We were a table of 15 people and showed up without a reservation. The server was very attentive and quick to arrange a table for us. The service was excellent throughout the night and the food was very tasty and well presented. Definitely a place to visit while in Cuba.

The food was ok, the price is not for cubans but for tourist, They don't have national beer, only imported, the person who takes care of your car charge 1 CUC, when everybody knows that you give to the parking person what you wants, they should have a sign that the parking cost 1 CUC, maybe for tourist is ok, but not for cubans with an average of 13 CUC per month.The service was a little slow, the waitress looks confuse. They add 10% service to your final check, Why? And them the waitress will expect to receive tip? The 10% is for the employees? Who knows? This is not a Cuban standard, Cuba is a poor Country and the prices should be lower.

Been to Havana maybe 20 times and almost always eat at El Idilio. Vedado location is good from many areas. Ropa Vieja really good - companions often eat from daily specials. They take reservations - which is good during high season or peak dinner hour.

Close to Casavana, great place to dine, most dishes are cooked outside so you are able to see the process. The staff us friendly and efficient.
