"The only bad experience I had..." Cuba Restaurant Tip by LAOWAI

Cuba Restaurants: 133 reviews and 131 photos


The only bad experience I had in Cuba was eating in a 'friend's friend's house.' It turned out the food sucked and he tried to rip us off, then threated to not let us leave if we didn't pay up. But we had out way in the end.

Generally eating in people's homes is a good experience and I recommond it. Try to stay at someone's house and eat a few meals there, and learn something over dinner.

Favorite Dish: If you pay them a few bucks, they can afford to buy chicken and a smorgusburg of food for you to eat.

But the best are the Batidos. Fruit Shakes. Delicioso.

Photo: Eating in the street- usually tastey- and always so cheap you can't believe it.
