Local dishes and Cuban live music: Restaurant Dos Hermanos (27. August 2018)

| January 14, 2019 | 0 Comments

The “Dos Hermanos” was recommended for local food in the Lonely Planet tourist guide as well as for live music. And when I arrived, the place was already crowded although it had only just opened. I went for a “plato de mariscos” (25 CUC) which was really a massive plate of crayfish, fish and shrimp plus a small selection of slaw, cucumbers and avocado. The fish was so so but the prawns were nice and the crayfish were great.

As almost always, it comes with a plate of rice and this time it was even prepared in an optically appealing way.

What is great, besides the rather intense “mojito” (4.00 CUC) is the live music playing on stage. They are really going strong about it and you feel the happiness and positive atmosphere and vibe in the air and the whole place. However, after like 3 to 5 songs, they start walking around in the restaurant asking for money. Seems to be normal here but it’s not kind of how I like it to be. In any case, while the food is not outstanding, the place is worth going for experiencing the vibe and music of Havana.
