Rarely eat lobster but it almost seems a staple diet for visitors - mostly they were over-cooked but La Imprenta did it well - went back for lunch and enjoyed the shrimp. Lovely open setting in an old building - good service and they know how to make a mojito.

This was our local bar whislt stopping at the Meson de Flota. We ate here one lunchtime and the food was tasty. Most of the staff were friendly and the drinks were reasonably priced. It was interesting to see some of the old printing equipment displayed in the bar.

We went for dinner and ordered kebabs and drinks. Service was really slow and food took so long to arrive on table. Moreover, the meat wasn't tender or tasty. The setting though is very nice, as well as the atmosphere. It is usually full, so plan in advance.

Though not a paladar this restaurant offered the best camarones I had while visiting Havana. The service was a little bit slow as we were late but all in all we have had a very fine dinner in this nice restaurant.

This restaurant is an old printing house and has a number of antiquated pieces of machinery as decorations. It also has intriguing newer printing inspired decorative touches and a pleasant open courtyard in the middle. The food we had was very nice, although there were a few things on the menu they didn't have. The only improvement could have been... More

I go there whenever I'm in Havana. The venue is quite original with many old printing presses and other equipment. The seats are in the shape of letters so it's visually very interesting and the restaurant area is open to a small garden area and Mark Escher style of steps leading nowhere. Food is good and inexpensive, served by fairly... More

The La Imprenta is a fomer printing works and the interior is amazing, to rival any restaurant in major cities aroud the World. The food is excellent and at reasonable prices. The staff are very welcoming and again excellent. I would go back every week if it was in London.

Food was excellent, I had the chicken curry which was like the curry my boyfriends nana cooks (she is Caribbean). The restaurant itself was really nicely decorated staff spoke limited English but they were still helpful and friendly, worth a visit and highly recommended.

Visited this restaurant 5 times at out last stay in Havana. The location is great, and the interior is good as well. The prices are awesome, and the food is great as well (did only try meat courses). Cheap drinks, and magnificent Creme Caramel. Definitively worth a visit!
