Stayed at a casa nearby and were recommended as a place to eat nearby. Great recommendation. Had the set lunch menu that had a great choice about 12 CUC pp. The food was that good we reserved a table for the following evening that was as good if not even better. The staff were very helpful and attentive.

We took a vintage taxi from our hotel to this location for dinner. We were greeted warmly, seated promptly, and offered a "welcome drink" with a rum float. I had a chicken curry dish which was tasty but not "spicy hot" as some curry can be. Accompaniment was salad and traditional rice and beans. Flan for dessert. Sounds simple but... More

We had reserved a table, and was seated outside in the front garden. The restaurant is located in a quiet neighbourhood in Vedado, and you get the feeling that this is kind of classy. It is the closest you get to fine dining in Cuba, as far as I'm concerned. Perhaps except from La Guarida, however the style is quite... More

We had a great dinner here before going to the Tropicana. Delicious food, and our waiter even brought out octopus carpaccio as a gift! Lovely people, lovely restaurant, lovely dinner! Make reservations in advance!

Large portions. Friendly service in a renovated mansion. Cool colours and antique furniture accompany the well seasoned food. We have been visiting for over 5 years.

I was lucky to have a seat without a reservation. They let me have the big marble table in the garden, surrounded with palm trees. The restaurant opens at lunch time and dinner time, waiters speak English, and you definitely need reservation. Sipping my daiquiri, Hemingway's fave drink, I really enjoyed my time. Had the best and the most fresh... More

On our last night in Havana, we dined at Starbien. We were a group of 20 servd in a private room.. The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. All this in a beautifully restored mansion. I would highly recommend Starbien.

I arrived to Havana after a long road trip with my starving children and looked for this pace after a recommendation of close friends. We arrived without reservation ( which I highly recommend since this place is very popular). The staff not just accommodated us but they were extremely welcoming and spoiled us with attentions and suggestions. The meal was... More
