Are you wondering what the kids can eat on your trip to Cuba? Cuban food is not world renowned. Chances are you are not traveling here for the gastronomic experience but rather to visit the beautiful beaches. The food at the resorts can be bland and poor quality (although some hotels do of course offer tasty meals).
When you tire of the hotel buffet then check out some of the local restaurants with your family. We have found some of the best food in Cuba to sample when you travel with your kids. If you are traveling with picky eaters, don't worry there is lots of delicious food.
There are not any familiar chain restaurants, however you will find restaurants offering pizza, hamburgers and fries. Pack some familiar snacks from home for the little ones. And you can't go wrong with all that delicious fresh fruit.
A lot of restaurants serve a starter salad of shredded cabbage, carrots, cucumbers and other vegetables, which can be drizzled with oil and vinegar. Many restaurants offer grilled fish, lobster, grilled meats (chicken, beef, pork) and accompanied with rice (white or with black beans) and fries.
You will be able to get fresh fruit juices at most restaurants such as orange, mango and pineapple juices. Domestic soft drinks are available (diet sodas can be hard to find) at usually a lower price then the imported versions. Homogenized boxed milk is available at grocery stores in the tourist areas.
