Light and bright spot with lovely rooftop outdoor dining. But that’s all that recommends this restaurant. The food was overpriced and not good at all. We ordered a sampler appetizer at our server’s suggestion and most of what was on the plate was either bland...More

Higher than the average prices in Havana, but it is certainly worth it.

It would take you an hour an a half to eat depending on how many you are and probably 10 minutes to walk to Parisien cabaret.

Brand new restaurant , opened in February 2011. We were one of it's first customers. A 'Palador 'style restaurant located in a penthouse apartment of an of classic 1950's building; with magnificent views over the city and of the ocean. interior decor is modern1950's cool, creative, and artfully appointed. the food was excellent!!! One could could compare easily to a fine restaurant in Paris, NY or London. staff are young and attentive and gave great service.
