Very nice bar/restaurant with good rooftop. Great to have a cocktail! The exchange rate they use however is very bad (15% less than usual at other places).

It's a nice trendy place with nice cocktails. I don't recommend it for lunch/dinner as it's too expensive and the service is slow and nonchalant.

Little rooftop gem of a bar! We stumbled across this by accident whilst looking for other bars - that were closed! Great drinks, little first floor balcony’s and we love a rooftop bar, great atmosphere and attentive service.

Nice roof top dining. Food was excellent and there was variety on the menu while other restaurants in town are having difficulty sourcing food. There was no local beer but imports were available. Cocktails were good. Lobster Tacos were excellent. Staff was attentive and spoke...excellent English, but I enjoyed the roof top ambiance the most.More

Food was quite good in fact, but impossible to get a table on the rooftop terrace, and the service treats you like you should be grateful that they lower themselves to serve you - after an (obligatory) generous tip, no thank you, not even a...good bye... would I go there again? probably, after having given all other Restaurants in Havana a try...More

Not obvious to find. Love the terrace. Bartenders prepare delicious cocktails. Food is very good: Cuban with a twist. Not cheap

This is a small restaurant not visible from the road. Go through the door and up the stairs. The roof terrace is secluded and a nice place to eat on a warm evening. Service was good. The food was well cooked and good value. Highly...recommend, but suggest you book as it filled up very quickly.More

This was one of the restaurants recommended or featured in the on-board air transat magazine . We could not get in the first night we tried as it was fully booked Food was excellent although the terrace was smaller than some other terrace restaurants ,there...were some really nice innovative items on the menu. The ceviche was actually in a small mound ,moist not runny & delicious we also had small croquettes with squid and squid ink in the centre they were deliciousMore

We came for drinks one night and sat on the roof terrace. We also returned for dinner and sat on the balcony. The balcony seating is more intimate as the roof is more of a buzzing bar scene. We didn't order cocktails and our server...was quite dismissive after that. We ordered ceviche to start and then the grilled chicken and a salad. We specified starter then main but they all came at once. It ended up being too much and the chicken was slightly undercooked. We took away the salad and were charged for doing so. So the place is cool but the service and food is not so great....More

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