The building is of course breathtaking and we sat in what feels like a Moorish palace to eat which in itself was an experience. The staff were helpful and pleasant. The food was fairly standard by Cuban standards. We mainly went because they advertised proper potato chips on their menu and as you can't really get them anywhere, we decided... More

The palace itself is beautiful and looks like a building right out of Morocco. The woodwork is carved in intricate patterns that look amazing. My husband and I had fish for dinner and it was delicious, moist and flaky. A meal here is a special treat.

The drinks here are good, but the view from the rooftop patio is the reason to go. You can see across Cienfuegos. In the evenings they have live music and the table service is good, if a bit slow. Like I said, the views are the reason to go. The architecture is the other reason. A mishmash of styles, it... More

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...

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..
