We were told about camera obscura from some fellow tourists. It is on the roof top and is one of 7 or 8 in the whole world. I don't know exactly what the mechanics is but from the roof top one can see with the help of mirrors and lenses you can see a large panoramic view of Habana Vieja.... More

This is a good place to people watch, stroll around, and enjoy the buildings. As my other reviews relates, do NOT eat or drink at Factoria Plaza Vieja - total tourist rip off.

We stayed in a Casa close to this square and frequented it quite a bit but as we explored we found quite a few others and nice smaller squares not so full of tourists. Nice place to be introduced to Havana Vieja, but go further!

...stayed in a delightful casa particulare a few steps from this plaza and had a quick, easy walk to it. ...nicely restored and quite beautiful, but a little more attentiveness should be provided in regards to the litter that had accumulated in spots. There are wonderful restaurants and small shops: the ambience is supreme.

We had darker beer. It is not so strong, kinda sweet taste. I liked it. Two glasses won't even get you dizzy. We had chicken (don't remember the name) and it wasn't tasty. It was kinda cold and chewy. Just remember the waiter/waitress can be very slow. And even other waiters see you, they're not gonna come to your table.... More

Almost always packed , in the popular La Plaza Vieja .Simple but generally good meat dishes. Great Mojito and beers. Simple plastic chairs and tables , mostly outdoor. Service is slow , and sometimes poor.

The Bar / Restaurant is located at the scenic plaza vieja - lively, packed with locals and tourists. They serving a range of nice nibbles and beer in towers. Unfortunately in the night we visit the bar they have runout of Mojito - sad but a bit disappointing. We needed to wait quite a while for our bill.
