Interestingly this is certainly not a snack bar anymore - I understand the prices have gone up since it appeared in the various guide books and they've made it more of a regular tourist restaurant. The food we had was reasonable but nothing special.

Great place, lovely vibe. We mostly ate the local cuisine (pork, ropa vieja, yuca, flan) and ignored the Italian aspect of the kitchen. Great food. Always have been a great fan of Cuban cuisine and this one could not get better. Great service, nice location across Habana Libre Hotel in Vedado.

We went to Waoo on a recommendation from TripAdvisor and weren't disappointed. The service was excellent and the meal was very tasty and good value for money. We had the $20 cuc set menu each and a couple of extra drinks totalling $50 cuc. Yummy!

I have praised this paladar many times in my reviews even proclaiming it the number 1 restaurant in the area. I still feel this way even though I was a bit let done on my recent visit in June. I went with a friend who prior to eating at Waoo had two excellent experiences eating fish/seafood at Chicken Little in... More

As a vegetarian I found it hard to eat well in Havana - but the menu at Waoo is great. Not a typical Cuban restaurant so don't go there if you're looking for a slice of Cuban life. It's modern and stylish, the food is really good, the cocktails are excellent and the service is great too.

We knew this place was near the Habana Libre Hotel so we looked for it when we were on the city tour bus, it is exactly opposite the hotel, as the bus approaches hotel is on your right and snack bar on left,. we were lucky as we were stuck in traffic and when we saw Waoo we jumped off.... More

As in other restaurants we experienced that due to the many tourists in town service & kitchen drops. It's not bad, but we won't go there anymore. Better food and friendlier service is provided for the same prize in other spots of the town.
