Beautiful place, good value food in a central location. Live, unobtrusive music. Would definitely recommend it.

Great place for Lobster at the heart of super capital Havana. Many places to visit around. You migth come across with a street show while drinking your coctail.

Was lost in the city with my partner and stumbled upon this place, one of the best vines of our whole holiday. The food was superb and the price was very cheap, one of the first places we will visit when we return to Cuba!

Lovely environment but bed service, so slow and confused.. Food was really ok thou. We actually ate there two times…. Soups were good, lamb was nice and tender, chicken was juicy and delicious, and chickpeas with sausage also perfect. Mojito was very good too. :)...More

I rarely bother to write a poor review on here, but I'm afraid this is one place that warranted me so doing. Lovely environment, but the service was very very poor and the food frankly bizarre. The 'waiters' were desultory, and spent most of their...More

The restaurant looks rather nice inside and it is located in a pretty area. The food was fairly good however the service was the worst we’ve had anywhere. In fact, we almost just walked out. It started with the long wait for someone to just...More

A unique establishment in Old Havana, on the ruins of what was once La Habanera printing house in the 19th century. Fusion cuisine, with charcoal grilled meats specialties. An exquisite selection of Cuban and international cocktails and beverags. An unmissable food experience.
