Make sure you find this address, because from the street it only looks like a stairway, and even that is almost hidden. But it leads to a very cosy dining room on the first and a rooftop terrace on the second floor. Mind you: not many tables, so do make a reservation, like we did overnoon, while in the neighbourhood... More

This has a stunning rooftop dining area. There is only a set menu with a choice of 4/5 different ones. It is very expensive for Havana and the food is good but not up to the price it charges. The lobster set menu is the best one. You do have to book for dinner- so call in during the day,... More

Our hotel concierge recommended this spot to us and we weren't disappointed. Its a rooftop dining experience, and while the menu is very limited it was delicious and well prepared. It's only a block or two from the Plaza de Armas so steps away from many "post dinner" spots for late night drinks. Its a cool little spot and I... More

nice view, good waiters, expensive and average food we payed a normal lunch for two 42 cuc, and the food was poor/average. We screwed up as we went to this restaurant because we had to go to another with the same name 100 meters away which was twice as cheaper and better.

This paladar was recommended to us by our hotel doorman and by a tour guide. You need to book. We went to book for a Saturday evening but the options were very limited so we made a Sunday evening booking. Its certainly popular and frequented by several large tour groups. Its certainly a beautiful setting and lovely views but the... More

Just had lunch there after walking the streets of old Havana. The view from the terrace is really nice. Good food, good service and very reasonable prices.

Our walking tour guide recommended this and took us to see the place and the menus. Realised at once that the menu was limited and rather dear. Mains at 18-20 CUC, 5CUC too much in my view but was very taken with the great setting with views over the sea to the fortress. When we arrived we saw to our... More

The upstairs balcony is open and overlooks the fort where the 9pm cannon is fired. Our guide recommended it for this reason and arranged a table for us at 8.30pm with the restaurant booking agent outside dressed in soldier's uniform. Not sure what success you'd have booking as an independent but perhaps I'm just a bit cynical? The setting was... More

I cant see Beyonce going back. It's OK but there are much better in Havana. Lovely rooftop terrace but can be windy. Our lunch for two with wine was 80 CUC (approx £54). We both had the pork which was OK. If you want the absolute best in rooftop eating in Havana, check out La Guarida. Best bit of the... More
