I was Not very impressed with this place! Very dirty, the smell was terrible, and difficult to have a drink. The location is great, but the atmosphere is not at the level you expect. May be I came the wrong day, may be I was not very lucky!

It is an earlier president mansion converted as a restaurant and outdoor dancing area. We were here twice on Saturday to dance salsa and did not use the restaurant. You pay 5 CUC as enterence fee to dance here. The outside area is big and by the sea. It was great. The dancing floor is made of concrete. It was... More

Went here as part of our Havana trip before heading to Tropicana club. Excellent service and food but you do have to pay for extra drinks and coffees. Only downside as usual in Cuba, only 2 ladies toilets so queues are long which can frustrate your guide when they need the bus to leave to arrive at Tropicana on time.... More

This restaurant is where our tour group stopped for lunch and what a beautiful restaurant it is! The food was excellent and a man played piano while we ate. Great ambiance. Beautiful colonial architecture. So glad we came here!

This unique mansion belonged to the de Céspedes family from Spanish colonial times, the interior rooms are magnificent. We had a lovely lunch on the back patio, great sandwiches, salad and mojitos. The views of the bay are relaxing and after eating we walked towards the Japanese style setting done in stone, corals and seashells with stunning results. At night... More

The best part of our trip to Cuba! People so fully alive dancing. And the music was great. Just loved it and the food was quite ok, too. I didn´t like to give my bag away, but got to keep a small purse in my belt. I would have liked to go there another evening, but I did not have... More

state restaurant on Molecon. Beautiful and very elegant with a 5 star service and quality of food at above average for Cuba - Excellent wine list in a adequate price. Full dinner with wine and pastries and coffee Eur 40 per person. But it's worth it if you want to come back for a time to our European standards

Beautiful setting, waterfront in an old fort looking building. But very slow service, out of most items on menu including ice, wine, pizza, yellow rice. Drinks just average. Shrimp cocktail is a martini glass full of mayonnaise with a few shrimp. The fried chicken was a big hit with the others at my table but i found it dry. I'd... More
