Wow. We went here on our last night in Havana and it was one of the best meals we had in Cuba. We ate in upstairs restaurant. Good attentive service though they're keen on offering extras - bread, water etc - but not too pushy. Outside area is smoking though tables are not too close together and the view over... More

Great views of the malecon from this restaurant. We really enjoyed the food and the service was exceptional. It was a little on the pricey side but was worth it.

We have visited both the street level restaurant as well the 2nd floor. Both are good, with the 2nd floor being more "upscale" in quality, services and prices. Both are recommended, street level clearly the most value for money. However, sunset on the terrace overlooking the Malecon is priceless - reservations for the terrace recommend. Overall: strongly recommended if you... More

I spent around 40cuc which remember is around an entire months salary for a cuban so my expectations were very high . Firstly ambience . Very... More

We ate here twice during our stay in Havana and both times had a pleasant meal. The food is pretty good (which is MUCH better then the other restaurants we tried in the same area along The Malecon), service friendly, and pricing pretty ok. I wouldn't trek across Havana to get here but it's a solid choice for a nice... More

Our tour guide arranged an early dinner for 12 of us after 2 hours of waiting our luggages at the Airport which the plane arrived around Noon. The host took us to the 3rd floor with a long table. The hostess recommend that she fixed some appetizers for all of us to share and then we ordered our own entrees.... More

If (when?!) you tire of the same old food around Obispo, seek this place out. Lovely location on the Malecon, only a short walk from the centre along the seafront. Two restaurants, lower floor more relaxed serving international food (i.e. pizza and pasta) and fish, upper a bit more bistro-esque with meats and seafood. Ate in both, and both were... More

Food, service and ambience was great (ok, room did have a "wedding reception" feel to it) but when the bill came and my husband asked if the tip was included, our waiter told him no - while we are good tippers & would have left him more than what the bill said, too bad it has to be put out...

Excellent lunch. Very good food. Nicely presented and tasty. We were seated on the balcony but on warm days seating inside with AC is available. Service was friendly and attentive. Recommend fish or seafood.
