Atmosphere as well. On the street you can hear street band (like almost everywhere in Havana). I can recommend ropa viejo. Service was fine. Toilets dispapointing, especially for womens as you can not close it.

We ate twice at this restaurant -- once with a group at peak dinnertime and again with two of us for an early light meal.The food was outstanding both times -- good solid food well prepared. During the first visit there were wonderful musicians in the two story restaurant/bar with playing in the spiral staircase -- this is a tiny... More

This bar has a great atmosphere, friendly staff (rare in Cuba) the waitress was very nice and spoke excellent English. They serve delicious drinks, and wholesome Cuban food. On the day we went there we had wandered around Old Havana and were in desperate need for a drink and something to eat. We enjoyed drinks outside followed by snacks and... More

A two-story restaurant with a very nice and cosy atmosphere, good food and very good service. We got there late but we had all the service we needed. It was our second night in the city so it was very important that the - very good english speaking - waitress help us around the traditional cuban dishes. Try ropa vieja,... More

The first time we went to Nao was with a tour guide and the meal was included in the price of the tour. We sat inside on the upper floor. I think they gave us three things on the menu to choose from for your main course We chose the chicken and it was very good. Two large pieces with... More

On our way to 'El Templete' restaurant behind the Plaza de Armas, we came upon this place and decided to give it a try. Reasonably priced good food, pleasant service and desserts made in-house. The wine list was a chalkboard covering a chunk of a wall showing current choices. It was limited and my first two picks were not available....it... More

I just returned from Cuba and promise myself I'd write a review for this restaurant. I was in Havana 4 nights and didn't find decent food until the last night - my best meal was at this restaurant. I had the lamb and it was delicious. HUGE portions for cheap and the service was attentive. The ambiance was nice inside... More

I found it difficult to find a good restaurant in Havana. Entered this place by chance and was delighted. The food was really tasty (I had pork asado) and well presented, not so expensive and I was happy with the service. There was a band playing outside but it was not touristy even though it's on Calle Obispo. Well worth... More
