Contrary to recent reviews I had a very nice experience at this restaurant. We popped in without knowing anything about the place for a late lunch. I had langoustine with some very tasty accompaniments. Perhaps a bit overcooked as another reviewer mentioned but still quite good. My husband had a simple chicken salad which was apparently underwhelming. I didn't taste... More

Food wasn't very good. All the fish, lobster were over cooked and the rest were cold. Service was ok......

The service was terrible, it took two attempts to get a drink from two different waiters who had no interest at all. The food took a very long time to come out & when it did it was not worth the wait, the cream of veg soup tasted of the tinned Heinz variety... The beans and chorizo however was good.... More

Havana restaurants seem to be either very pricey or very basic. This one is both reasonable and has amazing food. Can't recommend highly enough ..

A really good restaurant in an amazing building. The food is excellent and the portions are royal (if you are really hungry take the pasta, it's a mountain :-)). I would definitely recommend this place if you are looking for a good meal in Havana.

Looks pretty and it is a lovely space but the staff were really unfriendly and the food was bad. Prawns smelt very odd and no one ate them and almost everything was incorrect that we ordered. Just keep walking

A very modern stylish restaurant - a converted printing works renovated in a very contemporary way around an old courtyard. We felt this would be pretty cool in London or New York. Yet there was the usual live Cuban music to make you know you are in Havana. Service at Caribbean speed, nice food when it came, plenty of cold... More

It was only our first night in Havana and the building has been nicely fitted out, and was fairly busy so from the street it appears to have a nice ambience. We went inside. I ordered fish and my husband pork, they were slow to come out and when they arrived the dishes looked very bland, food was grey in... More

This is one of the most attractive restaurants we visited during our week in Cuba, located inside a former printing press. We had no problem getting a table on a Friday at 1:00; it wasn't crowded and all of the guests were tourists. The menu had a lot more variety than the usual Havana restaurant, and the food was decent,... More

This restaurant has kerb-side appeal. We were drawn in by the open top and by the amount of diners already inside (that's got to be a good sign, surely)? The flies were drawn in also. They absolutely loved whatever chef was cooking up and in between the chef cooking up his delicacies, they came and had a nibble on me... More
