There are a lot of bars, clubs and restaurants that I could include here (take a look at my travel guide at Christmastime if you want), so I will just include some of those that I have heard positive things about from other travellers.
Good, very cheap Cuban food. Mainly frequented by locals. Avenida 3, entre Calle 28 y Calle 29
El Bodegon Criollo
Barbeque food. Good service and less expensive than average. Avenida de la Playa, esq Calle 40
A restaurant in a cave. Really good wine here. Food is mainly skewers (beef, pork, etc.), rice and breads. Reviewer sounded really happy with it. Parque Josone - 1ra Ave. E/58 y 59
Pizza! Reviewer seemed really happy with it. Prices about average. Centro de Convencione - Plaza America
Good Italian food. Seems to be a lot of variety! More dishes are less than $10.
Chinese food. Nice atmosphere, food is ok by Canadian standards. Bit expensive.
Seafood restaurant. Nice ambiance, close to the ocean, live music. Calle 59, Avenida Playa
Cueva del Pirata
"The Pirate's Cave" seems to be a pretty popular place, many people mention it. There is a tropicana-style show at the beginning of the night, and then a dance bar afterwards. Mixed reviews on the show, but the bar seems pretty popular.
Dance lessons! Another popular place. $10 to get in, includes an open bar. Differing reviews on the music; some say mostly Cuban, some say not enough Cuban. Carretera de Las Morlas, km. 14
Pretty popular, mostly American music. $10 to get in, open bar.
