We knew the price is going to be above average but we wanted to try because of its location. One of the dish we ordered was the octopus, recommended by the the waiter. It tasted like canned sardines. We also ordered the mixed seafood dish which is also below standard. We were expecting the view for the canon show to... More

With a selection of eight small bland dishes and no appetizers save a tasteless soup ranging in price from sixteen to twenty five dollars plus a ten percent service charge this is the classic tourist trap. The plethora of tourist guides enjoying lobster at the expense of their naive clients is one warning sign and the eagerness of hotel staff... More

Good meal in a great location, although the selling point of the 9pm cannon location is slightly oversold, as it can be heard all over Havana. Not cheap but we had a thoroughly enjoyable evening, the music was slightly different from the usual with a solo artist who sung all the usual in with a slightly folk jazz vein.

We enjoyed a very nice dinner at this Havana restaurant. We are part of a tour group but the staff was able to handle our many requests problem free. The food was very good and the service was excellent. Good place to eat in old town.

The meal here was fantastic and overall it was a great visit. Ropa vieja highly recommended and the soup was very good. They also had live music which was fun. However, when we were ready to leave we asked for the check like 3 times and it took about 30 minutes before it finally came. Overall would recommend. Was one... More

This former mansion is converted into a fine restaurant. Because of UNESCO remodeling limitations, it has a narrow stairway to the upstairs and only one (small) bathroom--but other than that it has much to offer. Our lobster entree was quite fine, and the servicce excellent. Location right next to the cathedral is another plus.

Recommended by a fellow visitor to Havana. There are a lot of stairs to access this restaurant. We sat on the terrace on a lovely warm evening. We had soup to start. Although we ordered the mixed fish platter most of our fish was lobster which was delicious. A very busy restaurant.

Our family of 4 had dinner here, on the terrace, on the recommendation of our hotel (Sevilla). The view was lovely and the food and drinks were good. We also had the luck to be seated near the solo guitarist and the music was wonderful throughout our meal.

We had a table on the terrace with a great view and lovely atmosphere. The service was good and the beef main course was good too.
