This place is inexpensive and affordable. Best of all is that the ice cream choices and air con makes it perfect for a hot summer day stop. Sándwiches (bocaditos) are tasty and very inexpensive. Batido de helado de vainilla (vanilla milk shake) is a must.

Firstly this place has air conditioning that works well, great on hot days to cool down and have lunch. Very nice pizzas at very reasonable prices. Cans of coke, etc were only 1 cuc. The spaghetti napolitana was very nice and filling. The three scoop of ice cream sundae for 1.70 cuc was just great.

This is convenient spot for a quick sandwich along Obispo. It's small so can get crowded at times. Good AC for those hot summer days. Under 5 CUC for Sandwich and Beverage.

Visited the Ambarina in 2 occasions last November and I loved the ice cream, especially the 3 flavours ice cream with guayaba... It was delicious! I also tried the lunch with ropa vieja, congry, and salad and it was tasty. What I like the most at this place was the friendly staff and the location; the Ambarina is a good... More
