The setting is wonderful. For me, this is the best dinner terrace in Santiago de Cuba. Try to get a table at the front. This is were Graham Green decided that the hotel was overrun with spys, way back when he was writing "Our man in Havana." The blue balcony on the town hall that you can see over to... More

This terrace restaurant provides excellent views over Old Santiago de Cuba with it's rich history in the square below. Best Mojitos in all of Cuba.

We took the elevator up to the top floor. We were told that it was 3 cucs each but it turned out that it included a mojito each which was very good. It is a lovely spot and the view of the town and church below wonderful.

We enjoyed several beers on the terrace while people watching all the activity in the city center. Service was excellent and it was a delightful place to experience the city.

During our 2 days in Santiago we spent a disproportionate amount of time on the terrace of the Casa Grande and quite liked it (would we have otherwise?). Yes the service is slow, but I thought most waiters/waitresses quite nice, and anyway the first reason for being here was to while away the time, as there is not that much... More

Despite its prime location right in the heart of the city center, opposite buzzing main square Cespeses: where Cubans and tourists sit, dance, sing, play music, get on Internet and have fun, this street-side terrace on state-run hotel Casa Granda's ground floor doesn't actually have the best service in town. Rather mediocre and slow, yet the view does make it... More

We had drinks downstairs on the terrace during the day before returning in the evening to the roof terrace to enjoy white rum, Cuban cigars and fantastic live music from a group which played a selection from the Buena Vista Social Club album , very evocative on a warm December evening overlooking the city's main square , Cathedral and municipal...

The rooftop terrace is a fantastic location with great views. Everything else is let down by the service, we had to chase up someone to take our orders and waited a while for drinks. Though they were nice when they arrived. There was a group of us on various small tables who ordered food separately and we all had the... More

In fairness, we had only sandwiches and appetizers at this location, and other than the fantastic fruit plate the food was only so-so. The view, however, as well as the drinks were excellent. Getting to the top floor for the roof-top terrace might be a problem for claustrophobes, as the elevator is tiny. However, it's worth it to see most... More

Besides El Morro, this is about the only other place I could recommend in Santiago. We just had a few sodas and appetizers. The food isn't remarkable but it was good service and wonderful views.
