This unique mansion belonged to the de Céspedes family from Spanish colonial times, the interior rooms are magnificent. We had a lovely lunch on the back patio, great sandwiches, salad and mojitos. The views of the bay are relaxing and after eating we walked towards the Japanese style setting done in stone, corals and seashells with stunning results. At night... More

The best part of our trip to Cuba! People so fully alive dancing. And the music was great. Just loved it and the food was quite ok, too. I didn´t like to give my bag away, but got to keep a small purse in my belt. I would have liked to go there another evening, but I did not have... More

state restaurant on Molecon. Beautiful and very elegant with a 5 star service and quality of food at above average for Cuba - Excellent wine list in a adequate price. Full dinner with wine and pastries and coffee Eur 40 per person. But it's worth it if you want to come back for a time to our European standards

Beautiful setting, waterfront in an old fort looking building. But very slow service, out of most items on menu including ice, wine, pizza, yellow rice. Drinks just average. Shrimp cocktail is a martini glass full of mayonnaise with a few shrimp. The fried chicken was a big hit with the others at my table but i found it dry. I'd... More

From all the parties, 1830 on the Malecon offers the best experience. Locals and tourists gather together to enjoy the hottest salsa rhythms and experience the latest shows. Starts at 9.30, finishes at 1am. My absolute favourite!

Very lively and welcoming club in a fantastic location. The guys got us up and dancing and included us thoroughly. The only downside was there was no water and the toilets were out of use.

Here you can walk and having good time with you partner or friends, you can talk with the locals, and see how they fish, its very romantic place and cool.
