If you're after a fantastic meal in Habana Vieja, look no further than El Rum Rum. I came here for lunch and selected a few dishes from the tapas menu. The food was absolutely delicious, everything had such great flavour and the service was top-notch. Even for international standards you could not fault the service. I ordered garlic prawns (shrimps), octopus, slow-cooked lamb shoulder and a fish dish- complemented by a great mojito with dark rum. Yum!!

Next to the Cathedral, right in the same street as "La Bodeguita del Medio", I think El Rum Rum is a much better place to have lunch. Service was excellent, very attentive with us all the time. We ordered the Day Menu, which consisted in a welcome cocktail (Mojito), a soup, a main dish (pork with fried banana) and a dessert. I'm not very keen in tropical desserts but this was quite tasty, it was made with guava and cheese. And all of this food for only 15 CUC per person, which is a really good quality-price relation.

I would totally recommend this place to have lunch if you are visiting Havana Vieja.

We headed to El Rum Rum on our trip to Havana recently and we loved it. I'd highly recommend you stop by, even if it's just for a small bite to eat and a daiquiri. Easily the best daiquiri in the whole of Havana (including the tasteless, overpriced offerings in El Floridita). We enjoyed it so much, we went back the next night. The staff are attentive without being intrusive, they're good fun if you want to chat and leave you alone if you don't. The food was just delicious, I had the sea food noodles and himself had the chicken and rice. The next night I know I enjoyed the food but can't remember what I had - too much rum I'm afraid- we didn't have deserts but the starters were also delicious, both nights we had the croquettes. The taxis will rip you off here, they seem to think that if you can afford there they will charge you double - but we're still only talking £5- £10 to go about 5 miles so not too bad. There are plenty of locals here that you feel you're taking part in the Havana experience and whilst I've eaten Michelin food in my time, I'd still rate the seafood noodle dish as one of the nicest I've ever had.

The place has excellent location. For that I expected some real life, good atmosphere, but it was quite deserted both times I was there.
Food seems good, but we did not eat there just tried the local special cocktail that was way too strong.

We found this place and knew it was in the top 10 on tripadvisor and I can see why! We stopped here for lunch and had a fab meal. The place is clean and the service was great. My daughter has the meat paella, I had the skewers and my husband had veal. The meals were delicious and the drinks lovely and cold. I would liked to have come here at night but there are so many other places we wanted to see as well.
