I ordered grilled fish which the menu promised would have a squeeze of lime and fresh coriander (cilantro). It came out over-cooked in oil, and had what I think was fish-paste smeared all over it. One mouth full gave threatened to give me stomach cramps. Expensive and absolutely revolting. I left my meal and went elsewhere. Man on front door... More

Enjoyed the atmosphere in this terrace restaurant overlooking the Jesus Statue and El Malecon. Had a fish dish with very tasty lobster. Teenagers had the shredded beef which they both enjoyed. In a city where you can not use your card in many places if running short of cash this is very welcome. Meal for 4 cost 96 CUCs with... More

The restaurant is located on de 1st and 2nd floor. Ask for a table on the terrace. Atmosphere is perfect. Food is the best in town

As with most Cuban food, everything was badly overcooked. The Daiquiris were good, the fish was poor and the variation in portions from plate to plate among our large group was aggravating. Some had generous portions, others had tapas. Great views in good weather otherwise.

No bread, just hard to eat crackers, slow and poorly informed service, not well cleaned and not well done lobster with urine smell/taste. Expensive, great view.

This small restaurant has a very nice atmosphere and the terrace overlooks the hills and the bay. The waiters are very nice. On the other hand, the food is not good. The food is very expensive and the portions aren't that big. They have a small shrimp dish that costs more than normal. There is also a very tall staircase... More

Ate there with another couple and 2 guides and a driver. Food was good with ample portions. Service was very good. Drinks were good and there was a very nice keyboard player who set the mood for an enjoyable evening.

Restaurant in old Havana with value / negative price. poor food served on a very crowded terrace with guitarist totally out of tune. Beware of the 10% service that raises the total bill over the acceptable.
