We ate sandwiches and ice cream, and had drinks on several occasions during our visit to Havana. Good valve. Nice ice cream. We sat outside at the tables on Oficios.

Apparently nothing on the menu is available except the expensive combos the waitress is pushing. Signage at the front also advertised tamales but they too were unavailable. The worst part of this place is the extremely long waits for food and the promises that it'll just be 3 more minutes, over and over. The bathroom was also atrocious and there... More

Near the restaurant terrace there are people sell different old presents. The food was recommended by the waitress and was a cocktail of seafood. Was perfect, very taste and very good - with lobster, shrimps, fish and a very pleasant sauce. Some of the people traveling around us just stop and ask what we eat because look very interesting. The... More

Portions are okay, we shared a meal of the neat trio. Lacked seasoning. Sat outside which was nice other than the locals coming up asking for money or trying to sell hats/chips. Server was very nice. Live music was great, bought their cd

Great place to sit, have a few drinks and watch the world go by on the Plaza de Armas. Also very close to Castillo de la Real Fuerza.

A real special place to visit, ask to go into the garden at the rear to see a real treat. Surrounding the beautiful garden is 2 peacocks and a chicken with 2 cats to keep us company. It was really beautiful. The food was good, we had a shared platter which in hindsight we may of chosen separate dishes but... More

We ate here because we were tired and hungry and needed to sit down. But it was a bit ordinary. The food was okay, but very average. There are much better places to eat close by. It's one of two restaurants on the block and both have travelling musicians drowning out any conversation and getting in the way. Wouldn't go... More

Pretty sure the waiter thought we were Americans so treated us accordingly. Not sure why. Other patrons were from Mexico and elsewhere and definitely had a better time than us.

We didn't eat here but we had coffee and mojitos here. The coffee is really delicious here - so if you're in Habana Vieja and need a good latte/flat white/long black i.e. Americano or an espresso - stop here. It's a great place to people watch also as it's on Obispo - the main drag in Habana Vieja.
