La Mina restaurant benefits from a great location, at the corner of the Plaza de Armas, the city’s oldest square. The building that houses the restaurant was a girl’s school in the 17th century and represents a typical colonial edifice, offering it a special charm. The restaurant can comfortably accommodate 412 people. The interior is tastefully decorated in a rustic style and boasts beautiful stained-glasses.
The menu includes typical Cuban cuisine specialties, served in a typical Cuban atmosphere. You can choose among chicken, pork and prawns cooked in a variety of different ways. The dish of the house is the combo Caribeña La Mina, which is a sauté of chunks of chicken, pork, and shrimp in a tasty sauce with a hint of rum, and comes with a mojito cocktail, black beans and white rice, roasted pork with Cuban flavour, and dessert. The restaurant has a central courtyard, rich in exotic plants.
