we had lunch here in between our classic car ride and walking tour of Havana, meal was okay but limited menu, but the staff were very friendly and tried with their limited english to engage with you. Could do with some more light in the room upstairs.

The food is pretty good, but there are better restaurants (in terms of both food and character) in Old Havana for the same price. Pop music videos shown on a TV in the corner and a hodgepodge rustic theme made the place feel a bit like a Cuban Applebees.

We had a really tasty and varied menu but the best bit was the service, Johnny and Palma were really friendly, efficient,professional and intelligent." Nao" means no in Portuguese but we'd definitely give it a big "Yes".

We popped into this restaurant for a drink and dessert. The cocktails were delicious and the desserts we had were very tasty too. I particularly liked the atmosphere of this restaurant. It was quirky, intimate and relaxing. I would definitely recommend and return.
