Nothing extraordinary, but good food and decent service, which was a pleasant change from other restaurants visited in Havana. I ordered the lasagna, ($17) which was pretty tasty. No bread served with the meal.

The Cuban oldies-- a la Buena Vista Social Club-- revue is terrific-- lots of crowd-pleasing tunes. Much, much, much better than tthe Sociedad Rosalia which is the competition and has awful acoustics and awful food. You DON'T go to Cuba for the food!
