I visited this restaurant with my friends and we met with horrible service. We waited long time for menu. Then we waited very long time for our food. Finally two orders were wrong and my friends did not get their dinner. We disgusted left this restaurant. My hungry friend was really angry.

We only had drinks here so can't comment on the food. Drinks were promptly and efficiently served. The music at roof-top level was great -- combining saxophone with Cuban style, made a great sound. There were great views from the roof-top. Access is up a tight spiral staircase so take care!

Lovely terrace, really good live band, delicious chicken dish with tropical fruit that was the house speciality, free house cocktail much nicer than the mojitos I've had here so far, friendly service - definitely worth a visit.

The view is very nice, but the meal card is not that special. I had a soup and it was very delicious!! Attention: the portion is very big! The musicians are so sweet and nice, made our day wonderful. Somehow we got sick, we believe it was the salad. I recommend not eating the salad.

the food was good here and the staff very friendly. Although there wasn't much space they still managed to get a 5 piece band up there and there was people dancing too. Great atmosphere and can recommend a night here - if you can get in!

Discovered this great rooftop bar and restaurant searching for somewhere cool from the heat. All staff so friendly and helpful. They even had wifi and were happy for us to use it for a small fee. Gorgeous sunset, great food and cocktails and really good band.

The place is wonderful. The terrasse is ideally situated to watch the sunset on Trinidad. The food is good and every evening, there are groups of musician who play an excellent music. At the end of the service, everybody dances, tourists and waiters, musicians. Top atmosphere. Bernadette V., France

Mariela and her staff made our stay in Cuba the most memorable of all the places that we traveled to. Such a great example of how warm and welcoming the Cuban people are. It was a lovely way for us to experience the culture of this small old city, as opposed to staying in a large hotel. El Rintintin (the... More
