Went with 3 friends and let me tell you, the TALENT was incredible. The band, dancers and singers were all great. It's not the cheapest venue around, but for an all around variety show type of feel, it was amazing.

Many of the singers were big names in the past, and still want to perform the classics for people. Of course, they are older, and not particularly in style as per modern music and what the youth want today, but if you want traditional Cuban culture and music, this is it. GO THERE !

If you're looking for a cabaret entertainment restaurant, you might like the place, however, we visited it just to eat and in my opinion there are far better restaurants in Central Havana for better price which are more authentic.

• We went as a group that contained quite a few who were vegetarians. The food selection was very limited.

• The pizza that was available was expensive and not the greatest for the money paid. One pizza had a piece of porcelain (possibly part of a plate chipped at the edge) that was about to be ingested by a kid. Even if that is taken as an exception, the food was still very average and expensive.

• The service also was not the greatest for the money paid. We spent a whole lot of time in the restaurant which otherwise could have been spent sightseeing.

• They do not take credit card and we have to spend CUCs.
If you are part of Havana tour and if the tour guide insists on this restaurant – Just say no. It is better to eat in sit-out restaurants in Old Havana that costs less, tastes same or better and is quick.

We were really hungry and asked for a paladar nearby, and a local man took us here (walked several blocks with us to show the way). Food was normal, nothing special, and the prices were three times higher than in the other places we went. Service was effective but not specially friendly. Toilet was awful.
