Description: La Casa restaurant is the result of a wide family heritage and also a dream came true.Its been more than 18 years since the day we opened to the public in our Californian stylish house, built in the 1950s. Our desire was to become a family restaurant, where guests could enjoy the authentic Cuban food, cooked in our kitchen following the recipes for Cuban food, among those a large number of our family heritage recipes.

“Impeccable service”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

The young woman who served our table was very helpful. The steak we ordered was served too rare instead of medium rare as we had ordered and upon pointing this out (and on asking for it to be cooked a bit more), she replaced it entirely with a new one. They were gracious enough to call for a taxi and because of the steak mishap we presume, also served us shots of rum on the house. The restaurant is difficult to get to and you need a taxi if arriving from Old Havana or Vedado, but the food and the service make up for it.

“Lovely restaurant”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

Stopped here for lunch during a day visiting Havana in July. We were quite late and the restaurant offered only a set 3 course menu our guide recommended that we share 2 orders between our party of 4, which they were happy to do - just as well we did as the servings are very large. The food is excellent quality - the lamb and pork dishes we ordered came with salad, rice, sweet potato and was one of the best meals we ate in Cuba. We ate plenty of flan for desert in Cuba and those that we were served here were by far the best and they came with delicious ice cream. A really enjoyable visit and we would definitely return if we're in Havana again.

“Favourite Restaurant in Havana”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

Over the past 5 years I have been to Havana about 6 times. For each trip we book this place a minimum of 50% of our dinners. The food, atmosphere; hospitality but most importantly the services and friendliness of Ale and his staff is what makes this place so special. We often find ourselves showing up for a 9pm dinner and leaving at 130am after a glorious meal; a cigar and some rum. By far our favourite place in Havana to eat !
