One of the few restaurants in Cuba which did not increase their prices drastically, yet still continues to serve excellent quality. We a fixed, three-course meal and while it was served out at a high-speed, it was well prepared and tasted excellent. Perfect if you want a quick, cheap, delicious lunch and not waste too much time you could otherwise... More

We came here for a meal one night and the service wasn't unfriendly but it was painfully slow. Dont come here if you are pressed for time. The food was good and the venue is nicely set up. Window seats are great for people watching inside and out.

We attended this restaurant as part of our tour. The food, drinks and service was amazing. The ambiance of the restaurant as also quite lovely, a large open courtyard and cuban music helped give an overall awesome experience. It was quite hot inside due to not having an air conditioner, but I've yet to find a restaurant in Cuba that... More

The restaurant itself is interesting and different, laid out as it is in an old printing building. The menu was varied (although the whole tapas section wasn't available, unfortunately) and the food was presented beautifully. I had the veggie skewers and the portion could have been slightly bigger but what was there was good!

We visited here as part of a tour in a vintage car, for lunch. As part of a package we were not expecting too much, and although the choice of food offered was limited the quality was really enjoyable. The service was excellent and the building is a little reservoir of peace and cool from the hot sun. As I... More

Food was quite good. Reasonably priced. Fresh ingredients and some creativity in the kitchen There was love on the plate. We ordered the fish and lamb. Came back a second time and clearly there was a different chef in the kitchen - no love. Service was apathetic. I spoke basic Spanish and the other 3 in our party, English only... More

Made eight visits here for lunch and dinner and was always very satisfied by the service and food. The menu is a bit limited but all we ate was good and well presented. I especially liked the soups. The waiters were cheerful and helpful even identifying one of the herbs used as a garnish providing the name in Spanish and... More

We had a disappointing meal here. They did not have several dishes available, including the entire Tapas, which was a shame. The starters of olives and tuna salad were bland and did not get much for your money. I had the lobster and shrimp pasta which did not taste good. I also did not find any lobster in it! Although...

2 March 2016 arrived for lunch with tour group of 18 and were kept waiting at the entrance for several minutes while the guide chatted to a staff member. Maybe a price was being negotiated? As we were being seated (at three tables) waiters removed the cloth napkins and most of the cutlery from the tables. On requesting a menu... More
