Nice setting even though it was a bit too dark, had the Paella which was extremely fishy which says to me not fresh and the dish was also dry so overcooked; my friend had something else which he said was good, so a bit hit...More

We were recommended this restaurant and read about it in The Lonely Planet for Cuban food. There is no name on the door and you climb up two flights into a virtually pitch black restaurant. We came early to avoid the queues that are always...More

A definite winner in my book. Food was flavorful and service was excellent (Ariel was the best!). The white bean soup was the best dish I had during my whole trip, and I had many great dishes. In addition, if the garlic lobster is available,...More
