    Los Conspiradores Restaurant

    by elsadran Updated Jun 16, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    At the foot of the Escalinata, the step road next to the Cathedral, there is a small restaurant with an outside bar open all day long.
    Sitting on the second floor balcony overlooking Plaza Mayor, I enjoyed the view of Plaza Mayor and the people passing by. My meal was accompanied by the music coming from La Casa de la Musica. It was really nice.
    The menu has a great variety and good value although, unusual for Cuba, they add a 10% service charge to your bill. The staff were attentive and efficient. The taste was above average for Cuba.
    Their dishes consist of cold and hot, mainly seafood, starters at 4-8 cucs, and main fish dishes at 12-17cucs.
    There are also some chicken dishes at 10cucs , various kinds of coffee at 3cucs and desserts at 3-5.

    Bodeguita del Medio

    by elsadran Written Jun 16, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Like the rest of the Bodeguitas del Medio, its walls are signed by many visitors. There is a pleasant patio in the back and it is popular with tourists and locals, especially in the evenings.
    A refreshing mojito, coffee or ice cream or an excellent dish of their Creole Cuban cuisine. Whatever you feel like you can enjoy it in B del M, accompanied by authentic traditional music of a live band. Food is cooked with local supplies and follow the recipes and the quality of the rest of the Bodeguitas de Medio in the other cities in Cuba and other countries. Their mojito is made in their traditional way, made known by Ernest Hemmingway.
    They cook meat, chicken and fish
    They have a cheaper menu with meat, fish or chicken, salad and rice.

    Restaurant Jigüe

    by elsadran Updated Jun 16, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    They specialise in chicken, duck and turkey. They also serve fish and lobster.
    It's a pleasant restaurant in a nice colonial house. Located in a small square, just a block of Plaza Mayor. It is formally furnished with chandeliers and high backed chairs which give it an air of formal elegancy.
    The specialty is Pechuga Caramelisada (Caramelised chicken wing) at 7cuc and Pollo 'jigüe' at 5cuc which is cooked in a clay pot with delicious pasta and cheese!! They also have a tasty Pescado Special at 6cuc!
    I quite liked Pollo jigüe, but the rest of the dishes were nothing special.
    Sometimes it was full with locals and tourists.
    Cafe 1cuc, and soup at 1.50cuc
    The inside bar is also popular....
    Good prices and good food.

    Lobster dishes are at 25cuc, fish and shrimps about 8cuc, and meat dish at 6-7cuc.
    Fruit juice and side dishes at 1 at 1cuc, deserts at 1-1.5cuc.

    La Parranda Bar Restaurant

    by elsadran Written Jun 16, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The nice smell of the pork being roasted on the spit was irresistible. Even though I don't generally eat meat I tried some bites from my friends' plate. It was juicy, tasty and the portion was generous.
    Prices are average.
    There is also a bar and live music.

    It seems to be run by the people of the Yemalla Temple

    La Canchanchara Bar

    by elsadran Written Jun 16, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A lot of its customers are usually tourists but it is also frequented by locals in the late hours when the tourists are not there. There is always a live band playing typical cuban songs and is good for a meal or a drink. We could not resist trying their traditional beverage, which gave the name to the place, made of water, lime, honey and sugar cane liquor. This is said to be the favourite drink of the revolutionaries. It was great! Snacks are also offered. A small shop is attached selling various things like cigarettes and cigars, postcards and more.
    The building was constructed in 1756, and is considered one of the oldest in the city.
    Open 10am - 12pm.

    La Canchanchara: La Canchanchara...local drink and TAVERN...

    by Greggor58 Updated Jun 8, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This little spot was likely THEE SPOT to sit and relax and listen to some music...while I was there a man was playing bongos but in another part of the tavern other instruments were set up and waiting for they're owners to show up...the tavern is housed in a building that dates from 1723..

    The name "La Canchanchara" is also the name of a drink that has been concocted here for eons...supposedly used by Slaves to give them extra strength and endurance...the drink is served in an earthenware bowl type glass and is made from honey,water,lemon.ice and Santero Cuban rum...

    Other drinks are served here but I didn't see a menu for food...

    There are clean washrooms here and a man sits outside of the washrooms to ensure that you leave a small donation for his keeping them clean...

    I think a drink cost me no more than a couple of Convertible Pesos...

    Well worth a stopover here to experience the music and for sure the beverage... : O }

    Casa maria Eugenia: Full board

    by xaver Written May 30, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Who knows me, will be surprised as I really hate the all inclusive kind of trip and the full board treatment in hotel as I think you miss the chance to try something new and you are not free because you must eat when hotel decides.
    This time we had for 5 days breakfast, lunch and dinner in this house, it was simply too good to try our luck outside.In the morning they asked us what we wanted to eat and at what time, we had lobsters shrimps and more pescado.Formally casas and paladares(small family run restaurants) could not cook lobster and some other fishes as Cuba exports them, but soon, in cuba you will know that for any former rule there is a solution "particular".
    In the backyard of the house they have a garden with lemon, banana avogado and other plants, the food was really excellent.

    Favorite Dish: Pardo, I think this is the name of the huge fish we got our last night there.

    Pizza @ Parque Céspedes: Just pizza ...

    by rafgys Written May 8, 2007

    If you’re sick of paying 1, 1.50 or sometimes even 2 CUC for a tiny and tasteless pizza… there’s a pizza place where people (mostly Cubans) eat for 5 pesos cubanos (about a quarter of a dollar). It’s on the corner of Parque Céspedes… before the CADECA.

    Taberna La Canchánchara bar.: Traditional drinks in a latin ambience.

    by wandabendik Updated Mar 5, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A few musicians assembled, asked my request which of course would be the most requested song in Cuba, Guantanamera, sang and played beautifully the trio brought tears to my eyes. The bar is mostly just a little open-air courtyard bar in an atmospheric colonial house, a good place to kick back in old wooden chairs and have a mojito or the eponymous house drink, made with aguardiente, lime, and honey.

    This is one of the most famous bars in Cuba. The name comes from a traditional drink you get there (bebida de los mambises) made out of honey and liquor. It´s rustic leather armchairs are always occupied with people that most of the time enter like troops, off the tour buses.

    Tried the bebida de los mambises, which was very nice, warms up your throat and chest.Just what the docter ordered.

    Also for the tourists, a professional Cigar roller, these can be purchased here.
    "They are very good" I heard someone say, they can be tried for free.

    Favorite Dish: No food is served here.

    Casa de le Musica: Casa de le Musica

    by Joseph69 Updated Jan 12, 2007

    Casa de le Musica is located at the top of the steps and has a nice atmosphere. It's not a bad restaurant, although the cheese on fish combination was a bit strange.

    Favorite Dish: I tried the cheese on fish (well, I didn't know it would have cheese as I just ordered the fish). Not a combination I yearn to have again as later on my trip, my stomach played up for about a day.

    Sugar cake

    by Alain_Smeets Updated Sep 14, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Well we saw a lot of people walking around with these cakes over the street and we were wondering how it tastes like. You will see that cake in all the cities of Cuba.

    So Wim and Nele bought a sugar cake and in the evening we eat it. Very delicious.

    So I would recommend buying one and tasting it, it contains a lot of sugar, but it delicious.
