Description: Brand new restaurant , opened in February 2011. We were one of it's first customers. A 'Palador 'style restaurant located in a penthouse apartment of an of classic 1950's building; with magnificent views over the city and of the ocean. interior decor is modern1950's cool, creative, and artfully appointed. the food was excellent!!! One could could compare easily to a fine restaurant in Paris, NY or London. staff are young and attentive and gave great service.

Loved this restaurant. Havana is difficult place to find good local food but they definitely achieve to offer amazing dishes. The neighboor is safe and a walking distance from the hotels capri, nacional and habana libre. 100% reccomended.

This restaurant is TOP! And very close to hotels like Nacional, Libre and Capri (it's round the corner of Capri). Here you can dine in top restaurant, choose your wines and have very nice fish or pasta.

Cafe Laurent was difficult to find but worth it. It's on the 5th Floor of a 1950s apartment building near the Focsa tower. If you didn't know about it, you wouldn't find it. Up a rickety elevator you enter into what feels like the apartment of someone living in a 1950s dream but with white table linen and polished silverware.... More

Our concierge suggested we ate here after arriving on a long flight from London. The food was very good and set a high standard for the rest of our stay in Havana. I had the cerviche to start followed by grilled fish. Typical Cuban food that is very tasty.

Near the Hote National de Cuba it was recommended by our tour gude. We had no reservation but as we got there early we got a table on the terrace. During the evening the restaurant did fill up. Service was amazing. Really enjoyed the food, fresh and very filling, portions smaller then at other places we ate.

The food is this good everywhere you go.. It's no secret that for all it's charms (and it has many) Havana, in fact Cuba, is never going to challenge Paris, Rome, London, New York for the quality and variety of food, which makes Cafe Laurent all the more remarkable, as this isn't just good food by Havana standards, this was...

Lovely terrace and nice decor at the top of a 1950s building. I had my Cuban wedding dinner here and the food was excellent. Charming staff. Not cheap but worth it.
