We came here twice - once for breakfast and once for lunch and it was awesome every time! We sat outside on the patio which gave us a nice view of the malecon and the ocean. The toilets were super clean!

I'd recommend their BBQ selection - different kinds of BBQ meats (beef, pork, lamb, chicken) all of it delicious! They BBQ it fresh so there is a bit of a wait, which they warn you about when you order. The portions are huge so be careful when you order - rather share and order more (we could not finish!)

We chose the american breakfast (bacon, eggs & toast) which came with a side of sweet fresh fruit, a very delicious fruit juice and coffee. A bargain at CUC6.50

We'd definitely go here again and would most definitely recommend it!

Always a great experience. Sitting on the Malecon watching traffic and having a good meal. Pizza cooked in a wood fired oven are quite good. Most meals are prepared very well. One problem with Cuba at times they seem to over cook the meat and tends to dry out. But the view is incredible, tables on the porch or right on the sidewalk. Inside you can sit right at the front and enjoy the view. Never has really disappointed myself. Always great service from a very good staff.

This is located on the historic and road Malecón. Acoastal road that runs from the fortress to New Havana.
The Castropol is in great condition and stands out against its run down neighbours on the road
Eat lobster kebabs sitting on the second floor looking out to the blue seas. Also meat dishes and pizza.They use a wood fired oven and charcoal grill.
Fantastic Pina Colada. The drink is so dense the staw stands proud when place in the drink. Helpful staff.

We sat upstairs, staff was very attentive, first we got something else than we ordered but this was quickly corrected with apologies. Portions were large but quality of the food was not great and it was overpriced. But in all fairness a week later we dropped by just for cocktails (overpriced as well :) ) and the table next to us got very nicely looking dish so maybe it depends who is in the kitchen.

We ate here at various times in the past fortnight - both upstairs - looking down on the Malecon and down stairs (inside off the street, which still had good views) and could not fault the food or the service. Service is second to none, and the food fresh and delicious. Too many cocktails to mention, but the ones we had had did the trick and the beer is also served ice cold - delicious. Its a fabulous place to eat and if you get the waiter Noel your very lucky. He takes the orders without pen or paper. All the staff are helpful, efficient and pleasant. Restaurant was full of visitors all ages and nationalities.
