El Tocororo

Caribbean in Playa & Marianao

Once considered one of Havana's finest government-run restaurants, along with El Aljibe, El Tocororo has lost ground to new private competition in recent years and is often criticized as overpriced. Nonetheless, the candlelit tables and grandiose interior make a visit worthwhile, while the menu, with such luxuries as lobster tail and pepper steak, still has the ability to surprise.
