Can I make a reservation ahead of time, here at home (Canada)? Or should I make the reservation when I arrive in Cuba?
Both. Make it from home and confirm when you get there.
You should make the reservation when you get to Cuba, if you send an email from Canada sometimes their internet is slow and they don't get the message.
whilst in Havana, the concierge at Parque Central booked on our behalf.
If you have their number, you can book direct. Well worth the visit as I have said before, its Cuban food prepared with love. Prices are half that you would expect to pay in a Hotel.
If you are not arriving several days in advance, would book by email and then confirm when you arrive. When we went to confirm our booking the following night, it was full and had we not made the booking in advance we wouldn't have got in.
If you find an email address either would be fine! I think as long as you make it a few days in advance you will be fine
You can do it ahead of time, just be specific, if it's dinner ask for 7pm, they will email you back in Spanish but you'll see that they will put a time on there, they have an email posted on trip advisor site
After arriving- 1 or 2 days in advance
