We came here on a non-salsa night last week so we decided to dine here as a group of five. The dining room look amazing and loved the vintage environment look. Drinks were fantastic however food was pretty BAD & disappointing. Before dining here, I have never imagine food can be this crap. The complimentary bread was probably the most... More

I went here two Sundays in a row and thoroughly enjoyed it. There is a live band and it is full of people. It costs 3 cuc to get in and the drinks are cheap. Food seems inexpensive too. This is a great fun venue and if you are a salsa dancer, you will not want to miss this place.... More

We went with a dance class (Milagros de la Caridad - La Salsera) as the final event of dance classes, rumba experience and salsa dancing). It was so much fun. Great music, inexpensive drinks, people dancing and having a great time in an outdoor by-the-sea venue. Really close to Fabrica de Arte if you are there on a Friday or... More

Went on a Friday night - it was nearly deserted when we got there but more diners arrived after us. They were setting up the stage for live music starting at 10 pm, but we didn't stay that late. We had the pork creole, which was excellent, and the prices were very reasonable. Good service too. Location is nice -... More

We were not there on a dance night. We went for lunch one day and everyone's meal was very good. We sat on the back patio and had a great visit with some visitors from USA. The drinks and meals were very good, especially the lamb. We went back 2 days later for dinner and were not as fortunate. I... More

I was Not very impressed with this place! Very dirty, the smell was terrible, and difficult to have a drink. The location is great, but the atmosphere is not at the level you expect. May be I came the wrong day, may be I was not very lucky!

It is an earlier president mansion converted as a restaurant and outdoor dancing area. We were here twice on Saturday to dance salsa and did not use the restaurant. You pay 5 CUC as enterence fee to dance here. The outside area is big and by the sea. It was great. The dancing floor is made of concrete. It was... More

Went here as part of our Havana trip before heading to Tropicana club. Excellent service and food but you do have to pay for extra drinks and coffees. Only downside as usual in Cuba, only 2 ladies toilets so queues are long which can frustrate your guide when they need the bus to leave to arrive at Tropicana on time.... More

This restaurant is where our tour group stopped for lunch and what a beautiful restaurant it is! The food was excellent and a man played piano while we ate. Great ambiance. Beautiful colonial architecture. So glad we came here!
