We stayed two blocks away at the Capri hotel, and walked up for ice cream to be met by an armed security guard who asked us whether we were paying CUP or CUC, as we only had CUC we were redirected to another entrance further...More

I really think the ice cream here doesn't worth over 40 minutes of waiting under hot sun. The ice cream is just normal and plain flavored. Does not worth to go there particularly as a foreigner. I don't really understand why this restaurant is so...More

Amidst the hustle and bustle of midtown Vedado at the corner of 23 & L in front of the Habana Libre hotel, you find the big Coppelia park. This is the first icecream parlor I've been to that's in a UFO-shaped structure on park grounds....More

We had heard about this "amazing" ice cream parlour and had even eaten their ice cream (frozen pineapple) in another restaurant which tasted pretty good so we thought we'd give it ago. There is a Coppelita on El Malecon but it was either never opened...More

We visited based on customer trip advisor reviews . The place looks fun with out door seating , mingling with the local Cuban families. BUT as a tourist (unless you have CUP) you get sent inside to a tiny room with a loud TV and...More

Wow! I did not read the other reviews below before I went. I am so glad I didn’t as it would have put me off. Instead I turned up and did what I usually do when abroad, copy the locals. As a Brit I don’t...More
