This place is very inviting. The food is amazing, They have a terrace where you can enjoy Old Havana. I strongly recommend you try the "michelada beer" it is to die for.

4th trip to Havana and we finally found this gem. Food was great and cocktails were fantastic as well. Great atmosphere and reasonably priced. Make sure you find your way here while visiting Havana.

They serve amazing cocktails, must try! Food is good for Cuba, there are not so much places in Cuba where you can eat very well so this place is really worth to visit if you want to have a decent meal.

Popular bar in Vieja, on O’Reilly. Good range of drinks. Appears a little more expensive than other bars, but quantities are more. Food is good, although service can be slow when busy. If you want 5o eat, I’d recommend booking. Top floor terrace is best.

The restaurant is not in any way wheelchair accessible. And they don’t take US dollars. You can change this currency at any Cadeca. There’s one in Obispo street 3 mins away from the restaurant.

На третьем этаже, на террасе (а только там и стоит бронировать столик) точно можно курить. Yes, on open terrace - 100%.
