an elegant restaurant, more suitable for a romantic meal than a large group or family. Amazing art on walls and great attentive service.

The place is beautifully decorated with original art. The rooms are nicely decorated. The food is very good and tasty with awesome presentation. The seafood... More

This was a beautiful restaurant in a quiet residential neighborhood. It was a beautiful gran home where all the rooms had been converted into unique and beautiful dining rooms. There was original contemporary artwork throughout the rooms and each of the menus where hand painted individually. The food was outstanding with a contemporary spin on modern french. Could not have... More

I had lunch here recently with a group. The food and service were both very good. I love the ambiance! This is a solid bet for dining in Vedado.

For Cuban norms a Very Nice decorated restaurant in a Beautiful house. Excellent service and good food. The only minus could be that is a little isolated and you need to take a taxi as it's Well hidden.

My tour group and I for our last visit of Havana, Cuba went to the fine restaurant that was hidden within a residential area. Did not see any sign as he restaurant looks like an ordinary house from the outside. But once you step inside, such a beautiful setup for nice, exquisite 4-5 star dining. They serve a variety of...

My wife and I ate here and were very pleased. The ambiance and setting were unique and charming, with different decor in each dining room and beautiful art on the walls. From the seafood croquettas (best I've ever had) to the salad with chocolate dressing, and the delectable chocolate torte, our dining experience was fantastic. Pork was also very good... More

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

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.
