In the Callejon del Chorro (a former public fountain in the city) and just around the corner from the four-century-old San Cristobal de La Habana cathedral, this small restaurant revisits Cuban specialities with talent and modesty. You cannot miss it: right up against a stone screen-printing workshop (which is well worth a visit), it is the only restaurant in this small street.
It has a friendly terrace, a welcoming atmosphere, charming decor, an art gallery upstairs and dishes named after painters. Try a mojito (delicious) to start. Then order the famous beef-based ropa vieja, which is served with a hearty salad or lamb simmered in red wine.
For dessert, go for a very generous plate of fresh fruit. Decidedly unbeatable.
