Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I went with my wife and the food was good but we found that is was pricey.You can go to places in Havana less expensive and have better food and better ambience.

We enjoyed our meal at Sensaciones, but I am surprised to see it ranked as #1 in Habana, as there are a couple other places that we liked more (e.g. Mercaderes).

Found Sensacioones with 3 days left on our trip. Ironically it was a short 3 block walk from the residence we were staying in. Our first night, our group was seated in the main dining room upstairs. There's also an outside deck. After our first...meal, we told the staff and manager, we'd be eating dinner there until we left. The next 2 nights, we had the private room reserved! What can I say? The food? As good, or better than many NY City restaurants. Absolutely delicious. The risotto with porcine mushroom, as well as the 4 cheese risotto were amazing. Croquette appetizers, either ham or crab, outstanding! The truffle steak was truly off the charts. And don't let me forget about that amazing fresh baked bread! The staff was cheerful, pleasant, and genuinely outgoing. I hope we return to Cuba again, in the not too distant future. I wish we would have found this place at the beginning of our stay, especially since it was right under our noses!More

Best food in Havana for 3 years straight now. They make sure to always have something new and exciting on their menu (even added more show cooking experiences). The prices are reasonable given it's a fine dining experience. The manager is and has been friendly...since day one. Their staff always makes sure to give it their all and are always all smiles (even with their face masks on).More

The food and the service was amazing. I particularly enjoy their ceviche and the lobster with a special sauce prepared by the chef. Despite the pandemic, they had a wide selection of wines. The service by Heissy was amazing and if I was not in...Havana, I believe that I was in the United States because she was extremely fluent in English. My Cuban girlfriend, Nora, was also extremely impressed with the quality of the menu and the service by Heissy.

We ordered two plates of prscutto Iberico as cold starter. The guy from kitchen started to make slices of prscutto which was a just one old bone with very few meet. Very funy …We stoped him at first therd of one portion saying that’s rediculos...as slices were 2x2 cm dinensions and dry and oxidated. After that we got “paeglia terra” with bad taste as bad risotto negro, too. Pig chopstics have been correct as professional young waitress. Payment … they insisted cash with very bad excange rate (-20%). This place is to be avoided in any case. You fill it cheated …and very sorry. Bad evening … last one in Havana.More

I would rate this restaurant as No.1 in Havana but not 5 star. The cuisine is fantastic...service is good as well...but....gotta make sure that what drink you ask for,you receive. Got to remember that you're in Cuba...so not everything you want they may have....problem is...they...substitute. Which would not normally be an issue....if you're told before.More
