This restaurant is in the heart of Old Havana. It is elegant and beautifully decorated. The staff are welcoming and friendly and they speak English. The food was delicious, you should try the shrimps with pineapple. Their desserts were also very good and the portions were big. It is more expensive than other restaurants but it is worth it! Highly reccomended!

Reserved a table here for our last night in Cuba, due to the reviews on TA. It definitely warrants the accolades - beautiful building, rose petals on the stairs, impeccable staff, great service, wide ranging menu with English translations, and all accompanied by very talented string musicians on the balcony.

We had bread rolls to start with a choice of three dipping sauces and olive oil and balsamic (yes, in Cuba!!). I had the shrimp and mushroom risotto which was excellent - would have been happy with it in a restaurant in Rome!

It is more expensive compared to other Cuban restaurants but definitely worth it. A very fitting choice for our last night.

The decor, ambience, and food are fantastic, but the stringed duet on the Juliet balcony take the experience to another level. I suppose that by local standards the prices are dear, but it is really worth every CUC.

We found this place via Trip Advisor and we would recommend this amazing restaurant to anyone who visits Havana. The food was stunning. We ordered the spicy seafood casserole which was delicious and the steak which was cooked to perfection. Our lovely waiter Osbel made sure we had a perfect evening, along with the rose petals on the stairs and an awesome duo playing fabulous music all contributed to making it a night to remember!!
