We joined two other couples for an evening at Le Chansonnier, which isn't the easiest restaurant to find. It is located in a residential area; a converted home. On display at the restaurant is art by a local Cuban artist, making it a dining experience to stimulate all the senses! We had an assortment of dishes within our group. The... More

The conversion of this old house is really lovely. The food was good - not the best we had in Havana but good enough to recommend a visit. We stayed in Vedado and it was nice to walk here. Went back a second time to have cocktails on the porceh. Nice.

When we walked into this restaurant we could hardly believe our eyes. Elegant, beautiful, classic. We were meeting another couple who hadn't shown yet, so we ordered some sparkling water while we waited. What a surprise to see Pellegrino! We waited some more and decided to order some wine. A small wine list, but the Chilean Cabernet was delicious. Our... More

Traveled as a group of 11 and we loved this place so much we went twice during our stay! The home is beautiful. The art is lovely. The bathrooms are clean and really funky - in a very cool way. Our servers - Rose Marie and Octuvia - were incredible and handled our large group with smoothly. The food was... More

This is an extremely attractive restaurant with excellent food and outstanding service at very reasonable prices. By far the best dining experience we had while in Havana.

4 years have passed since my last visit and it didn't disappoint. If anything they've up their game on every aspect.....food, service, ambiance. It's as good as any fine dining experience in the US

Nestled in a residential area you'd be forgiven for walking past this repurposed villa. Inside, the space with its traditionally tiled floors and high ceilings is beautifully decorated deliberately to showcase the pieces of art on display including a unique copper piece of 'sculpture' functioning as the gateway to the washrooms. The menu was interesting and probably classed as 'international'... More

If you want fine dining in wonderful surroundings and excellent service, you must come here. The menu is diverse and standards high but the service is also incredibly friendly and relaxing. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the whole experience. It took some finding though as there is no signage....we got lost but really glad we persevered!

THE OWNER HECTOR and his crew are extraordinaries, a really swanky glamour restaurant, a minimalist decoration with a very good taste of art...the real place to hang out in vedado late at night.

Poetry in concept, flame in the heart, the stone shell can not contain the light of our spaces. Come to a restaurant to walk with bare feet and face in the clouds. Designed, served, cooked, passionate.
