Description: A unique establishment in Old Havana, on the ruins of what was once La Habanera printing house in the 19th century. Fusion cuisine, with charcoal grilled meats specialties. An exquisite selection of Cuban and international cocktails and beverags. An unmissable food experience.

This restaurant is an old printing house and has a number of antiquated pieces of machinery as decorations. It also has intriguing newer printing inspired decorative touches and a pleasant open courtyard in the middle. The food we had was very nice, although there were a few things on the menu they didn't have.
The only improvement could have been some live music as we found ourselves srating wistfully at the windows of the Paladar next door where a guitarist and fiddle player were entertaining their diners.

I go there whenever I'm in Havana. The venue is quite original with many old printing presses and other equipment. The seats are in the shape of letters so it's visually very interesting and the restaurant area is open to a small garden area and Mark Escher style of steps leading nowhere. Food is good and inexpensive, served by fairly efficient staff. A great place for lunch or a drink.

The La Imprenta is a fomer printing works and the interior is amazing, to rival any restaurant in
major cities aroud the World. The food is excellent and at reasonable prices. The staff are very
welcoming and again excellent. I would go back every week if it was in London.

Food was excellent, I had the chicken curry which was like the curry my boyfriends nana cooks (she is Caribbean). The restaurant itself was really nicely decorated staff spoke limited English but they were still helpful and friendly, worth a visit and highly recommended.

Visited this restaurant 5 times at out last stay in Havana. The location is great, and the interior is good as well.

The prices are awesome, and the food is great as well (did only try meat courses). Cheap drinks, and magnificent Creme Caramel. Definitively worth a visit!
