This place was horrendous. The food and service were both awful. Took 45 minutes to get out drinks and another 45 minutes for our check. We didn't even wait for our last item (which was the spring roll STARTER). Avoid at all costs.

We stopped there while visiting Havana. We tried there piña colada and it was very good. They even give you a bottle of rhum so you can add your own alcohol. The place is nice and there was someone playing the piano and singing some good songs.

We had a bus tour special of pork on a big bed of rice with beans. A good feed with cervesa all included. Our lunch stop on an English speaking historical day tour - WestJet Vacations approved!

It's a shame. We ordered the $18 lobster/shrimp/fish special to share which should have come with a starter, salad, dessert, drink etc. But we just got a plate with some lobster/shrimp and rice - and instead of a can of Cristal beer, we got the more expensive and stronger Bucanero. Our two friends did receive just about what they ordered,... More

We went to this restaurant as part of a tour. It's nice open to the main street and has a neat South American vibe to it. For our meals we had a starter salad that was good and of course bread and butter. Then for our main we had pork, rice and beans they were all fantastic then for dessert... More

Didn't actually realise this was also a restaurant. Were taken here as part of a city tour... really nice place, and lots of fun. A bit tourist tacky, but cheap and friendly for it. We went back on our own a few days later and this confirmed all we'd liked the first time. Pina colada, pineapple and then they hand... More

Another pleasant spot for a drink while on the move. It also serves food and has a few tables on the pavement.

We stopped off here for a drink before walking back along the malecon to our hotel and it was a unique place. I'm not sure if I would have eaten here as the place looked a bit tired but the outdoor bar area amidst the palm trees was a rescue from the sunshine. The bar staff tell you they serve... More

Maybe my expectations were too high for this place but I did not have a good time. I should of have known from the moment I realized we were the only ones in there.
