Locals bring you in saying it is local! It is three times the price of the most expensive restaurant in Cuba and they pay locals to bring tourists in!

Locals befriend and drag you in, they work on commission, food is poor, they add tax and then say you need to add tip too. This is not the case in CUBA. The tax is a con. They also bring crusty dry bread covered in flies (obviously left over from the last table), then try and charge you even when you haven't eaten it. Massively overpriced food. AVOID

Staff was very courteous. Food was well prepared and portions were extremely generous. Resto has eye pleasing decor. Only negative is that it's on an upper floor with narrow steps, didnt see any access for people with reduced mobility/wheelchair.

We were at the bar near the restaurant and some locals came to talk to us. They were so pushy, we pretty much just said "yes" to avoid them.

It was our first night in Cuba so we didn't know what to expect for prices. We thought it was pricey, but we also thought perhaps this is an upscale restaurant. When we got our food it was pretty clear it wasn't upscale. It was obvious by the second place we went to in Cuba that we paid probably twice the price of even a tourist restaurant. The dishes are pretty basic: Meat, beans, rices, and a few veggies. Nothing was special. The meat wasn't good either.

The local guys receive a commission if they bring you here. When you choose ythe cheaper lobster dish they say it is not available only the more expensive one! Food very average, poor service
