From its beginnings as the 19th-century Europa Café, the onetime famous colonial-style café and candy shop has reopened as a restaurant serving Cuban and international cuisine. As is typical here, a band plays live Cuban music, greeting visitors walking down Obispo toward Port Avenue. Dishes include basic grilled chicken fillets, traditional Cuban hashed beef, and simple sandwiches that are cooked in an open kitchen by Chef Luís Enrique. There is an extensive cocktail list and an impressively stocked bar. As is often the case in Cuba, the restaurant even sells tobacco products.
