Eat outside on veranda overlooking the river. We arrived at 6:00 for our reservation and there was only 1 table occupied! Thought we made a mistake but by 7:00 it was completely full. Menu is on a blackboard that is set on the floor in front of your table. It was hard to read and hard to understand our server... More

We have gone there many times and the restaurant is beautiful and in a unique location. Unfortunately, after a few reports from friends leaving in Havana that the bills are always inflated and... surprise!!! We got a bill inflated by 25% with many drinks and dished we had not ordered. So, I would suggest you do not but... if you... More

This good rated place has an absolute bad service. The ordered glass of wine get lost or arrived when the dinner was finished. The food is ok. The view from the terrace fantastic. But its highly over priced. Can recommend a dozen of restaurants which are really top!!!

we arrived without a reservation but they found a small table for the two of us. The food was wonderful and the service first rate. There were many large groups there so a reservation is probably a good idea. It was a long walk from out hotel so we asked for a taxi on the return trip. Pronto, there was... More

First of all, this is a fancy restaurant, you will get real cuban food and a great scenery since this has a great view of the river and the ocean but the architecture is modern, not that that is a problem... The moro was the best we tried in our week in cuba and the mojitos... oh man the mojito... More

The interior is smartly decorated but only 2 tables are located inside, it's all about the patio. The patio overlooks the sea near the mouth of the Almendares River across from the Torreón de la Chorrera. The wine list isn't cheap but you can find wines in the $25 to $35 range from Italy, France and Spain as well as... More

My girlfriend and I traveled to Cuba after Christmas 2016. The food and atmosphere were excellent. Great view of the water from the tables on the deck. We especially enjoyed the jamon serrano appetizer and the lobster main course. Make sure you have a reservation though.

We ended our trip to Cuba with lunch at this ultra hip restaurant (thanks to our equally hip tour guide Osmel Darlington) on the water overlooking where the Almendares River meets the sea. What a spot! We sat outside on the deck with white canvas awnings. So cool! The food, especially the fresh seafood, was absolutely delicious and plated in... More

We went with fifteen other people and the staff was very accommodating. We did make advanced reservations and you really need to. It's not a huge restaurant. The food was amazing! I got the pasta with seafood which was as loaded with lobster and shrimp. My husband got the lamb and he devoured it. With drinks,we spent around $40, with... More

It is a lovely spot and excellent seafood. We arrived just before it was dark and the place was full of very noisy tour groups. We should have comeback later say 8pm.

Al entrar a este restaurante, el visitante es sorprendido por la elegancia, buen gusto y las mas nuevas tendencias en la presentacion de los platos y el servicio. El primer atractivo del lugar, amen de la cocina, es el paisaje privilegiado con una vista unica de la desembocadura del Rio Almendares y el Torreon de la Chorrera. La decoracion, concepto y distribucion de los muebles y hasta el mismo ejercicio del arte culinario parecen puestos en funcion de lograr una experiencia exclusiva entre el rio y el mar.
