This was just next door from our hotel , and we'd seen Simon's review on line. The setting of a re-built print works is very stunning and a good accompaniment. Food and service were a little less impressive - they forgot our salad and rice and beans were predominant

being a designer, and loving letters... i loved la imprenta's ( print shop) image and decorations so it was a lovely place to be in, the chairs are shaped as letters, and some have phrases on their backs, they have an original letter press ... the food and service were just ok.

We enjoyed our lunch at this restaurant. It was situated in the old city close to attractions. Food very nicely presented & delicious. Drinks were well priced & cold.

Looked great from the outside so thought we would give it a go. Really wished we had just walked past. Wife ordered soup followed by chicken salad. Brought the salad first most of which she left as the chicken tasted bad! As some one who eats soup non stop even she said how can they mess up a vegetable soup... More

We randomly nipped in here for a spot of quick lunch before our next transfer out of the city and found that we were pleasantly surprised. We had previously experienced mediocre food in the city and this place was a refreshing change. We had the lamb stew and the frutti di mare which we were both very pleased with as... More

Went into this restaurant as escape from heat of the city. Food was OK, but nothing special. I had shrimps, my husband had fish. No aircon, but pleasant shady courtyard.

Housed in an old printing works, it makes for a good ambience. The food ranges from excellent to ordinary - depending on your choices. I had the lamb stew, which was nice, but the salad was awful. Worth a look.

This place was a mixed bag. The stewed lamb was very good and the kebabs were fine. The chicken curry was not anything I would recognise as curry. A pepper, serrano ham and blue cheese salad was pretty horrible, with hardly any serrano. The spaghetti frutti di mare was nice. The atmosphere of the place was good - it is... More

Has nothing to do with similar places (restaurants). You should ask for Chateau Steak, it tastes like heaven.

The food is nice here but the main reason we kept returning is the cocktails. OK, I know no self-respecting bartender is mean with the rum in Cuba but the guy behind the bar here pours from the elbow. 2 cocktails each before lunch and we were as silly as sheep and all for the price of one far inferior...
