Fun urban upcycled decor. Love the indoor seating area, but the terrace is even better. Great drinks, interesting food and lovely service

this is an unusual place in Havana, I liked the food, and the way they serve it, cocktails are strong, price ok, but they need to be kind to people (they are not rude, just not kind at all! not a single smile from people...working there)More

We came here for lunch one afternoon and we just loved it! We were a large group of 8 adults and the staff was super friendly and made space for us on the rooftop so that we could be in the shade. All I have...to say is after spending a few days in a resort in Varadero, it felt great to finally have some delicious drinks!!! The drinks are cheap, strong and taste SO good. What more could you ask for?! The food was also cheap, fresh and delicious! It really is a great place to go hang out with a group of people you like, eat, drink and get a little drunk under the hot Havana sun! LOVED this place so much and we would definitely go back! I recommend the daiquiris, mojitos and the chicken with pineapple!More

Got really bad food poison after having dinner here. Lost a total of 4 days due to this. Also lost 3-4kg on the other hand which is not so bad.

Amazing restaurance with very tasty, quality and special food with nice price. The best place to the sitting is on terrace, you will enjoy it. They have very good cocktails too and play good music. Restaurante is in hipster style. We have been in restaurante...more times.More

We ended up eating here twice during our Havana stay. Food and drinks were excellent and the prices were some of the best we found in Cuba. Excellent lobster for 10 CUC!

We only came here for a drink, but lingered for a while when we saw the rooftop. We sat at the bar, ordered their Mojito, which is supposedly a favorite among locals and it did not disappoint. I don't think Mojitos will ever be my...go-to but this one was great. We enjoyed the warm "winter" air and we made friends with the bartender and swapped some stories and shots. The saddle seats for bar stools is a little awkward but thematically appropriate. If we end up in Habana again we're definitely coming back here!More

Do not bother going to more expensive places. This is cheap, and the food is the best I've had in Cuba. We were lucky to get there at a time when there was no queue outside. But there was a long one as we left....Understandably. The meal was the best I've had in Cuba. The staff is entirely male and can have a bit of an attitude if you tell them something is wrong. We ordered virgin Pina Coladas which tasted like alcohol. The barmaid got testy when we returned them and insisted they contained no alcohol before explaining that all pina coladas are made with liquor of coco but the only alcohol is the rum. Not so. liquor=alcohol and we've had plenty of pina colodas that were not made with liquor of coco.More

We liked the look of this bar/restaurant and decided to pop in. We ordered a couple of pina coladas and some nachos and both were great. The drinks were particularly boozy (but in a good way), and very reasonably priced at $2.75 CUC. We ordered...a second before moving on slightly tipsy! We ended up returning on another occasion for lunch and this was fresh, simple, yet tasty. We really liked the atmosphere and the prices were good for the quality of food and drink.More

Good quality food. Most other places are bland but this place does it right. They take reservations! They have lobster but it’s not on the menu.
