Wonderful chocolate. We didn't eat in we ordered our "gift boxes" from a separate counter from the door to dine in. The service was pleasant and efficient. The chocolate is a nice quality. Here is a secret... if this place is packed. Turn your back...More

The name is a bit misleading, but it's quite nice to sip chocolate and look at the couple of exhibits they have of items used in the production of chocolate. The cold chocolate drink was perfect to cool down (it's also air conditioned) and we...More

There are a few displays of old chocolate making equipment behind glass here, but "museum" is a bit of a stretch. It is, however, a good place to sit in air conditioning and drink chocolate milk for just $1. The quality of the solid chocolate...More

Not sure why it's called a museum. It's a chocolate shop with decent chocolate but touristy so long lines to sit down and have a chocolate drink. I did wait in line to buy a piece of chocolate, wish I could've bought more but it...More

There was a big queue outside so I thought it'd be worth a look, only took 15 mins or so to get inside. It isn't really a museum, there's just a couple of display cabinets inside a cafe. There's only chocolate on the menu. Ordered...More

Very good chocolate in the heart of Old Havana. My absolute favorite is the Havana Club 7 años chocolates made with real Havana Club rum.

Often lined up with people trying to get their little bit of excellent chocolate - interesting information about the chocolate industry and its history in Cuba

This is a tiny shop that is easy to overlook. The chocolate is great and the chocolate cigars make fun gifts. The downside, like most places in Havana, is a large tempting menu with only a few items available.

This is a place for real chocolate fans. You can have a chocolate milk shake or hot chocolate and there are chocolates for sale, so it's good for a short stop if you're in the area.

No, it is not a museum. Just a few posters around the walls and some chocolate being mixed and then put into moulds. All the drinks are chocolate based and I thought good, made a change from alcohol and coffee.
