We were recommended this restaurant by the concierge in Hotel Capri and it was amazing! Located on the top floor of an apartment block, very hidden and the true meaning of a ‘hidden gem’. I had the lamb casserole which was delicious with so much...More

this place disappointed a little. the venue is pretty and popular. perhaps we caught it on an off-night. Half the menu was not available (out of fish, for example). Service was ok - but didn't have that cuba friendliness. Wine list may be the best...More

This is a fairly highly rated and regarded restaurant in Habana. Acknowledging that there isn't significant food diversity in Cuba, you need to make up for it in experience. Here, the food was just ok and the ambiance so-so. Cocktails were watered down. They did...More

Very nice place with good food and wine. Reservations are necessary as the place is almost always full. The best dish was the sampler platter. The portions are huge, consider sharing. I had the lobster, could only eat half of it.

It would take you an hour an a half to eat depending on how many you are and probably 10 minutes to walk to Parisien cabaret.

Description
Brand new restaurant , opened in February 2011. We were one of it's first customers. A 'Palador 'style restaurant located in a penthouse apartment of an of classic 1950's building; with magnificent views over the city and of the ocean. interior decor is modern1950's cool, creative, and artfully appointed. the food was excellent!!! One could could compare easily to a fine restaurant in Paris, NY or London. staff are young and attentive and gave great service.
