Café del Oriente

French in Habana Vieja

A posh, elegant side to Havana greets you as you walk through the door at this long-standing state-run establishment in Plaza de San Francisco de Asís. Options include smoked salmon, caviar (yes, caviar!), goose-liver pâté, lobster thermidor, steak au poivre, a cheese plate and a glass of port. Plus there's service by gents in tuxes.
