Our guide recommended this restaurant when we toured Havana last month. We asked him where we could have authentic Cuban food for lunch. He recommended this restaurant, which was located near Plaza de la Catedral, and suggested making a reservation. How right he was!

This restaurant is tucked in the back of a narrow street with a few other restaurants. When our morning tour ended, my husband and I came back here and were very glad we made the reservation earlier. We saw many people being turned away if they didn’t have reservations.

The food was absolutely DIVINE! Everything was very flavorful without being salty and the meat was very tender. Our modest bill included 10% gratuity, which took the guesswork out of tipping. I can see why this restaurant is so popular. It’s affordable, authentic Cuban eatery. Highly recommended – and be sure to make reservation!

Gracias por su recomendacion, Samuel, muy apreciado!

Located as last restaurant in a small alley, lots of tourists but still very good local food. Better try to make a reservation in advance. Loved the ropa vieja with rice and beans (best beans I had so far). Minus 1 point due to the not that friendly waiters and long waiting time for the food (although only few guests around)

We went twice and have not been disappointed. The local food is simple but great. The service is excellent, efficient and welcoming. The prices are very reasonable. Very busy so need to book. Not to be missed

The “ropa vieja” is delicious- melting in your mouth! The “croqueta de malanga “ are something you must try/ awesome. The service as always in Cuba: warm, smiling, making you feel welcome.

I had the ropa vieja and it was excellent. A great restaurant in the heart of Old Habana. Also located next to an amazing graphic arts workshop.

Make reservations the night before, as they tend to get busy. A highlight if you can get in the door!
