What an amazing building, at first we weren't sure if we were in the right place. But as we reached the restaurant upstairs it didn't disappoint. The food was delicious and all the different dining rooms and bars created a great atmosphere. Great venue for...More

I was really keen to eat here after reading reviews and it didn't disappoint! Really friendly staff, really cool building and the food and cocktails were great (particularly the papaya lasagna and the fish tacos). Definitely book before hand!

What about the restaurant emblem of Havana? After several unsuccessful booking attempts, we decided to go there directly, before our weekend in Vinales, for lunch and without reservation, the answer was brief, "we have no place, sorry", this, despite a desperately empty room, so saying...More

If you don't know what you are looking for, you will miss the front entrance. This place looks like, from the entrance, it is about to fall down. When you get inside, it is one the best and most unique places you will ever dine....More

The beautiful restaurant is a historic time warp and takes you back in time to the 1950s. Cozy spot for dinner, food was decent and better than most of the restaurants in Havana but it wasn't mind-blowing. I would still recommend this place for people...More

Our dinner was 150 CUC for three, which included a few drinks/beers per person. Not especially worth the high cost in my opinion.
