“Great view and good food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2012

We went to the restaurant with a group. The views of the city were tremendous, and enjoyed the fact that the windows were open on the top floor of this building so the breezes made it nice. We had ther filet, which was very good..elevator to the top was a little tight

“Best point of the city for panoramic view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2012

Actually we had been in this restaurant to take panoramic pictures of Havana and ate sandwiches with a refreshement. Quality and quantitiy of the food is not less then 4 star but, I would strongly recommend this restaurant at least, to see Havana through bird's eyes.

Don't forget to ask permission to open the windows since they are nearly translucide due to the dirt.

“As luxurious a restaurant you can find in Havana!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2012

On the top floor (33) of the tallest building in Havana, Cuba, is La Torre (The Tower). The view is worth the price! The food is quite inexpensive for those from the US. Apps/soup $4-10, Salad maybe $7, and main courses $15. Dessert $5. Prices in CUC's, but not much different than US dollars. The quality of the food exceeds that of similar items served in other restaurants throughout the island.
Servers were excellent.
If you somehow find yourself in Havana, ask the front desk at your hotel to get you a reservation!!

“Go for the views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2012

We went for lunch as part of our 2 day tour of Havana and I have to say the food we got was pretty poor but I think it was because we were part of a group as the food normal customers were getting looked great. I would recommend visiting just for the views which are amazing(see photos).
