This restaurant is in a beautiful, grand colonial building which once housed the Bacardi family and is worth visiting for the ambiance alone. A surly pianist played all the usual Cuban standards and we were unable to entice a smile from him despite our appreciation...More

Except for the building in which it's located and a rather pretty entrance, this restaurant has nothing to recommend it. The food was not very good, and we ended up sending back one of our dishes. The service was slow, and inattentive. There was a...More
