Beautiful restaurant in a building you would never expect. Fine dining in Havana. Make sure to stop upstairs at the bar for a better view of the city.

Cuba is one of my favourite places but it is not famous for its cuisine. This place however, was the PERFECT way to end our holiday. Beautiful setting, very unique with delicious, beautifully presented food and GREAT cocktails.

One of the best places to eat in al of Havana. The views, the food, the drinks are all incredible. Be sure to go to the roof top bar before dinner, its a great experience. Try the succulent pork for sure.
