Good vegan option

This was recommended as one of the only places that have vegan breakfast so I decided to give it a try. There was not much of a menu, you just tell them you want whatever the vegan option is and I think they just take whatever vegetables they have and mix it together with yuca and eggplant. There's a choice of sauces to go on the side which are guava, papaya or something spicy. I don't know exactly what it was that I was eating but it was pretty good. I would come back. I think they do the best they can with the resources they have.

Pros: Cool decor, Friendly staff, LGBT friendly

Cons: Very few menu options

Un mojito grande :)

We visited this place a few times: for breakfast, brunch and for mojito in the evening. We most enjoyed the mojito, it was big and rich, and sitting was nice!

Pros: Friendly staff (except the tall waiter)

Cons: The tall waiter could have a better attitude!

One good option

When i went to eat here it was a little later in the day, they had three options to order from and they were all meat options. I asked if they had anything for vegans or vegetarians the server was knowledgeable and offered a pineapple vegetable salad. This appeared to be vegan but obviously can’t be sure. It was absolutely delicious though, very glad i tried this place but disappointed that they did not have any beans or other plant based protein. I believe they offer a larger menu earlier in the day so maybe go for lunch or early dinner and you’ll have better luck.

Pros: friendly staff, accommodating and knowledgeable

Cons: almost no options

Nice place with some vegan options

Fonda Al Pirata serves only a few vegan meal options, like hummus with vegetables, vegan burger and a vegetable plate. The dish named Botija Pirata de Vegetables is a warm vegetable plate with a pumpkin sauce and banana hummus and was super tasty! They also serve a big variety of fresh juices and smoothies. They are located in beautiful street in old Havanna and they have an outside area to sit and an inside area, that is decorated in a cool and creative pirate style.

Pros: Vegan options, Beautiful place, Good drinks

Cons: Just a few vegan options, Not all Vegan dishes are marked as vegan

No vegan food available this season

The atmosphere and music is good. The staff are helpful and eager to please. Both times I went, no vegan food was available. Considering Covid has affected the tourism numbers and the food shortages in the country, this is understandable so I don't want to give a negative review because of it.
The smoothies ($8 cdn) and coffee ($3 cdn) are the best in Cuba. They also have lots of vegetarian options made with eggs and cheese. As a vegan, this isn't an option. They offered to make toast and veggies but that wouldn't be worth the $15 Canadian it would of cost with the current currency exchange.

Pros: Amazing smoothies and good coffee

Cons: No vegan food available both times I went

Slim pickings

Its lockdown here in Havana but El Pirata is serving takeaways, including some vegan options for us under catered for minorities!
Anyway. This restaurant cater for all diets. Its signature vegan burger was not available. All the meat options were. They had a hummus and veg dish bit no hummus. I was given a vegetable mix with toast that was under seasoned. Redeeming feature was a fantastic fruity smoothie

Pros: Friendly

Cons: Few vegan options

good vibe

The vibe here is very good, especially with a lemonade hahaaa! we ordered "Vegan Burger", the whole burger is made of black bean paste, although it is too loose, it spreads out after a bite 😅 but the taste is unexpectedly delicious ~
