We were there for Valentine's night, booking worked fine, service was reasonable but the quality of main dishes was not quite what we hoped for. Lobster was served with fish, not shrimps, as they did not have them, and it was swimming in a not so nice sauce that killed whatever delicate taste the lobster has. I took a typical... More

We had a wonderful lunch here in this new and "fashionable" restaurant. It was one of our favorites in Havana. I would happily go back again.

This place has a nice view and linen tableclothes and they are very full of themselves. The staff does not exhibit one bit of the warmth and friendliness we found elsewhere in Havana, the prices are high, the portions are small and the food, while fancy, is bland. I wouldn't go back.

Good not great. Walking distance from Hotel Nacional. Food was better than Nacional - though to be fair we did not dine at Nacional's best restaurant. Had dinner. Fish good, service good. Very friendly

This is a family run business. The restaurant have mostly tourists, and was included in our tour. It was a big surprise since the food was excellent, fresh and the service was very friendly and professional. Great cocktails and desserts. Very nice feeling, seating at the terrace with the views of New Havana (Vedado). We strongly recommend.

Our group stopped here for lunch as part of our all day tour. We were offered a variety of drinks, and our choice of entrée and beverages. We started with a nice house salad. For my entrée, I chose The Creamy Rice with Seafood, which was good, rice in a cream sauce with shrimp , scallops ettc., although I found... More

Its setting, in the fifth floor penthouse of an apartment block, doesn't exactly offer a panoramic cityscape so much as a view of the surrounding buildings and streets.. And after write-ups in the NY Times and Lonely Planet, we were perhaps foolish to waltz in without a reservation at 8PM and expect to land a table. But our luck held,... More

At some of the more upscale paladar's one has to be reminded that one is in what was someone's home. This is true at Cafe Laurent. Entering into the bustling dining room, furnished and decorated with a spare yet comfortable 1950s flair, it's not immediately apparent that this is or was an apartment in a high-rise building over-looking the massive...

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.
