Café del Oriente

Caribbean 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. Smoked salmon, caviar (yes, caviar!), goose-liver pâté, lobster thermidor, steak au poivre, cheese plate and a glass of port. Plus service in a tux, no less. There's just one small problem: the price. But what the hell?
