Very nice and fresh seafood served here. They even serve sashimi. The cevice was excellent and we has to reorder it again. The view is ok but not the best you can have at Havanna as it is mostly fishing boats anchored around. Attentive service

Not sure what all the hype was about the best sushi in Cuba....our food was mediocre with sushi pre-made out of the fridge and fish of the day being way too dry and sliced too thin. Calamari was stringy and there are way better places...More

Sushi and sashimi in havana, fresh from the sea. Dont look for fine wines: beer will do. All dishes are fresh and simple. Big ceviche plate! Nice shrimp. Only proble: no written menu card. Expensive by Cuban standards, nice pricing compared to U.S or Europe....More
