This restaurant is Cuba's version of upscale, its located on the last floor of an apartment building and lends it self to lovely views of Vedado. They have a host that escorts you in the elevator and with a bit of luck there was an empty table so i was immediately seated. Here is a tip: if you like Seafood... More

This restaurant was our biggest disappointment in Cuba. Although highly recommended by both our guidebook and our casa host, it just did not deliver as promised. One soup that was supposed to be hot was initially served at room temperature, our grilled fish was overcooked, and the red house wine was almost undrinkable. Service was not swift (and a little...

We were there for Valentine's night, booking worked fine, service was reasonable but the quality of main dishes was not quite what we hoped for. Lobster was served with fish, not shrimps, as they did not have them, and it was swimming in a not so nice sauce that killed whatever delicate taste the lobster has. I took a typical... More

We had a wonderful lunch here in this new and "fashionable" restaurant. It was one of our favorites in Havana. I would happily go back again.

This place has a nice view and linen tableclothes and they are very full of themselves. The staff does not exhibit one bit of the warmth and friendliness we found elsewhere in Havana, the prices are high, the portions are small and the food, while fancy, is bland. I wouldn't go back.

Good not great. Walking distance from Hotel Nacional. Food was better than Nacional - though to be fair we did not dine at Nacional's best restaurant. Had dinner. Fish good, service good. Very friendly

This is a family run business. The restaurant have mostly tourists, and was included in our tour. It was a big surprise since the food was excellent, fresh and the service was very friendly and professional. Great cocktails and desserts. Very nice feeling, seating at the terrace with the views of New Havana (Vedado). We strongly recommend.
