My first visit was back on January 2014 and I´ve visiting this place since then in a monthly basis.
Food is delicious, staff is very friendly and Charles, the owner, is a showman that will make your visit the special occasion to remember. Sergio, a member of the staff, will give you a very good explanation about the history of the neighborhood.

This paladar or entrepreneurial restaurant is located in an extremely poor neighborhood, but is beautifully decorated, well managed and served excellent food. The staff was smiling, efficient and excellent.

Their pizza is one of the best I have ever eaten. Their pasta was delicious.

I would return in a minute.

Popular with tours, this hide away restaurant offers good basic dining. We arrived before the coach masses and had appetisers, mains and deserts with a glass of wine. A 10% service charge was added to the bill. Quantity and quality of food was good and service very attentive. Place filled up very quickly.

Would recommend to friends and family if in Havana....

If you're someone who can't go a few days without pizza, La California has really delicious fresh pizza, with some Cuban flavors filling out the menu. It's atmosphere was kinda weird though, we sat inside which felt entirely separate and had music videos playing loudly during our meal. Even on a hot evening, I would recommend sitting outside.

Generally, one does not go to Cuba for the food !! This restaurant was recommended by our casa which was 10 mins walk away & we found this restaurant exceptional & one of the best we experienced in 2 wks travelling around Cuba.
I had fish which was excellent followed by a coconut homemade icecream - all great. Cocktails were good & we found the service attentive.
Its worth going just to see the décor which is very interesting.
