Nice restaurant with a wonderful terrace on the roof of a building. Excellent service. Good food. Average price of 30 dollars per pax.

Although the prices are higher than most in Havana, the food is not correspondingly better. It’s good, but not special. Excellent gazpacho but poor lobster (tough). Good service, nice rooftop location but the view is nothing special.

I have always wanted to eat at this place after seeing the white billowing curtains blowing in the wind from below. So my expectations were met with the beautiful view, soft wind, good food and drink and great staff.

Very close to our hotel. Wine, appetizer, dinner and dessert all great. Service was spectacular. Beautiful view, we enjoyed sitting at the bar overlooking the city instead of a table. Loved it.

Higher than the average prices in Havana, but it is certainly worth it.

It would take you an hour an a half to eat depending on how many you are and probably 10 minutes to walk to Parisien cabaret.

Brand new restaurant , opened in February 2011. We were one of it's first customers. A 'Palador 'style restaurant located in a penthouse apartment of an of classic 1950's building; with magnificent views over the city and of the ocean. interior decor is modern1950's cool, creative, and artfully appointed. the food was excellent!!! One could could compare easily to a fine restaurant in Paris, NY or London. staff are young and attentive and gave great service.
