Description: Al entrar a este restaurante, el visitante es sorprendido por la elegancia, buen gusto y las mas nuevas tendencias en la presentacion de los platos y el servicio. El primer atractivo del lugar, amen de la cocina, es el paisaje privilegiado con una vista unica de la desembocadura del Rio Almendares y el Torreon de la Chorrera. La decoracion, concepto y distribucion de los muebles y hasta el mismo ejercicio del arte culinario parecen puestos en funcion de lograr una experiencia exclusiva entre el rio y el mar.

The meal I had, fish and octopus was very well cooked and tasty, one of my friends ordered a grilled fish and the other a shrimp dish, everything was fresh and of great quality, the... More

Located right on the way.er in Miramrar section of Havana,this restaurant does sea food and fish as well as "turf" dishes really well. Modern clean setting with nice service and usual prices of $20-30 per person.

We were highly recommended by Cuban friends. We were three and one Cuban from Habana among us. We unanimously found the food excellent! Besides, the view was nice and the service was great.

The place is located where the Almendares river enters the sea, nice terrace overlooking the water. Alejandro is an excellent sommelier, the place offers good vine selection. We had more visits and each visit the restaurant offers something special. Worth visiting.

I previously visited mid-December 2013 at night for dinner with a group of friends. The quality of the food and service was very good and on a par with that expected in Europe and USA. I was curious to see if this was a one-off because restaurants in Havana frequently have varying standards depending on which team of cooks/waiters are... More
