US$ are often listed as price along with Cuban Pesos (CUP).

Never saw prices listed in euros or pounds during our 2 weeks in 5 towns.

Lots of restaurants print the currency price ($£€) on the bill they give you... Certainly in Havana... In Varadero I've seen the various exchange rates shown clearly on tables
