We were recommended by the hotel concierge. A simple restaurant with a large grill on which everything is cooked. Outside and Inside seating with AC ( small so book).
We had grilled Octopus and Avo salad,lobster main courses( two huge tails each!) with a shared bottle of wine 60cucs including service.
Attentive service from Antonio who speaks good English.
Definitely a local favourite as he hasn't spoken English for 6 months!!

On our first day in Havana, we needed somewhere to go eat close to our home. Our host directed us to Doctor's Cafe. The waiter was very nice and welcoming to our party of 9. The first red flag was the fact that there was no menu. I have read reviews about restaurants with no menu and my first instinct was to leave but with a party of 8 other first starving who am I to say no. The waiter told us what we could order and as we waited for our order he brought our pans of bread. (Please always ask if bread is free anywhere you go) we ended up paying close to $40 CuCs for bread.
When we received the bill everyone was so shocked as we didn't expect the bill to be that high considering the fact that the restaurant wasn't in a tourist area. The food was great. Some of the girls ordered Ropa Vieja which they swore was the best ever. Nice restaurant but I'll never go back and we had diner at another place for a better price. The Mojitos were great according to the ladies.

This is hands down one of my favorite places in Havana! The staff and the owners go out of their way to make sure you are having the best possible experience and they will cater to your needs. The menu is ever changing because everything on it is very very fresh, I cannot emphasize that enough. The servers are friendly and very attentive, they make helpful suggestions and help you decide on a truly remarkable meal choice.Everything is absolutely delicious and prepared to perfection. This is the best of the best in paladar experiences. I recommend Doctor Cafe to everyone who goes to Cuba, they treat you just like family!

The rains prohibited us from reaching our destination restaurant one night, however, our taxi driver said he would get us to his favorite place... Doctor Cafe! We had seafood & pork with all the delicious sides & of course, mojitos!! Excellent service, excellent food, & cool patio dining makes this a place to recommend!

I lived in Havana well before the explosion in private restaurants, and this little gen tucked away on 28 was a favourite for Cubans and foreigners. I recently re-visited after almost 13 years, tired of all the reviews of 'amazing' new places to eat which frankly are oftentimes overpriced and tourist traps.
As was always the case,Dr. Cafe did not disappoint. Good food. Reasonably priced. Quiet and peaceful. Highly recommend
