A Cuban standby in a sea of loud music and oversized cocktails, Puerto Sagua still retains its old-school diner charm (it’s been around since 1962). On any given day, it’s packed with people on lunch breaks, tourists eating Cuban sandwiches, and locals hiding from said loud music and oversized cocktails. The seafood-heavy menu is huge, but also has plenty of Cuban classics like croquetas, masitas de puerco, and whole fried snapper.
