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.

The charm and originality of Cafe Laurent was remarkable. We took a cool elevator plastered in old Hollywood newspaper up to the top floor restaurantt. The lunch was incredible. They were accommodating to vegetarians and pescatarians. We started with giant salads that were wonderful. One originally came with bacon, but when we explained that I was a vegetarian they immediately brought out a fresh one. We had fresh fish, ropo vieja –shredded beef on a bed of mashed potatoes that was amazing, and a vegetarian risotto. Dessert was ice cream and flan. Their mojitos were to die for!

Cafe Laurent is beautiful. It's open air with views of Havana and the restaurant is tastefully decorated. First class as a top notch restaurant. The service is excellent with friendly and efficient staff, the menu has a variety of selections, and the food is delicious. It's reasonably priced for such a fine restaurant. You can walk the few flights of stairs but there's also a well decorated, fun lift to bring you up. Their beverage menu is extensive. We had a group of 12 and it was wonderful, many small gatherings too. The restaurant can pull if off for a group or keep it intimate and romantic for a couple. Would definitely go back to Laurent, did I mention it's a beautiful setting!
