We dined here the night we got into Havana. The service was pretty poor but the food was okay and they were able to get us in without a reservation or wait for a table. I wish I could say the same for the food, which took forever to arrive and was pretty tasteless.

I went with my husband and my niece. Since we got there the two waiters that came to our table were speechless all the time. We order 3 different meals. The meat was warm, but the side’s dishes rice and mashed malanga were completely cold. When the bill came, I was charge for bread, that didn’t arrive and for an... More

I had a pork dish and husband ate a nice grilled chicken. Both with beans and rice. Perhaps not my favorite place but quite good.

The restaurant is set in a beautiful old print house building. We got top restaurant quality presentation and service and it was the best food we had in Havana

beautiful courtyard, but the waiters don't seem intersted in their customers. Food just acceptable. Prices are high for what it offers

So me and my boyfriend had lunch here. If you compare our dishes mine was quite small whereas my boyfriends dish was much larger. The service needs a lot of work. Firstly the waiter took the wrong order for my boyfriend so instead of bringing him spaghetti with lobster he just brought a plate of spaghetti. We did point that... More

Located in what was once a newspaper printing works, La Imprinta wouldn't look out of place in one of the trendier parts of East London, bar the huge tropical plants growing in the open terrace at the back. The quality of the food also stands up very well, although be prepared for a bit of a wait for it, and... More

Big airy restaurant and very pleasant atmosphere but food quality quite inadequate. There are many other great restaurants in the area. Would not recommend.

While walking along Ciudad Vieja, Havana, Cuba, my wife and I encountered this restaurant, which had a nice open courtyard inside with dining tables around it. We sat down close to the entrance on chairs with shapes of letters used at a printing press (there the name of the restaurant). I ordered pasta with seafood and my wife ordered the... More
