Even though my fish wasn't the best this fun restaurant, that is trying to become a chain which was formally forbidden in Cuba, is great to go to for the great service and nice atmosphere.

We enjoyed this so much that we went a second evening, and were the last people to leave when the outside bar closed. The chocolate milkshakes are awesome and we had Cuban sandwiches, each of which would have fed two people! There are two areas - an outside bar area for drinks and snacks and an indoor area which has... More

Worth a visit but be careful when looking for it. The trip advisor map is incorrect and it's actually about 10 blocks further down 23rd Ave. Since we were lost we flagged a cab and he knew exactly where to take us. As other have said there are two restaurants, La Pachanga and VIP. VIP is indoors and has AC,... More

I have been eating here for years. They keep on adding to the premises and to the menu. The quality of the food and service has been consistently good ( consistency in Cuba is rare). Prices are reasonable. Easy to get to...only half a block off the shared taxi routes on Calle 23.

Amazing food at this paladar independent restaurant. The VIP room has the air con on full, which was a bit too cold until others arrived. Outstanding lobster with huge starters and great Mojitos. A bit further out but worth the visit!

One of the best meals we had... it was only 2 blocks from our house and walked past it each day, looked very relaxed and pretty. Wish we ate here sooner, only went on our last night. Delicious filet mignon for 12 CUC! Comfy chairs, most professional waiter we had on the trip and finally a place where no one... More

This is actually two restaurants. If you want to sit outside, you will have simple fare with great hamburgers and other tasty options - really great prices. The inside restaurant is more refined with a totally different menu - many wonderful Cuban entrees. We ate twice at both places and found the food to be excellent, and prices VERY good!... More

I often stop by La Pachanga when I am in Havana, they have very good and reasonable food. There staff are friendly and informative. It doesn't hurt that they are open until 4 am and the beer is cold when you are thirsty.
