“Beautiful place and location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2014

Besides, the history of the place is very appealing. We didn´t eat, though, we just went in to know the place. Anyways, food in Cuba is not that great, so......

“Good food, spectacular view”

This restaurant is located right on the beach and the food is very good.There is a replica of the old car used by Al Capone in front of the hotel. Very well kept gardens surround the place.

“Not worth it”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

The food is average. Have had the same meal at a different restaurant which tasted much better and was half the price.
The prices are near outrageous.
Cash only.
I would only recommend going if you want to say "been there, done that".
