So I guess Beyonce made this place popular! (It was probably already pretty popular.) You have to climb a flight of stairs to reach the dining area. Most people dine on the rooftop terrace, although I believe I remember some inside seating as well. The service is good as is the food. I think the biggest draw is the setting.... More

We really wanted to have a meal outside, but the rooftop was unfortunately full, so the staff carried and set a table for us in the first floor balcony where we had a lovely meal in the sun. Both food and the views were great.

I come here for the service--our server, Joan, was very attentive and on top of things. As you may know, this is not always the case in Cuba! The waiter captain, Jose, was also very helpful. We even forgot our camera case here, and the following day they delivered it to our hotel personally--w/o even accepting the tip! Great service.... More

Location is great and it's a nice rooftop restaurant. There was a guitar player there who played an awful lot of NON-Cuban music, though....

First meal out in havana was a success due to the pleasant atmosphere and lovely views from the roof top terrace. Reasonable price and attractively presented seafood medley. Lobster, prawns and fish were tasty and certainly not over cooked as people had warned us off. Attentive staff and good location.

We got a table overlooking the bay and the Jesus Statue. We ordered the beef and it came with bread a soup first. The bread was dry and the soup had a strange brownish color and an equally strange feel and smell. I couldn’t even make myself taste it. The beef was tasteless and cold. We paid almost 40 CUC...

You don't go to Cuba in search of haute cuisine, but by local standards the food here was pretty decent. What really made the place stand out, though, was the location - a roof-top on the edge of Old Havana - and the staff whose chat was brilliant. For instance: (Me) "Do you have any Cuba wines?" (Waiter) "Sir, let... More
