Food, service, ambiance, location • this family restaurant has it all! While staying in Habana Viejo this is where I go over and over again. The food is fantastic, rum drinks perfect and you're always recognized and welcomed. I love this restaurant.

Walking thru Havana, we came across this restaurant. A quick review showed it to be promising, so we gave it a try. My wife had a seafood/rice dish, I had a pork.rice dish. I can't tell you the names, but they were all local, Cuban...dishes. The food was delicious! Service was great, and we're really glad we ate there.More

I was told that El Rum Rum was a great restaurant to try, and so on my last trip to the country I sought it out. There are many restaurants in Cuba, some good, some great. This one surpassed all expectations, and delivered a meal...experience unlike any other I have eaten in the country. The chorizo appetizer was spectacular, and the main course - flayed lobster - was absolutely to die for. I was astounded by how well it was prepared, cooked to perfection. The staff are amazing... friendly, helpful, and always attentive. If you are a rum drinker, their selection is incredible (I was smoking a cigar after my meal, and the owner Osiris suggested I pair that particular cigar with a Santiago 11. As an award-winning Habanos Sommelier, he will know best! Leave room at the end for the chocolate brownie with vanilla ice cream. The brownie may be the best I've had anywhere. Served with a cafe con leche, it was the perfect end to a perfect meal. I WILL BE BACK!!More

We had an okay meal here. My husband and I split three appetizers (croquettes, ceviche and olives/cheese). Ceviche was really good. Croquettes would have been better if they had given us more of the dipping sauce. The cheese with the olives was the usual boring...Cuban stuff. Drinks were expensive by Havana standards.More

I thought the prices were reasonable for the quality of the food. I believe dinner was between 10-20 CUC.

Sorry Ed, I didn't have contact with owner/operator so have no idea. Castro had died the same day so things were a bit off.
