Great service, fantastic food. The dishes are juicy, tasteful or perfect (not as dry as You often get other places). It has gourmet style dishes to reasonable price. Our kids wanted to go back there to have Christmas eve dinner there as well.

In our recent stay in La Habana the lunch at 'Mercaderes' was one of the good moments to remember. Good food, nice drinks, exquisite desserts in an atmosphere of peace and relax. We´re sure soon it'll be recognized as one of the best cuban restaurants....More
