Last attended this restaurant during the long hot summer of 2003. Lucky enough to get one of the two tables outside. Returned last night 13 years on, quiet backwater, same table, black bean soup, tasty fish dish, half a carafe of red. Very good.

Nothing special, even my son could cook better than that. The place is so disorganised. The best part of the dinner were the pictures. I can't understand how thy could take those horrible pictures of Cuba. But the waiter was very kind
