The restaurant itself is set in a delightful building, with eclectic style and lovely atmosphere. The steps up to the restaurant are strewn with fresh rose petals and the eating area has beautiful tiled floors and large old fashioned dressers, whilst a collection of paintings adorn the walls. There is an internal staircase with potted plants and massive melted candles... More

My husband and I ate here for lunch. The quality of the food was great, however, I ordered the "crispy tacos" which were on special that day and the serving size was so tiny. I am not a huge eater, but the portion was 2 small tacos with no side options. Perhaps I just made a poor choice and other... More

This place was almost double the cost of every other place we tried. So, what were we paying for? The service was by far the best we encountered, the decor was far from the shabby chic of the other locations. A much more sophisticated design - and very pleasant too. Unfortunately, a group of 8 very loud Americans sat at... More

We found this restaurant while walking through Old Havana. It is on the second floor (not handicap accessible). What a great experience! The food was delicious- we had the ceviche, the ropa vieja, plantains, etc. It came out quickly and piping hot. The service was top notch and ranks among the best we had experienced during our entire time in... More

This wonderful restaurant came recommended both in our guidebook and by a friend, and it did NOT disappoint! It was the best meal of our 12 day trip, and I wanted to order a second plate (smoked pork) for dessert. It is a beautiful setting in the middle of old havana. There was live music which added great ambience. It... More
