Next to John lenon park you can find two floors restaurant with great vibe , great view and good food. If you have a chance to drop by - go there. We order the Cuban cuisine and the pasta - there both was good. Recommended for dinner .

I ordered a frappe lemonade. Lemonade was 1 cuc on the menu and on the bill came up as 1.50. When I asked about this they tried to convince me that frappe Lemonade counted as a "Juice" which was on the menu for 1.50. Really? Nope. I held my ground and the waitress fixed the "mistake". Not that unusual in... More

Everybody in our group of five was impressed by the food. I don't think it was only luck... I still remember, in my case, there was something with chicken and rum... :) Even if I have to say it was in 2015 (I have no possibility to go further away)... It was actually arounf Christmas of 2011. I think...

I am really confused by all of the good reviews of this place. The pictures of the outside are the same as the restaurant we went into, but people are describing going upstairs. I don't know if upstairs and downstairs are different restaurants... We sat downstairs and can genuinely say it was the worst meal we had eaten during our... More

We came across this beautiful looking place whilst walking through Havana, the staff were really friendly and chatty, which I think was to compensate for the fact that almost their entire menu was missing! They had run out of chicken, fish and many drinks ingredients including margarita, so we were basically offered pork and mojitos. We decided just to stay... More

A grande old home turned into a restaurant that looks elegant and important from the outside. There is an indoor bar & seating and seating under the veranda and on the grounds as well. The waiter and I had trouble communicating so we met in the middle and spoke in french. The menu looked like a cafeteria menu with food... More

I have eaten so many times at this restaurant. I was in Havana this past weekend and the food was horrible. In the past, it was....ok....But now in Havana with so many options and so many new restaurants, this is on the bottom of the list. Ants on the table because the tablecloth was not clean. Once the food arrived,... More
