We went to all the top trip advisor restaurants in Havana. This was the best one. The menu was creative, fresh and delivered all a foodie could want.

I think the biggest thing that trips up travelers in Havana is the importance of reservations at some places. We made an effort to have reservations every night at the restaurants we wanted to go to and we never had a problem. The food here...More

We went to this restaurant twice during our short stay in Havana--once for lunch and once for dessert and drinks. Both times did not disappoint. The food and service is excellent. The restaurant has a nice ambiance and the drinks are mixed really well. We...More

Hi I would like to know how to make reservations online. Their website is not user friendly in booking a reservation and it is in Spanish with no translation feature. Maybe someone has had better luck doing this, and can share some guidance...thanks a mil.

How long should we allow for dinner on a Saturday night? We have tickets for the Cabaret Tropicana and didn't know how much time to allow for dinner and cab to the Tropicana. Can anyone help? Thanks
