Phenomenal drinks, tapas and vibe. We had a great time chatting with the bartenders and drinking some cold beers. I also met a tour guide who now helps us organize cultural exchanges in Havana. Great experience and place.

Great food, cheap drinks, and amazing staff. I had one of the best lobster dishes of my life for 8 CUC! It was the "Surprise of the day" from the chef. Highly recommend this place. Get there early, the lines are long!

This restaurant was recommended to us by our casa owner. The queue was so long that we weren't going to wait but didn't fancy wandering around looking for somewhere else. It was worth the wait. Lovely atmosphere, tasty fresh food and great cocktails. As it...More

Based on reviews and the line of people to get in, we waited for a table in this hot, noisy restaurant. They had zero shrimp on the menu and served us canned tuna on an overpriced appetizer. Drinks were strong and pretty good. Service was...More
