“One of the best in Havana!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

I have been there a couple of times, and I have to say that the food is great, the service and attention is top notch, and what can you say about the location, location, location??!!! It is a fantastic, and super eclectic mix of iconic art, spanning religious genres, in a seemingly jumbled up mix, that really actually works, and creates a wonderful feel. A great blend of comidas crillollas with a few nouveau ideas thrown in! The owner is hands on, and an absolute sweetheart!

“So romantic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

We came here twice in our recent trip to cuba. The service was very attentive and we received free rum and cigars at the end of the meal. The oxtail was mouthwatering and the Crete caramel one of the best I have tasted in cuba. Stay away from the steak you can get better elsewhere.

“An excellent meal in a lovely quirky restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

The service was attentive and friendly and all the food was excellent. The maitre d' was keen to show us round the restaurant. They are obviously proud of what they have and want everyone to love it as much as they do.

“so far the best in havana.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2014

what a nice place to enjoy good food and with friends is the best. The staff are very friendly.The inside is very beautiful like a museum..I live in Havana and i have visit many restaurants. So far this is the best! The steaks is very good, the oxtail, rope vieja and off couse seafood. if you book ask to be seated in one of the rooms. its really beautiful inside. outside (hall) is nice too but i prefer inside :).
