If you want to taste real Cuban authentic cuisine like it was made at a Cubans home this is a place to go..

The chefs are great and they have everything from breakfast lunch and dinner and their menu has reasonable prices ,the owner is always there ,
And the waitress are very nice and attentive you can order anything from poor to fish to shrimp and the prices are very reasonable..

As an appetizer I would really recommend the Cuban tamales and the green fried bananas that are called tostones.

Bon appetit.

Locos was our last stop for lunch in Havana before heading to the airport. It is easy to miss from the street and is a quite residential area but is signposted outside.

On entering most of the staff were in the kitchen and behind the counter getting ready for work (putting their make up on etc) but once they saw us they greeted us. We got a table on the small balcony which was a great place to watch the comings and going’s of Havana below.

The menu is quite vast with a selection of Cuban and basic dishes. Could not believe how cheap everything was too! We ordered a breaded pork dish, prawns, chips etc and drinks and it was still less than the price of a fast food meal at home.

Well the dishes arrived and to say they were big portions were an understatement! Needless to say we couldn’t eat all of it and actually felt guilty for leaving what seemed like quite a lot.

The food was ok but nothing out of the ordinary.

A word of warning is that for those that are old/not steady on their feet it is a steep staircase up to the restaurant and having to come back down.

Would recommend for those looking for a cheap filling meal whilst in Havana

The food is quite delicious and the prices are fantastic. The service is also quite good as well. Lovely, if you can manage to get a seat on the balcony.

Authentic Cuban food catering towards local residents. Also great for budget travelers. the servers wear uniforms that are modeled after the national flag, new tables and chairs, fresh juice, large portions. Near the University.

I have gone to Locos por Cuba on 2 of my trips to Cuba. I make it my business to go, I had the Ropa Vieja (shredded skirt steak Cuban style) and really enjoyed it! The place is small, but the food and pricing are worth the wait. It’s such and cute place and the waitresses do a great job; highly impressed with their attitudes and service!

Fuimos a locos por cuba en los últimos dos viajes a Cuba. Siempre hago el esfuerzo, La Ropa vieja es mui buena, y disfrute mi comida mucho. El lugar es pequeño pero vale la pena esperar, por la comida y el pereció! La meseras son súper y me encanto el attitude de ellas

The only down side is they sometimes run out of things but this happens everywhere in Cuba.

Lo único malo es que a veces se acaban las cosas, pero esto pasa en todos los lugares de Cuba. ‍♀️

The reason I gave them 4 circles and not 5 is because the owner I found a tad bit rude. I asked to keep a menu in case we wanted more, and he kindly reached over our food to take it from under a piece of the plate stating that it was not a doily I didn’t curse him out, because i was not about to ruin everyone else’s good time. He was the only issue.

La razón que puse 4 círculos y no 5 es porque el dueño lo encontré un poco pesado. Me quede con un menú por si quise más, y el tranquilamente saco el menú que solo una parte pequeña de ella estaba debajo de el plato, diciendo que eso no era un doily Poniendo su mano y brazo por encima de la comida de uno ‍♀️ Fue el único problema.
