What a fabulous place hidden away on the second floor of an old building. The food was great as was the service. My husband and I enjoyed it all, especially the pinocoladas. Definitely worth a visit.

These place is pretty cool. The building is awesome and beautiful (in my opinion) A run down building with run down stairs but flowers lining the staircase and old murals of Fidel or Che quotes. The restaurant itself is upstairs and it's very nice, I got the oxtail risotto and it was yummy. This place was actual the most expensive place I went to in Cuba to eat, and the prices were about average prices you would pay for a restaurant in NY. Despite this being marked as a place with high tourist traffic, it really did not feel like that all to me, just a nice restaurant. Enjoy! .. and make reservations!

Still very good but more pricey than some other restaurants. Food portions seem to be smaller. Had a balcony table which is wonderful to enjoy a warm evening. Good service but not exceptional. Seem to be left waiting on a few occasions.

We made the reservation months ahead, . It is very recommended, very very popular. The service is great, the food just average, the place is amazing, the entrance, you feel like walking into an abandoned mansion, with marble stairs, then you enter the Restaurant and its amazing, try to book a table in the terrace, where it feels less muggy. The rooftop has a great view, chick and modern. It is that kinf of place that you have to go because it is famous. But Havana has more and more options each day.

We booked a table at this popular restaurant 2 weeks before our trip to Cuba which was a blessing because it is a very popular restaurant among tourists! The restaurant building is like a movie set. if you're a photographe - this place is a dream come true for all photgraphers and just those that want to take gorgeous pics with your phone. The food is the best we had in all of Cuba - a bit pricy but worth the dinning experiece.
