Neat music venue. We went with a large group to the downstairs jazz club which is intimate. The band was a trio: vocals, guitar and percussion playing traditional and more recent Cuban music. Good interaction with the audience. Fun night out !

I remembered this restaurant from my pervious times I was in Havana and was still with good memories. We have been served well, but all in all the combination of food and service was just average.

This was an excellent night out and one I'd highly recommend to those who are looking for something on the classy side without the the classy prices! Arrive soon after it opens to secure a table!

I know, bold statement, but I stand behind it. Cool atmosphere, wish we'd been able to stay for the nightly entertainment. Great service, and drinks so strong you realize why travel is important all over again.

The restaurant upstairs has a wonderful relaxing atmosphere, there’s indoor and patio dining. Service is good and food is very reasonably priced. The true gem is the downstairs bar/lounge that has incredible live bands. The entry fee is fair and minimal compared to other places....More
