Description Restaurants: Hanoi, Havana . Cuba
Traditionally known as "The House of the Vine" for the beautiful vine that grows in its inner courtyard, this small 17th-century colonial house is a nice and welcoming restaurant specializing in Cuban dishes and Vietnamese fried rice. Located on a corner of Santo Cristo Square, a place of traditions and processions dating back to 1640, the Hanoi rekindles Havana's fondas (cheap diners) with their abundantly served, tasty and cheap food. The restaurant has two lounges, an inner courtyard and a bar where you can enjoy the most refreshing drinks in the shade of the vine to the beat of live Cuban tradicional music. A short distance away from the national Capitol building, this picturesque house with its red roof tiles warmly welcomes its visitors.

Hanoi is located in Havana
Capital of Cuba and the country's administrative, political, cultural and scientific center, it is also the capital of two provinces: City of Havana and Havana. Though only around 280 square miles (727 square kilometers) in size-0.65 percent of the archipelago's total area.
The Old Havana and system of forts led UNESCO to declare it a part of world heritage in 1982. Founded on its present site in 1519, the settlement of San Cristobal de La Habana prospered mainly due to its bay, which was a natural port of call for ships sailing to and from the New World. Starting in 1634, because of its strategic location, San Cristobal de La Habana was considered the key to the New World-as attested to by royal letters patent-and the main defense of the West Indies.
The Cuban capital consists of an immense number of buildings in a wide range of architectural styles, built in the course of nearly five centuries. These styles range from the pre-baroque to the baroque, neo-Gothic, neoclassical, eclectic, art noveau and art-deco, to the modern.
Alejo Carpentier, one of Cuba's most famous authors, called it "the city of columns" and focused attention on its streets, which he considered a perennially rich show of life, humanity and contrasts that was bound to entertain any observer.
Over 14 kilometers of excellent beaches lie to the east of the Cuban capital. To the south, a green belt contributes to a healthful atmosphere.

Review about Restaurants: HanoiAverage
Definitely in the slightly dodgy category even if this simply reflects enthusiasm of the touts to get you inside. Certainly the claim to be Vietnamese is tenuous at best. It is, however, cheap and eatable offering the best value in Old Havana.
