“Lovely square, some nice restaurants.”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

It's a really nice square, if you are looking at the church on the right hand side there is a nice restaurant. It's a lot quieter in this square than the others, so good to have a bit of a relax.

“Relaxation”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

Nice spot for a bit of a rest away from the busy happenings of Havana - almost. Not much people around here, and depending on what time of the day you go, a nice breeze comes through as it is close to the water.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

Very beautifull Place. No traffic. Quiet. Extremely well kept or renovated buildings dating hundreds of years. The statue of San Francisco with the boy is a chef-d'oeuvre. Very good restaurants in the area. For really low prices, good meals and wonderfull atmosphere, try the small restaurant aside from Gardens of Orient, it has the same chef as the reknowned big restaurant.
