Ate dinner at this lovely restaurant in La Habana's Vedado district (just a few blocks from Hotel Nacional) TWICE (we liked it so much the first time) with my group of 15 University of British Columbia students in May. They have a formal dining room and a less formal grill alongside. We chose the grill both times. Varied menu. Good... More

As it was our first night in Havana, we slowly sipped a couple... More

Beautiful Caribbean home with nice landscaping in an open environment. They have the best Chicken and Rice in Havana, there is a 45 minute wait as the food is cooked to order. They also have a nice "flan" dish that is very well done and have live music.... very nice location near much of typical Cuban culture. We came back... More

We went for supper and we were not impressed with the quality of the food, the steak was hard like a rock and the sandwich was full of grease , beside that the service was extremely slow, never again.

I have to separate the fact that I didn't feel well for this final group dinner and party afterward. Apparently their signature offering is paella. The bowls of paella were huge. I got chicken instead, which was very good. There were 3 of us at a table. Every course the waiters missed one of us with soup, salad, whatever. The... More

A friend of mine had been to La Casona de 17 before and knew what to order. I don't remember the name of the dish in Spanish, but it translated to roughly "yellow rice with chicken". It takes 45 minutes to prepare, so we made the order and went for a walk in the area. When we got back, we... More
