About
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.

Our favourite restaurant in Havana. Food is delicious, staff are lovely and the cocktails are great, especially the daqueris, and it’s a lovely setting, with views of the Melancon. Even the lift interior is beautiful.

They tols us that the queen of Spain Sophia was dinning here some years ago. But maybe they are not as good as that time. The meat was over cooked and they ran out of ice. But the seafood was very good.

First of all ask for a table on the balcony area versus inside. Better ambiance. We were with a small tour group and had a choice of shrimp, beef, meatballs or chicken. Bread basket and appetizer plates were good. The vegetable soup was not good....More

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.
