Slightly out the way but great stop on any walk down the mercades. Amazingly priced for what you get. Mixed tapas starter was lovely. Nice and clean, water cheaper than the local shops.

Located a block across from the Malecon, stumbled upon this little gem. Cuban food done extremely well and reasonably priced to boot. The lady who served us was totally amazing and the recommended dishes didn't disappoint. Restaurant was small, cosy with plenty of atmosphere. I wish it was my local!

The food was great! They elevated Cuban food to a gourmet level. I've had rice and beans all my life but this was special. It had a little something something that I'm still trying to figure out. The shrimp were juicy, the mojito was smooth. The flan had coconut undertones and was unique and presentation was mouth watering. Also the... More

This is a cosy restaurant a block away from the Malecon on the street called "Galiano." Its a great find with great food, drinks and the best Mojitos we had in Cuba. Its not pretentious or flashy but it is a great little place for a 2-4 people having a good meal with drinks in Havana.

Seriously - our favorite dinner in Havana. The most unassuming place we ate turns out to be our favorite. Really good service. Nice Mojitos. They served us drinks while we waited for a table - sipped on the sidewalk outside. Tasty rice and beans and much more. On block off the Malecon. But away from the prime tourist area so... More

Great little find. Went with two friends. Cocktals were lethal and superb! The food was unique as it was modern with a twist. You would almost think you were in a.... you were, in a boutique cafe. Also great value for the price.

This restaurant is 1 block from the Malecon, but a nice find for us one afternoon. We enjoyed the tapa special and shared an entree. Seating is a little tight, but service is good and we enjoyed our meal here.

Finds like this are worth the walk into Havana Central and to Galiano Avenue. In the dilapidated surroundings sits this gem. I had ran into a couple guys who brought me here and I was glad they did. I had either the Cordero Casto or Cerdo de la Castas but it was really good, just wish there was a little... More
