I made it a point to come here for lunch of a weekday afternoon. It is literally a house with bad signage so its hard to miss, but its at the stated address. We were seated immediately since there weren't many people here. It is inside an old colonial house decked out with amazing paintings and vintage shelves and dining... More

On one of our last nights in Havana, on the advice of the manager of our Hostel, we had a fantastic dinner in an elegant restaurant that has recently opened in Havana. We started with an exceptional pumpkin soup and salad followed by swordfish. Everything was beautifully prepared and tasted great. There are also magnificent paintings on the walls by... More

When we arrived it was similar to completing a treasure hunt. It was hard to find but worth it! Great food and service. Located in an interesting suburb of Havana. With many large mansion like houses, frozen in time!

The art and architecture were gorgeous. Service was impeccable. Food was great but nothing amazing. However this experience was my favorite of the trip and very memorable. Lovely relaxed meal. My friend actually had the best mojito of the trip at this place so I would recommend that.

We joined two other couples for an evening at Le Chansonnier, which isn't the easiest restaurant to find. It is located in a residential area; a converted home. On display at the restaurant is art by a local Cuban artist, making it a dining experience to stimulate all the senses! We had an assortment of dishes within our group. The... More

The conversion of this old house is really lovely. The food was good - not the best we had in Havana but good enough to recommend a visit. We stayed in Vedado and it was nice to walk here. Went back a second time to have cocktails on the porceh. Nice.

When we walked into this restaurant we could hardly believe our eyes. Elegant, beautiful, classic. We were meeting another couple who hadn't shown yet, so we ordered some sparkling water while we waited. What a surprise to see Pellegrino! We waited some more and decided to order some wine. A small wine list, but the Chilean Cabernet was delicious. Our... More

Traveled as a group of 11 and we loved this place so much we went twice during our stay! The home is beautiful. The art is lovely. The bathrooms are clean and really funky - in a very cool way. Our servers - Rose Marie and Octuvia - were incredible and handled our large group with smoothly. The food was... More

This is an extremely attractive restaurant with excellent food and outstanding service at very reasonable prices. By far the best dining experience we had while in Havana.

Poetry in concept, flame in the heart, the stone shell can not contain the light of our spaces. Come to a restaurant to walk with bare feet and face in the clouds. Designed, served, cooked, passionate.
