This was our last meal in Havana before going home. And what a meal it was! One of the very best during our week in Cuba. The owner spent some time with us gave us a very warm welcome and appreciation for dining in his and his wife’s restaurant. Fantastic Cuban music and wonderful service. Can’t say enough. If you visit Havana this place is a must!

This restaurant is in a former house dating back to the late 1600's, the bottom floor is a government office the second floor is a small family restaurant, perhaps 15 tables. The walls are covered in art work and it is a small restauant but well done. The owner will walk around and introduce himself asking if there is any think he csn do to improve our stay. The drinks are the best we have any had they come in small silver cups and are well made. The food is artistic and tasty best food and service we have had in years.
Great service and food

The beautiful entry was what caught my eye. You go up a gorgeous staircase lined with rose petals. We were greeted nicely by staff. The complimentary appetizer was amazing with plantains and black bean hummus. Our meals were incredible my husband had the typical food ropa Vieja and loved it. The live music at lunchtime was so nice it was open air and overlooking the streets right in the old town near the perfume shop. We had a mojito and sangria both very tasty. Our dessert was so yummy and then they gave us a complimentary dark rum to taste at the end. If ever we go back to Havana we will return and I highly recommend you try this place to support the family business. Loved this place so much.
