Calle Egido No. 661 entre Jesús María y Merced
Romualdo Lalueza, a Spanish wholesaler and importer of wines and spirits, lived in this house in 1919. Lalueza had a warehouse, coffee shop and diner called "El Baturro". In 1944, Lalueza announced his business as an old and renowned company that imported top-quality Spanish wines, spirits and products in general. At present the restaurant upholds the Spanish tradition in its dishes and general decoration, though it has also included some Cuban dishes. El Baturro stands out for its long wine list and Cuban and interntional cocktails. The restaurant has a bar, a mezzanine and two lounges: one is the main gounge, and the other a more intimate private lounge.
El Baturro is a short distance from the Central Railroad Station, from where the largest and best preseved section of the old wall that surrounded Havana is still in sight. A place full of history within the limits of the oldest part of the city.

This place isn´t in any of the guidebooks and that´s a pity!
We had the best grilled lobster ever (14 CUC)
All the food we ordered was delicios and very tasty and the female waiter was doing a very good job.
A goog band was playing cuban music.
(We only got to this place because of the sweet driver of a cocotaxi who recommended this place because of the quality of the food and the cheap price - lobster costs normally 20 CUC)
Spanish(cuban) and international food - trustworthy menu
