This is on the top floor of an apartment building, get a table outside and you can see most of Havana and two views of the gulf. The food was outstanding, the service excellent, and the price less than 20 CUC per person with wine. The menu had several unique dishes (like pork lasagna without noodles and a wonderful lamb...

Nice upper restaurant in a converted apartment. This is my second trip there and had fish both times, which is really their specialty. Nicely cooked and presented. Had a gazpacho appetizer which was very refreshing for a warm July evening. The open sides of the restaurant provided a nice breeze to keep the place cool. Food came in a decent... More

Large portions as everywhere else. Lovely environment on the 6th floor and facing the sea. Great Breeze. Ordered the baked chicken, lamb stew and grilled vegetable with a side of beans. The lamb was a large helping and did get a bit boring after a while. The chicken was good. The grilled vegetables and beans were the best. Desert of... More

Our tour group (21 people) enjoyed a variety of food (some of us were vegetarians). The chef was very accommodating. Delicious red snapper, fresh veggies, very tasty mojitos, beer, and a luscious ice cream dessert. It is an open air restaurant, located on the top floor. Lovely views of Havana.

This restaurant was recommended by a friend and it did not disappoint. The food and drinks were excellent. We hadn't appreciated how expensive Havana was as a city and hadn't brought enough cash with us (they don't take card) so we couldn't go all out with three courses each but what we did eat was delicious. Booking essential.

Probably my second favorite meal came at this restaurant located about four or five stories up in the Vedado section of Havana near Hotel Nacional. Meal consisted of white fish with a verde sauce made of shrimp and clams. The restaurant has limited seating so arrive early and stay late for a great sunset.

Went to many different restaurants while in cuba by far this was my favorite. walking distance from my hotel with amazing views. The food was cooked to perfection with nice presentation. No complains about the service even though it was full the girls were on top of everything. Definitely will go back when in cuba.

This restaurant is a must visit if you are in Havana! Everything was delicious but the civiche was my favorite. And the desert! We met Chef Victor and had a chance to talk to him for a few minutes as well. We will definitely be back.

This was close to our casa and we went there twice for a late afternoon lunch. Superb location and view from top terrace!! Everybody loved the food too, probably the best during our visit. Service was OK, excellent as cuban standard but average as european. A bit pricey as 10% service fee added to bill later so be careful. But... More
