Lonely Planet review

'Old clothes' is a name that has never really done justice to Cuba's famous shredded-beef dinner (ropa vieja) . There's certainly nothing old or clothes-like about the dish here, or the equally tasty shrimp in red sauce for that matter.

While the Mesón has the edge on food, the Santa Elena wins the Oscar for location, as it's set on a charming riverside patio in front of the city's famous packhorse bridge.
