4 of us visited for cocktails starters and mains at 8pm- so friendly, great live music and the food WOW - the pork medallions on aubergine were the best pork I have ever had - great atmosphere and lovely building - no Wi-fi no outside seating but don’t worry !
Prices ok, lower than Familla restaurant opposite and food much much better

Some things that set Van Van apart from other Havana dining experiences:
- good quality meat that was presented very well
- a mix of traditional cuban flavor and more 'foodie' options (i had the curry chicken and loved it)
- nice bathrooms
- decor that felt fresh and still very much like we were in Havana (some of the newer bars/restaurants have a really boring style that i think is a lam attempt at 'modern')

i thought this meal was a great value for the price!

We've been to Van Van twice, because we've liked that place that much.

First, we've tried "tostones rellenos" and some mojito, and both were delicious (be careful, mojito is quite strong in Cuba). Second time we've got there to eat a little dinner and have those delicious drinks again - also had a chance to listen to Carlos y Son Callejero band playing live, including "Chica de Ipanema" which made that day one of the best during our 2-week visit.

This is THE place I will be recommending anybody to go if they are visiting Havana!

Dish are good but not the best one in Havana although they are a bit more expensive. Very busy especially in the evening.

We by chance on St. Patrick's day stumbled on this bar and had a terrific time. The had music from 4 pm to 8 pm. The staff was fun and the food was good (chicken crochets were fantastic!).

We had a laugh as all the "Cruise" people walked by and turned their nose up no knowing how much fun was going on on the side, their loss.

Highly recommend this hidden gem!
