Our very first experience of Cuban customer service...this restaurant promised much but delivered very little. There was live music on at the time plus dancers demonstrating Cuban Salsa, however nothing else recommends this place. The waiter took 15 minutes to lay a table for 5 while we waited on the threshold in the rain, he even made a point of... More

The place is atmospheric with musicians trying to enliven the tired tourist. It is a government run restaurant and the prices are regulated so the dishes are very cheap 3 to 5cucs(about 3-5$) for a dish of pork with some malanga mash or yucca, for example. It is not delicious, but not bad either. There is a huge turnover, being... More

I ordered the paella. Had 3 tiny pieces of fish and 1 fragment of crab. Nothing else at all added to the dishwater slop of gluggy rice and onion. When I asked the waiter if I had the right dish he appeared nonchalant. Don't go.

The music are dancers are great However watch it from outside and go eat somewhere else I had the worst meal I had the pulled beef - salty and inedible Root vegetables were a teaspoon of pulverised baby food When challenged waiter - said that was normal and not interested Please save your taste buds and go elsewhere

There is long line of people queuing during dinner time probably because of the location. The food was so so and the lobster was over cooked. Service was average. There are better restaurants around at reasonable price.

We chose the restaurant because the tablecloths said "night out" and there was always a line-up. We got right in the night we went, got a dance-floor side table to enjoy the music and salsa dance performance. Service was terrific! Attentive enough and friendly. The mojitos seemed a bit weaker than at other places but the prices are right. The... More

Went there several times and atmosphere is good, live band. Food is well flavoured and very cheap and drinks are also cheap. Price quality wise on the much better side

We decided to have lunch at Europa because it was quite cheap and there was live music. But...everything we tasted was so bad, sadly. Not even the rice or the daikiri I ordered were good, which is complicated in Cuba. I don't recommend it at all!

I visited Cafe Europa just the once during my two week stay in Havana Vieja. This restaurant was always very popular with regular queues, primarily I think because it always looked full and people thought it must be good. The irony is that though the food was indeed very good, the place always seemed full because of appallingly bad service.

The prices seem reasonable but it depends on if the waiter actually charges you those prices and if the food is even available. I ordered a $3 grilled pork meal since apparently the $3.50 fried pork meal wasn't available. When the bill arrived he had charged me a different price for the grilled pork, $3.75. I thought this was strange... More
