Little choice for vegetarians. My husband had stuffed potatoes and a tablespoon of cabbage. Did not feel well afterwards. I could only find one thing on the menu - a vegetable kabob, which I enjoyed. The waiter did not make eye contact and we had multiple waiters.

visited around 5pm, - very quiet with only a few customers. Service indifferent. Wife had lobster - tough/chewey. Asked for bill and was ignored

It is the best place to eat in Havana! Don't even think to go to other places, even Hotel National have worst kitchen. Excellent location, prices and food. Just at our second dining mr Julio forgot about half of our order as he was busy making good impression at the entrance.

Gave us a poor table in the back - nowhere near the music. Seafood pasta - a portion big enough for 4 - so most of it left - and not really hot.

Great location and good physical setup. Service was poor, perhaps the worst we experienced in Havana. Food was just OK - neither great nor bad. Average at best. Surly wait staff. Would suggest maybe stopping by for a drink....

We ate at La Imprenta several times because of its central location, wide ranging menu and friendly atmosphere. It is a beautiful place, a large, former printing workshop. Now it has a big central patio which brings in lots of light. Among a party of eight, including vegetarians and gluten free diets, everyone had a tasty meal. Appetizers are small... More

The restaurant was busy when we visited and we had to queue for a short while. The restaurant was nicely set out and decorated. However, the derelict upstairs floor allowing us to see the stars was a bit odd! We ordered tapas dishes to start - they were ok. We both ordered the lobster and that was excellent. Definitely worth... More

Obviously this was rated fairly highly so we wanted to try it out as food in cuba is generally poor. We waited a long time for service (normal in cuba) and then drinks and order etc and they forgot to bring the starter we ordered to share and so when our mains arrived we just carried on eating them as...

The restaurant is in the Old Town in an old printing factory which has cleverly renovated in a modern style. We went their for dinner and really enjoyed ourselves. The ambiance was lively helped by an excellent keyboard player who managed to achieve the skill of being entertaining whilst unintrusive at the same time. The food was excellent. My wife... More
