I love everything about this place. The menu is perfect with a small selection which means the food it delicious and tasty. The service from the waiters was great and the musicians on the balcony made the atmosphere very romantic. The venue inside an old Cuban house makes this place extra special. 5 STARS!!!

A privately owned restaurant. It is upstairs in the old town giving a view over the busy street below. Very clean. Good food. reasonably priced and it had a live duo playing local music whilst we ate. A nice experience and would recommend it to other "Trippers". Not as good as the San Cristobal which is exceptionable but still very... More

This restaurant is situated virtually opposite the Hotel Conde Villanueva, in the Old Town. It is an elegant building which has been restored, and is beautiful inside and out. The major difference in this restaurant, is the age of the people serving and I imagine cooking. They are early 20's, to mid late 20's. The service that is offered, together... More

Having missed our original reservation due to flight delays I am so glad we made a point of visiting not one but twice. From the young musicians who are so passionate to the very personable owner, we had two fantastic evenings. The attentive service, although never intrusive is superb and he food truly unique quality in Havana I cannot recommend... More

Nestled in the heart of old Havana this Restuarant is a breath of fresh air. Upstairs in a very well restored beautiful 19th century building the Resturant preserves old Havana charm with modern day service. What hits you first is the exquisite music coming from the two musicians (always a violinist and a guitarist) playing from the balcony. They will... More

We ate inside in the air conditioned part but could still hear the music from the band. Very helpful and attentive staff.... More

The finest food we tasted in Cuba. The service was like a top restaurant in Europe and the atmosphere makes you feel as if you are dining in an authentic Cuban monumental residence.

My husband and I had just arrived in Havana and were trying to make our way through the heat and away from the people constantly accosting us to come to their restaurant. I recognized the sign outside from previously researching and noticed a very nice man outside that simply smiled when we approached. We had found our place! We had... More
