Go for View. Stay for Meal.

A beautiful view on the terrace over the water. Food was excellent value for price (entrees $13-$25), and wait staff was patient and attentive. When there was a cab issue at end of meal, restaurant called a cab which arrived quickly and the driver serenaded us back to our hotel.

I was looking forward to eating here: in a spectacular setting overlooking the water at the lower end of Miramar, looking across to the Malecón. Even more so as it came highly recommended. It was a very disappointing evening. For starters I had the sopa de mariscos - seafood soup. It was watery, with a nasty peppery aftertaste. Now, I... More

I have been twice in this restaurant, once for lunch and the second one for dinner. The location is really exceptional, with a awesome view over the river and the sea. The service is very good, with well trained staff and excellent food. Dishes are impeccably presented, as well as drinks. The only BUT is the price you have to... More

This very chill and beautiful restaurant has brought more dinning options to a city that lacked fine dinning for many years. We received exceptional service with excellent seafood options.

We had not heard of this restaurant at all but were referred to it by a young friend of my son who we ran into earlier that afternoon; from the outside we had some doubts but when we entered our impressions changed; this was by far the best restaurant we had been to in Havana. A splendid view of the... More

Incredible food with great views of the bay and river. Try the garbanzo frito, grillado de mar and the ropa vieja is to die!! Enjoy! And don't forget a mojito, the mojito de piña (pineapple) was gooooood!

Located directly across from the Malecon on the waterfront, the view vantage point was breath taking. As usual our server was wonderful and beautiful. Food is fantastic but not quite deserving of a 5. If you are looking for romantic ambiance, this is the place. Parking is easy and they do take reservations.

Enjoyed a great dinner as the sun was setting on the back deck. It was def one of the best meals we had during our time in Cuba. The butterfly lobster was filling and very tasteful. I highly recommend it. Then again it was all good, from the appetizers (try the octopus) to the frozen mojitos (out of this world).... More

we took a convertible taxi to this restaurant. this restaurant looks and feels like any other in Europe that is by the water. The menu items offered a break from the chicken with rice and beans staple we have been eating throughout the trip. I had the chocolate tart for dessert and it was wonderful. the dessert cost $5 which... More
