This popular tourist restaurant is a pleasant surprise. The fixed-price pollo asado El Aljibe (CUC$12/US$13/£6.50) is the way to go here. Served all-you-can-eat family style with white rice, black beans, fried plantain, French fries, and salad, the slow-roasted chicken comes in a wonderful, slightly sweet-and-sour garlic mojo (gravy) that goes well over the rice. This place serves busloads of people on a regular basis, and despite the assembly-line efficiency of the operation, you can still enjoy the pleasant open-air restaurant, with its tall, steeply pitched thatched roof and rustic red-tile floors. Sure there is a handful of meat and seafood options, but trust me, stick to the house specialty.
