Worst service. Very rude, one even told me to stop raising my hand since they were very busy .. we went for dinner and half the menu was not available and instead of having local beer they kept pushing Heineken. We then decided to leave But of course both the musicians and some dancers came demanding tips before we left. There are plenty of other restaurants with much nicer service.

I see that many people gave this place low ratings. I actually like it a lot. The food is below average and thats the reason i’m giving it only four stars. The cuban drinks are great at $3 each, but the best part is the house band and house dancers. The look of this place is very traditional old Havana and the band is always good. I’ve sat here for hours sipping drinks and listening to the music, but i would never eat here. Always remember in Cuba that government owned establishments are not for dining. For good dining go to privately owned restaurants called paladares.

Cafe Europa serves mediocre food in a popular venue that also provides very loud, sometimes tuneful music that encourages customers to get up and dance. On a popular street in Havana Vieja it seems to attract a lot of custom that obviously enjoys what is on offer.

Took us 30 minutes to get one Cuba Libre and water. Should have cost us 3.5CUC but waiter added 1.4CUC additional tip on his hand-written check (he said 20%, lol, and lied that coctail is 3CUC).
Ofc we should not let this happen but we finally felt relaxed at the end of our journey.
I hope waiter spends that money on medicine.

Located in the heart of Old Havana, "Europa" is a nice restaurant with good prices. It is nothing special or fancy but the food is quite nice ans you won't spend too much. Make sure you know what you expect to lay at the end so you don't get some extra tips included. Fun music and dancers although did not like the hustle to give them money at the end as they were going from table to table and waiting until you leave something. Probably better for lunch than dinner as the place is simple and there are more cosy restaurants with better atmosphere.
