It Is rather a mansion near the sea which nowadays hosts a restaurant and bar.It is permitted to go inside to take photos.You can also climb to the roof to take panoramic photos of the area.For those who like the architectural style either way the visit won't take long!

This former mansion is now a restaurant with a roof top bar. It is located right beside Jagua Hotel. We went to tour the building and were charged an entrance fee of $2/person which includes a drink at the roof top bar ($4 value how can you beat that!!!). The moorish detail, the grand marble staircase and the spiral staircase... More

Lovely place but were disappointed with the food which was bland and tasteless, the prices were expensive and did not include the side dishes such as rice and salad. service was slow and the waiter was very nonchalant! Wouldn't bother to go back.

This really is a beautiful building that is worth the effort to find and have a drink or a meal. We were offered the set menu but declined and just had a main course and a couple of bottles of wine ( Chilean, and we were on holiday!). To be fair the food was good, and we really enjoyed our... More

This restaurant is in an early 1900's mansion. Although the food is not outstanding the atmosphere is great. The mansion is done in the Middle Eastern style and closely resembles mansions I have been to in the ME. The service was good. If nothing else be sure to sto in for at least a drink..

Had dinner in this beautiful Moorish designed building, which was next to our hotel. As stated in the title, the grilled lobster was delicious and very large, maybe the biggest Caribbean lobster I've ever had. The service and rest of the food was very average and forgettable. As are most places in Cuba, the prices are reasonable.

Climb on the top of the tower for the most amazing cocktail location. The views are amazing, the drinks good as is the live music.

This very old mansion is a delight to both have dinner in and explore for desert. I had the lobster [they brought one and one half] and it was wonderful.
