there and well cooked. We’re definitely going back when we visit Havana in the future!More

The place is cozy and the service was good. The views from the balcony to the popular San Lazaro Street is the best of the restaurant (up to three people on the balcony tables). Food was ok but nothing special. Prices around 5 cuc per...person.More

Great affordable Cuban food! We had a party of three and I think our bill came out to be $15 max! I would highly recommend this restaurant!

I got huge plates for $5 CUC in Havana here. It's basic chicken and rice or ropa vieja, but it's really a great way to experience some typical cuisine in Vedado area of the city. I went a few times during my stay and took...away leftovers to help cut down on expenses and, for me, it was a good decision. Staff and service was also great!More

My wife and I ate here several times as we were staying in a casa particular very close to the restaurant. The place had a cozy feeling to it, the food was great and sitting on the balcony was superfun watching all the classic cars...go by. Highly recommended for the inexpensive but great food. Easy to find and located on a busy street.More

We were in the area after a free walking tour and this place was recommended by our walking tour guide as a really value for money for the good food. Indeed the price was way lower than the other restaurants we visited. Portion was good...and food was good too, price was even better! It's not near the center of Havana but if you're in the area do visit it!More

This was luckily a few steps from our casa. We ate here twice, because it was such a good and cheap place. Both times we were lucky enough to sit on the balcony and watch the old cars drive by.

Could not believe the prices here, 0.75 CUC for a natural juice glass. Same for a starter (not the best starter but well - its 0.75 CUC!). The mains we had were good, all under 4 CUC. 100% recommend for lunch, cheap with good portions...and reasonable food.More
