Don't confuse this location, now Casa Club (formerly Biltmore Yacht Club) with Club Havana (formerly Havana Yacht Club). Confusing, I know. I used to belong to the latter in my youth and got confused when I got here. Has a great computer/office area & that is all I used. I did not eat there, but my driver said they had... More

Basically a private club that is used by foreign diplomats and their families plus some wealthy locals and foreigners doing business in Cuba. The place has a great restaurant with inexpensive and pretty reasonable food, though nothing amazing. Great cocktails at the beach bar; a pretty good beach considering this is ten minutes drive from the city center and a... More

After a long walk in the streets of the old town, or far away from the bang bang of night clubs in centre havana, this club is ideal to finally chill on the beach. Make no mistake: the sea side is no match for the faboulous caribbean beaches you may find on the many cayos around here; possibly not even... More

An old beach club for the rich and wealthy right on the beautiful white sandy beach with clear warm water surrounded by palm trees - perfect! Inside it's old fashioned and beautifully decorated. Lovely spot for lunch on the terrace - we were in a large group but were served very promptly by heaps of staff plenty of cold beer... More

In Club Habana there are three restaurants - Chelo, La Cafeteria and the sports bar La Bodega. All three serve average food with Cuban state service. However, staff is friendly and Chelo and the cafeteria is beach side. If combined with a dip in the sea it is definitely worth it. One of the few beaches in Havana, but entrance... More

Club Habana was once the classiest private club in Havana serving rich tourists and diplomats, but that was 60 years ago, and although it retains some of its old glamour, the club is in need of a major overhaul if it wants to remain relevant for the expected tourist onslaught. It's a half-hour drive from Central Havana and while the... More

The only good thing is the chocolate cake. Get this far out of Habana and do yourself a favour, go further. For the hardy, on the West walk to the beach, on the left wall, about half way down, there is an amazing B&W photo of an IOD or similar yacht playing poker with the sea wall. A stunning photograph.... More

Description
Very good restaurant. Lonely Planet review
El Chelo is situated in the swanky Club Habana. Perched in front of the sparkling Straits of Florida and a well-raked scimitar of private beach, El Chelo serves everything from a cheap, tasty ropa vieja to a pricier (but still tasty!) lobster. The decor is suitably luxurious.
Nice Wine Bar, smoking cigar and excellence playa and pool side.
