Food is below average for Havana and service is slow and poor. The surroundings are wonderful so would suggest you stop by for a coffee and a cocktail.

Visited this place when we were staying @ Casa Mer. Very friendly staff who were knowledgeable and recommended some great dishes on the menu. Reasonably priced and great burgers. If your staying in the area definitely recommend dropping by!
