Bar-Restaurante IDEAS (Havana)

               I have to begin by saying that I have never eaten at this restaurant. We came upon it as we were walking along Linea and decided to take a peek inside. It's a nicely decorated space setup with a lounge area in front of the bar as well as the eating space & fair sized patio that overlooks Calle Linea close to the Malecon (or close enough to walk). This was a someone's house once and the buildings around it are still residential, you can see the neighbours next door going about their business on their terrace. The reasonably priced menu consists of pastas, pizzas and traditional Cuban dishes, limited fish and desserts. The wine list is small and has only 4 whites. The cocktail list is decent and competitively priced, they even have a Negroni. They don't have too many rums (6) but gin is in fashion in Havana now and they have 3 kinds of tonic waters available to go with the 6 Gins on their menu. Be aware that a gin and tonic can easily cost you $9 if they make it with Schweppes or Canada Dry tonic water instead of the local stuff. I'll be back to pick at something to eat and have a cocktail on the patio one day soon but in the meantime you can check out what the place looks like.
