Surely one of the very best restaurants in Havana. Located in a beautifully restored old colonial home. Wonderful atmosphere and impeccable service. Hard to decide where to start on the menu, up to you to decide. Everything we tried was superb. BTW. Best Mojito anywhere.

The food makes the dinner, but ambience makes it a dining experience. Hector, the owner, is a long time restauranteur who took advantage of economic reforms in 2010 to open this restaurant in a grand Vedado mansion in 2011. His passion for food is matched...More

Poetry in concept, flame in the heart, the stone shell can not contain the light of our spaces. Come to a restaurant to walk with bare feet and face in the clouds. Designed, served, cooked, passionate.
