I went with a group of friends and the food was incredible. Not a lively atmosphere - only 6-10 tables in the main room, but really fun in a small group. Prices, as with all of trendy Havana, are similar to New York when it comes to higher end dining, so put some $$ aside!

The restaurant is located up quite a few stairs at one of the prime access points to Old Havana. The atmosphere is great, and the service is really good. The food is O.K., but we could have done with a little more zing. After dinner, there are some really interesting cafes in nearby Old Havana squares.

Traditional style restaurant with a large terrace overlooking the river and castle and lighthouse. Food was adequate. Restaurant was full and very busy and though in a nice location and of historical interest., we wouldn’t rush back ! Seemed to be a popular destination for tour guides to drop off their customers at the end of their tours.

Unfortunately we visited on what was quite a windy evening which made the meal interesting. Service was excellent and although the food was well cooked, it arrived lukewarm which impacted a little on the enjoyment. It turned out to be quite expensive - we had better meals in Havana that were also cheaper.

12th March A lovely rooftop restaurant with great ambience. This place seemed to be popular with the British holiday makers (guilty) and was packed on a Sunday evening. Make sure to book in advance for a decent table. We rocked up unannounced and we were squeezed on to a table with no view, in front of the bar, in the... More

Near one of the entrances of old Havana where taxis wait, one finds the unassuming entrance of La Moneda Cubana. Be sure to include it on your dinner bucket list, as after two visits, if does not disappointment. Very nice variety of dishes ranging from seafood fare, duck breast, pork and pastas, there is something for everyone. A delightful rooftop... More

This is the second restaurant that we visited based on recommendations from a tour guide and the second huge disappointment. Menu choice was very limited and basically a 2 course set menu with the choice of fish or meat as main course. First course was a tasteless soup on all menus. For main I ordered duck but turkey arrived. When... More

highly recommended by our guide who helped us get a reservation on the roof for the evening. Worth every peso, every member of our group was happy with their food choice and the wine was exceptionally good. Don't bother with dessert - we left for mohitos at the National Hotel.

We'd been recommended this restaurant by a local and it has many accolades. The food was good, a set menu with a number of choices, 2 courses for 18c, extremely good value. There was an option to add a third course. It was extremely busy and the service was disappointing because of this. We loved the roof top option, although... More
