This restaurant is beautiful and the service was excellent, located near cruise terminal in the pigeon square. We had delicious cuban espresso and ordered dessert ice cream with rum, the waiter turned off the lights and lit our dessert up it was a beautiful presentation!

Upscale restaurant in Old Havana. Food was great. Staff professional, but not very friendly. Live band good. I had chicken breast, white rice (not usual rice you get with beans) and garbanzo beans with peppers and zucchini. Flan was incredible.
