While viewing the sites we decided to have lunch at this restaurant the draw was a singer with exceptional talent. As we enjoyed our lunch she sang to to all the customers. The meal and service was excellent

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal here. Excellent quality and real value for money. Really liked the way that the staff didn't hang around the doors trying to entice you into the restaurant - they didn't need to anyway! Service was very good as well.

This has been my favourite dining experience in La Habana. The restaurant is very beautiful, and a great change from the touristy cafes of Habana Vieja. Food is original and not too expensive, beautifully served. Service is quite good as well. If you want to...More

Restaurant looked very nice from outside, with live music and quite busy with customers, so we went in. The waiter was very rude, he had no intrest at all to tell anything about the dishes on the menu even we tried to ask several times....More

Renovated on the ruins of what was, in the fourteenth century, the printing press of Havana. Today it is a place that reminds the workshops of this type. It is decorated with printing machines; the chairs have form of letters or numbers. We came in...More

A unique establishment in Old Havana, on the ruins of what was once La Habanera printing house in the 19th century. Fusion cuisine, with charcoal grilled meats specialties. An exquisite selection of Cuban and international cocktails and beverags. An unmissable food experience.
