We stopped here with our private, small AirBnB tour group and would highly recommend it. The food, service, and view were all absolutely amazing! One of the best meals we had in Cuba with a view that can’t be beat. Excellent atmosphere.

Sorry, I don't know if they have an email address. Lunch didn't seem very busy but I've heard you need to book if you are after a 'sunset meal' Phone 52238969.
