This was excellent home-cooked food and one and the cheapest meals we had in Havana. You will need to make a reservation two days before you plan to go. We sat outside (there are only 4 tables outside) and enjoyed the music played. Highly recommended!

The frozen mojito are delicious. The beans are fantastic. The rope viejo and picadillo were some of the best we had in Havana. Interior is lovely, filled with iron work and stained glass.

Service was friendly and food was good and reasonably priced. Try to make a reservation as it is a small restaurant.

The best food of any place we ate in Havana. Great friendly service and good atmosphere. The food is what you get other places but much better. The prices are the same as at the other good restaurants. It was very hard to get a reservation so plan way ahead. The restaurant is very small.

We made a reservation on our first night in Havana and had to wait until the night before we left to eat here, but it was well worth the wait. Service was very friendly, prompt, and wonderful and all the dishes we had were perfectly seasoned and delicious. We had ropa vieja, grilled chicken and grilled octopus. Each dish came... More

My Cuban born father sent me and my tribe of traveling Gringos to Dona Eutimia, and I can tell you Father really does know best.... Our larger party of 9 was accommodated on the air conditioned second floor; A tiny room that holds only 2 larger tables. Usually a vegetarian, I lifted my meat embargo and had the Lamb Ropa... More

This "Palador " which literally means " palate " is situated in Old Havana, in the Plaza near the main Cathedral . You can sit inside or outside . The food was local flavours , it seemed like everything was served with plantains and beans . The service was good .

It was a nice dinner and at $94cuc for 5 people, very reasonable. I will definitely come back to try some of the other dishes when I'm in the area, I would love to sit on their small patio on a nice day. What impressed me the most was the service, the best I've had in the 14 years coming... More

Dona Eutemia is that rare breed of Havana Paladar: good food at good value. It is located just off Cathedral Square next door to the fabulous experimental graphics and lithography workshop. For less than $15 a person you can have ropa vieja, vaca frita or any number of cuban specialties and drink the coolest mojito in town ("frozen"). The service... More

... Make sure to reserve ahead by at least a few days, and don't accept a table upstairs. The atmosphere is not nearly as nice up there, and it detracts from the experience overall. Enough that I almost wished we had just eaten outside at one of the several restaurants surrounding it that were not booked up in advance...
