We were recommended this particular restaurant by our hotel so after they made a reservation on our behalf we dined here the first evening. We ate outside on the terrace which is on the second floor of an old building not far from Plaza de Armas and Plaza de la Catedral. A musician played some lovely music on his acoustic... More

We decided for a nice restaurant with a nice view (you eat on a terrace) for our last night in Cuba. The food is good (not great), the staff and the location definitely make a difference. Average price:20/25 CUC per person. Definitely better this place than many others in L'Avana which have worse food and higher prices. Recommended!

We stopped here and had lunch. You will have to walk up a flight of steps and there is no handicap access. I had the lobster, which I very much enjoyed. They also had a band play in the dining area which was a lot of fun. Actually all the meals were good. I'd recommend, would eat here again.

Nice view but you must climb many steps. Service was fair. The seafood was fabulous. Did not have a Cuban feel, no music.. Food great yet the experience felt cold.

This was recommended by our hotel bellhop. It was the exact dining experience you hope to have at restaurant. It brought together all the wonderful things about Cuba. The ambience is fantastic. We ate on the roof of the restaurant overlooking Old Havana. It was beautiful. There was one guitarist providing live music throughout the evening that was positioned right... More

This restaurant is full of history. Old pictures from the city cover all the stairs going up to the roof terrace. We went at night but still the view was nice from the illuminated bay, nice breeze and the food was good. Menu is not too varied and plates are little expensive.

We stumbled across this restaurant by accident as we couldn't find a restaurant the hotel had reserved us (!) so after asking a security guard he pointed us in this direction. We managed to get a table on the balcony without reserving, but it was a busy evening so probably recommend doing so. The food came in a set menu... More

Recommended by tour guide. We sat on the roof overlooking the harbour entrance with one of the most amazing castle walls I have ever seen on the opposite side. The food was excellent, I had Lobster which was perfect. The restaurant has a foundation which takes street kids and trains them so that they can move on and get jobs,... More

The food here was average and was expensive for what it was. The service and family that run the place are great, but the food is not. If you are looking for somewhere in Old Habana that is convenient and has A/C this may be your place, but otherwise, look elsewhere.

I really did not find this place special. I thinks there should be others better for the same Price.
