Great restaurant. The view from the table in the deck is beautiful, but you have to arrive early. The banana soup is excellent! The restaurant is a little expensive but it worth.

Amazing food, but too full to try dessert. Specialty drinks were fabulous and the view from the balcony of downtown is awesome.

Ate there 2x. Food was great but small portions. Cuban banana soup was outstanding. Excellent view of canal. Wind a big problem eating on the balcony whether lunch or dinner. My wife's full wine glass was blown over on her during dinner!!!

They have the best cocktails on the island and during happy hours they are half price. The view is fantastic and by night this is awesome. Thank you all for the great service we receive every time we visit them.
