Chances are you are reading this review after eating at El Tablao because you were probably brought here as part of a group tour without knowing what the restaurant was. Let’s start with the positives... nicely appointed restaurant with clean restrooms and air conditioning. Food...More

Horrible tourist trap. Girls are so rude and pushy . Never been so uncomfortable in a location before. Brought food I didn’t order twice and left it. I didn’t touch it because I didn’t want to get charged or want to eat it. Hopefully they...More

Went to Tablao with my tour guide for lunch. Very quaint setting in New Havana. Thought the lunch menu was a little pricey. Most entrees were$16-18 CUC. I tried the minced meat special which came with rice and salad. It was different but quite tasty....More

Had lunch. Good service and English was not an issue. Had live music which was very nice. No cards accepted. Just outside the old town, and taxis were near by. Extensive meat and seafood selection cooked local style. Recommended.

Our tour guide brought us here (As begin most of the posts on here). We really enjoyed the music! And my drink was awesome! The food was mediocre and overpriced. I have to agree with the other posters here, it is definitely a tourist trap.

Our tour guide took us to this restaurant & it was delicious. We all tried a different a la carte item & shared. $18 cuc gets you tons of food, plus 2 drinks.
