We went here for lunch. The meals were served quickly and was very good. We were shocked on how cheap the food was. Great deal!

We had a dinner there but first of all we had to wait for about 30 mins outside as the place was busy. When we finally had our table and menu, asking to the waitress we surprisily discovered that at least 80% of dishes were not available. So we decided to get some grilled meat but it was cold or...

Awesome serving sizes and very well seasoned food! This is a great spot to go to in Vedado for a casual lunch or dinner. It is truly a local spot! Ate here twice. Each time that I did, it was packed with local folks - enjoying themselves, living life, and enjoying the food! Also, the ice cream was great as... More

On our last days in Havana, we needed a decent restaurant - and not to expensive. We ate her twice. Good food. Big portions, and cheap. Recommended.

I paid a reasonable price for a Cuban meal at La Roca, a local restaurant in Vedado. The food was very good as well as the service.

Our landlord recommended this state owned restaurant with emphasis on the "ofertas" which are menus that include drink and dessert for a vey good price. We have eaten here three times and have experienced both good and bad waiting, good and bad mojitos, fast and slow service and cold and pipping hot food. But food was always served in abundance...

The wait was a bit long. but the food was amazing. Had ropa vieja - very good! I ordered the Paella and wasn't as enthusiastic about it as the ropa vieja. their fried rice is quite good too. it's a nice place to eat to get out of the heat.

Thee are a lot of very good but quite expensive restaurants in Vedado so if you are there for a few days you might be looking for something a little more modest. Its very close to Habana Libre and Hotel Nacional and the Coppelia ice cream park. The food is fine, the service competent and you might get some live... More
