The service was great! Nice intimate setting, food was delicious. The coconut cheese dessert was fabulous. We ate here twice. The combination of atmosphere, food, and service was a good choice.

We were pleasantly surprised to find this restaurant. Great food, we had grilled chicken, garlic shrimp, fried fish and oxtail.... everyone enjoyed their dish. The Caipirinhas drinks were awesome. Great service. I would definitely return there!

You would not maybe see this place if you walk by. Trust the guy at the door to take you in, down a few steps into the best restaurant in Havana. Really good decoration and ambience, excellent service and superb food

Cozy restaurant, but overpriced. Each plate around $20.00 or more. Food was nothing special. We were there with our 14 year old children and their grandparents. Go to Habana 61. It's in Old Town (Habana Vieja) However, you need reservation. The address to Habana 61...More

I'd like to think of this place as a hidden gem but I think the secret is out. Night one in Havana I go to this place not knowing what to expect. I ordered the chicken breast with chocolate balsamic drizzle and asparagus cream sauce,...More
