Fantastic lobster and interesting ravioli! The Pina Colada's were the best we've had. A very enjoyable dinner.

Walked from our ship in the port. Not too far. Small restaurant with a friendly staff.
We had the special which was Lobster and avocado with fried plantain chips. Sides of black beans and rice.
The lobster was good of course but the avacado/guacamole and the black beans were beyond delicious.
Meal and drinks were half what you'd pay at home and service was A-plus.

Donde Lis is an adorable little place in a convenient location, but the food left a LOT to be desired. It was one of the least appetizing meals we've experienced in Havana. It has so much potential, but food was simply problematic.

The "lobster" ceviche we had was clearly not lobster (and if it was, it was the most tasteless lobster I've ever had), and was served with only some dressing on a simple, single (unappealing) piece of lettuce. No garnishes, no herbs or other ingredients, just tasteless chunks of something fish-like. My fiance's chicken was unattractively presented, overcooked, and extremely plain and bland. I'm trying to remember what main course I had and can't. That says something about how memorable this meal was....

While our waiter was pleasant and friendly, as someone else noted it was extremely uncomfortable to be sitting in such a small space with three young male waiters standing in a group with no place else to look but at you.

Donde Lis has potential, with it's cute atmosphere and good location. Get the food sorted out, and find somewhere for the waiters to hang out other than staring at the diners....

We were staying in a casa just across the street of this restaurant so we dined here 3 times (1 dinner, 2 lunches).
Actually we were kind of tired of "traditional" cuban cuisine at that time so we had some seafood and soup and pasta and those were very tasty and well prepared!
Here, you can find great mix of Western and Cuban dishes. I recommend of course their cuban dishes but seafood and soups! Don't forget to have good cocktails in case.

The food was ok, but it was not worth the 6 waiters spending the entire meal staring shamelessly at my breasts. I am a 21 year old woman and it made me feel very uncomfortable. They also act like it’s strange that you want to enter the restaurant and make a sort of wall in front of the door.
