El Alba

Widely regarded as offering both the best food and the best value meals in all of Santa Clara, El Alba serves authentic Cuban cuisine. All prices are in local CUP (as opposed to the CUC tourists have to use), making meals here some of the most affordable in the city for visitors.


Cuban food, like Caribbean food more generally, depends highly on rice, black beans and fried plantain, usually accompanied by a bit of meat or chicken to complete a hearty and wholesome meal. Santa Clara has an abundance of typical restaurants, as well as international restaurants serving the best of world cuisine.
