Fodor's Review

Named after its one-time owner Juan Bautista Taberna, this was Havana's first café when it originally opened at the very same spot in 1772. The rhythms of in-house bands Son del Trópico or Matamoros are evocative, distinctly Cuban, and pay tribute to top son singer Benny Moré. The tall ceilings, retro atmosphere, and impressive wooden cocktail bar give this resto-bar a notable place among Havana Vieja establishments. Notable dishes include butterfly lobster or creole-style

beefsteak.
