Description: 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.

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.

We visited this restaurant after down loaded the city of Havana...a little gem...A little more expensive but it was the best place we found for food on our 3 night stay in the city..
I was quite sure of the starter as I’ve never eaten Cuban food before, it was definitely different but good..
The staff were lovely and were dressed up for Halloween...so attentive and the restaurant has a nice ambience and the view is lovely at sunset...I would thoroughly recommend and also download the city first before your visit as these places are quite hidden away ...

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. No one in the group liked it. Shrimp dish lacked any flavor, beef & chicken dishes got good reviews. Staff was friendly and attentive. Would I return? Maybe to order off the menu and hope for better results.

Went here on the recommendation of a friend. This is a hidden gem and a must if you are in Havana. Situated on the 5th floor of an apartment block, this restaurant is quaint and an excellent venue for a meal. On arrival, staff were attentive (but not overbearing) and despite full reservations for that evening they still fitted us in (full marks, most just shrug and say they are full). The ambience both inside and on the covered terrace is great. Food was very good and promptly served. Prices were very reasonable too.
What we loved was the personal service, the great atmosphere and the relaxing ambience with a great view. The selection of wines was excellent too. Highly recommended.
