We didn't try any of their food, but the coffee and icecream was quite alright. The view however is breathtaking and definately worth a visit. Great for trying to get an overview of the city.

Recommended by a local for the view. Certainly didn't disappoint! U can stay in the bar and have a drink or a coffee if you don't fancy having a proper meal. There are bar snacks and less formal dishes too. Food is pretty good and 'snacks' are in pretty large portions.

We dined at La Torre for luch as part of a two night trip to Havana. The view is amazing both of the city and of the ocean. We were on a set menu with a limited but reasonable choice. The food and service were both good. I can't comment on the price of the meal as this was included... More

Elevator should be on the far-side (away from the Hotel Nacional)...but not lucky enough to find it working...so on to other private paladar restaurants. Should be a nice view.

I went for what was supposed to be a dinner organised by our travel agent and a welcome cocktail. I was given no choice of cocktail - Cubalibre .. as someone that isn't a cola fan - not my cup of tea (I would have preferred that) for our menu we were given an extremely limited choice - we were...

This was the second recommendation from friends we followed during a three-night stay in Havana. You can't miss it from the outside - it being among the tallest buildings in the city seperated from the Malecon (promenade) by the famous Nacional Hotel. The restaurant looks like an extension built on the roof of the large green/white apartment block. Obviously the... More

La Torre is on the top floor of Edifesca Fosca . It looks a bit ominous with the turkey buzzards circling but I guess that's a remnant from before the building was renovated . Food was mixed . Italian salad starters were superb and beautifully presented . Lobster was excellent but the beef in the stroganoff was undercooked and the... More

The view is the only good memory that we took back from this visit to the Torre!! Previous trips gave us good service & food but it looked like there was a turnover of staff as none of the waiters seemed familiar to us. The food just didn't taste fresh & none of us finished our plates. From the first... More

This restaurant is simply amazing in terms of its commanding view from the top floor. It is a perfect place to take pictures of special features such as the Hotel Nacional. The food was good, but not terribly imaginative. The beef portion was massive, but better than the Mahi Mahi.

33 floors up and worth it ! Must see views that give you the best perspective of Havana. Food and service were good. One point about wine - it is very very expensive everywhere in Cuba.
