“Definitely everything we expected”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

Encouraged by other reviews, we wasted no time in finding El Rum Rum which is probably well known by everyone as the guard at the nearby bank was quick to point out its location. We were greeted by the 4 or 5 waiters/barmen and had a choice of tables - nobody else in fact came to eat that lunchtime. I noticed that there was a plaque on the wall with the Trip Advisor 2014 inscription and pointed this out to much amusement! Our Spanish is limited which was a handicap. We watched as our mojito and daquiri were being prepared at the bar. The mojito was good, but we still maintain the best is at our hotel, Terral - but this is obviously to one's own taste. The food, however, was first class: stewed lamb, tender and very tasty and fresh grilled fish, well presented and generously served. We would have returned every day but wanted to try out different venues - we regret that now !

“Excellent food! Wonderful!”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

I enjoyed the octopus and the mojitos! The service was exceptional and Osiris was incredibly welcoming and friendly. One of my favorite experiences during my stay in Havana. If you are ever in the area, El Rum Rum is an absolutely necessary stop!

“Run Run to “El Rum Rum de la Habana””
Reviewed 18 July 2014

An absolute delight! We stumbled upon “El Rum Rum de la Habana” by accident as we searched for another tourist feature. Upon seeing the establishment sign, and recalling the many positive reviews from Trip advisor, we headed in for lunch. We were quickly greeted by the owner, who also speaks excellent English, and seated at a table of four. We were immediately struck by the beautiful décor, spotlessly clean floors, and overall warm and welcoming nature of “El Rum Rum”. Drinks followed swiftly consisting of delicious Mojitos and Pina Coladas all very reasonably priced. The excellent menu, in Spanish and English, allowed us to quickly select dishes. Oh my, when the food arrived it was amazing {see pics}. Not only visually appealing, but wonderfully aromatic! All mains were well under 10 CUCs and of tremendous value and quality. Portion size was perfect leaving you content, but not stuffed or hungry. Service was excellent, as we were left to our meals, and not bothered by overly enthusiastic servers. The owner checked in, only once, and asked if our meals were okay? Oh my, YES, by far some of the best we had in Havana. Would we recommend “El Rum Rum”? Absolutely! Do yourself, and your taste buds a favour, and sample the cuisine! You won’t be disappointed! Salut!

“Well Worth a Visit - Very Good Value”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

Really pleasant decor and wonderful staff. This is a great restaurant and I would advise any one visiting to visit this place. Their tapas menu (day time) is amazing and cheap with great Ceviche dishes on offer all freshly prepared. A 3 course meal for 4 people cost us on average £10 per person including a decent amount of alcoholic drinks
