Down the street from the famous staircase at the entrance of the University of Havana and passing by the 4You bar-restaurant, in barely two minutes you get to a paladar (private restaurant) called Locos X Cuba (Crazy for Cuba), a place with extremely national appearance and taste.
It’s a sure thing that one of the most striking features regarding Locos X Cuba is how colorful and traditional its decoration is, with bright stained-glass windows, funny paintings with African motifs and photographs of previous visitors all around. If you choose to sit at the balcony, you will be able to enjoy your dinner contemplating the comings and goings of the popular old American cars (known as almendrones) along San Lázaro Street.
Locos X Cuba specializes in Cuban cuisine as well as in pizzas. More than ten different dishes made with pork make up the menu and vouch for that, besides just as many other recipes made with chicken, beef and fish, all of which are seasoned with a peculiar and distinct flavor.
To go with your order and to give it a 100% Cuban touch, you can ask for the classical green plantain chips, the delicious fritters made of malanga (taro), the traditional pork scratchings or the garbanzo (chickpea) stew, all typical dishes of the national cuisine.
Soft drinks, natural juice and beers make up the beverage menu, besides the inevitable coffee of course.
Average Price: 7,00 CUC
