La Imprenta


Ratings and reviews


Food and ambience

Location and contact

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.

One of the best suppers we had in Old Havana. The prices are mid range, but the taste is fantastic. Very near the Museo del Chocolate. Everything on the menu looked good.

We were the only family eating dinner that evening. The service was not very good, it reminded me the state owned restaurant in China back in the 80s-90s. The food was OK, the sea food wasn't completely cooked/grilled. The lobster was still half cooked when...More

We saw the restaurant with a TripAdvisor recommendation from 2014. The inside looked promising and the restaurant was packed the night before so we said give it a try. With the starter the waitress served my girlfriend the wrong meal. For the main dish we...More

This is a state restaurant. They don’t do service. Staff hang around at the bar and it is difficult to grab someone’s attention. BUT when the food arrives then it is worth the effort. It was ten days ago now (Cuban internet is no good...More

Stumbled across this restaurant whilst walking around Havana old town. Lovely restaurant with lots of greenery, and resident musician. Food reasonably priced, we ordered the hanging kebabs which were really tasty! Good Mojitos! You had to pay to use the loo which is only downside....More
