Great views. Good food. Good service. Realistic prices. The risotto with shellfish was delicious and the snapper was the best of the trip.

This is a stunning place with great service. The food does not live up to the expectations though. A bit greasy. However - I still highly recommend a visit.

Nice restaurant in el Vedado neighborhood. Good food and perfect service. Good mojitos (not the best). Not cheap. Nevertheless, not so expensive. Lovely view. It is important to ask for a table outside.

I will recommend to be at Cafe Laurent at 7:00 pm so at least you have 2:30 hours to eat and then walk to the Parisien

Description
Brand new restaurant , opened in February 2011. We were one of it's first customers. A 'Palador 'style restaurant located in a penthouse apartment of an of classic 1950's building; with magnificent views over the city and of the ocean. interior decor is modern1950's cool, creative, and artfully appointed. the food was excellent!!! One could could compare easily to a fine restaurant in Paris, NY or London. staff are young and attentive and gave great service.
