We booked for an early supper before heading out to the Tropicana Show and then decided the starters looked so good that we would have 2 each and forget everything else. They were exceptional and the best we had in Havana. Friendly service and a comfortable table outside on the balcony.

Situated in what at first appears to be a run down building, this roof terrace restaurant is a truly great place to eat. The building houses an eclectic mix of bars, art galleries and restaurants. A former meeting place for the Hispanic community in Havana, La Terraza is accessible by lift. Décor and ambiance would rival any fine dining establishment,... More

Sat outside and could hear all the music and buzz of city below us. Grilled shrimp, cold drinks, decent service. Expensive by Havana standards, but was good spot, everyone liked it.

This place was brilliant on all counts!! Service like a 3 star... Cannot remember our servers name but he said his previous employment was on a cruise ship. Food was all grills ... And if you sit on the terrace then it is in front of you. Food was nothing short of spectacular... With over sized portions!

Food was excellent, good menu choice and lovely ambiance. Scary lady outside the toilets demanding money, which we hadn't realised was common place in Cuba! Make sure you have several coins handy

It was raining when we were here, but that didn't stop us from thoroughly enjoying ourselves. We were able to visit the local daycare, had a wonderful lunch, went to the local artist's workshop, and bought several hand-made souvenirs. Was offered coffee after lunch - don't miss that.....we preferred the iced version. Yummm.....

Restaurant is pricy. Service mediocre. It took an hour to get the ordered food to be served. Fish was served partially cooked and when I asked to have it grilled some more was again reserved partially cooked. Got no apologies for this.

We were booked here by our tour operator and taken by our guide who intervened to get us seated on the terrace rather than the less atmospheric indoor area that they initially showed us to.. Our set meal was very nice with fresh bread, dipping oil, and seafood skewers. Shame there was only ice cream for dessert. Service was very... More

La Terraza is located behind the Parque Central Hotel near the old city. Don't be put off by the unimpressive entrance or the very slow elevator to get to the top floor. The grill chef is a master. The grilled chicken as well as the grilled swordfish were fantastic. The service was good as were the views from the terrace.... More

Description
Havana Gourmet restaurants offer various dining and cultural one of the main streets of Havana options. In our building resides the American club, and our restaurant has several shields to confirm their presence. The building is home par excellence of an Asturian community of 35,000 members, but also distinguished by cultivating the art of cooking with restaurants of different nature: Havana Gourmet, La Xana and La Terraza, specializing in Cuban fusion food, Italian and grilled respectively. Rice, lasagna and fresh pasta, havana assortment, the slices of lamb with mustard and honey, leg of lamb chops, the malangon shrimp and octopus carpaccio and fish are some of the recommendations often held for the authenticity of the recipes and spectacular preparation, but customers can find in letters a range of proposals.
