Reading the below poor reviews makes me sad as we LOVED this place in Havana. Ate their twice, having ropa vieja both times. We sat outside in the gorgeous courtyard under the arches to avoid the hot sun. The ropa vieja we had there was the best we had in Cuba, and we ate it many times. The perfect combination... More

During our visit to Habana Vieja we decided to stop at this little restaurant. The menu looked good however when we ordered we were told that most of our choices were out and only the pricier dishes were still available. The service was very slow (the waiter was arguing most of the time with the lady behind the counter). The... More

We ate at this restaurant once following the recommendation of our travel book. They offer several meals for 7 CUC which seemed to be a good deal. However we were really disappointed - the salad was only shredded coal, the rice was cold and the "Ropa vieja" was more an appetizer than a main dish and not very tasty. Coffee... More

We stopped here for a little refreshments. We liked the setting...we were sitting on the courtyard, on the square side of the restaurant. Our waiter was very quick and friendly....we had only coke, espresso, cappuccino and my husbands had a flan which was tasty. There are always some music from the square, they were not loud, enjoyable just to listen... More

The nice little space in the centre of town looks pretty, and the prominent place of sandwiches on the menu made is think this would be good for a light lunch. Unfortunately there were plenty of cats, newspaper sellers, unsolicited guitar players etc. Moreover, if we hadn't gotten the menu ourselves it would have been at least half an hour... More

Stop here for the best crema in a cappuccino in Habana and my wife knows espresso. Food looks good for lunch. Don't miss the courtyard tables and the musica from the elderly couple usually there. This was our special,place - surprising it's not crowded but maybe that's a good thing.

This statal restaurant is excellently located in a typical little square in Old Habana, among beautiful tree...a couple of singers has performed for us for at least two hours. The food was cuban standard, not bad and with a very good quality/cost ratio. The waiters were extremely kind and deliciously confusionary, we really enjoyed our meal. i really loved one... More
