This restaurant is just perfect. We watched the sunset over the valley while enjoying a perfect Cuban diner. This restaurant doesn't only offer a variated cuban menu; it also has the best view over the valley. You order whatever you want: lamb, chicken, fish, beef,......More

I’m Cuban and this food was not good at all. They didn’t have water and they didn’t have dessert. expensive with really small portions of food. Like I say is good to take pictures of the beautiful view that’s all.

This hidden gem is definitely worth a visit. You will sit like on a friend's house balcony (there are only a few tables) and overlook the whole valley - amazing sunset! Food is delicious and much - the usual Cuban options: pork, chicken, or fish,...More

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.
