Best food we ate in Cuba hands down. The food was so good we ate here 3 times during our 7 day stay. The food was well seasoned unlike every other place we ate at. We ate breaded chicken breast, ropa vieja, masas, tostones, and...More

We came to this place with great expectations based on reviews. It was below average. Took them a long time to sit us even though it was in the middle of the day. Our food took almost an hour to come to the table. Some...More

Los Amigos was recommended to us. We were not impressed. We both tried to order a couple of different drinks and a few different entrees before we hit on one they actually had--even though they were on the menu and no one told us they...More

After visiting the city's tallest building (FOCSA) and walking portions of the Malecon, we stopped here for a quick bite and ordered the picadillo beef plate with congri and some chicharrones. The place is cozy with a nice walkway lined with tables for outdoor dining....More

Lovely food but what is up with Cuba? Changing the prices between what is listed on the menu and what appears on the bill; and short changing doesn't motivate us to tip; come back; or recommend. Disappointed but this has been our experience with many...More

We ordered the black bean soup with white rice and some papas fritas to share as we're vegetarian and wanted to try a local paladar. The food was lovely and served promptly. The paladar setting was cosy and the service though not overly warm was...More

If Anthony Bourdain has visited this place and raved about it, you have to go. The food is delicious, and they have a good variety of options. The price is so reasonable. Come here, sit outside, and enjoy a few fried plantains, fries, and Cuban...More

We went here following Anthony B in No Reservations. The food was basic, the service was basic. If you're around it and simply want to eat, give it a try. Do not go out of your way to go here though.

A main course and some wine cost me 12 Pesos Convertibles, and that´s about US$12. Make sure you book in advance as it gets packed easily. The best way, when strolling around Old Havana just pass by and choose the table you... More
