  • Fabulous moorish palace that is completely out of place! No idea about the food but the building is fascinating. There is a small entrance fee, but it entitles you to a free drink. Definitely worth.....  more »

  • Awesome place. beautiful decor and atmosphere, great food and service makes this place magical. A must see when in Cienfuegos.
  • One of my favourite places in Cuba. This is a National Treasure of architecture inside and out. Must see! I really enjoyed the live band on the roof. The view and the vibe is worth a few extra CUCs. Live a little!
  • Interesting building with ornate architecture inside & out. Rooftop bar with views across the ocean & serving delicious cocktails made it even better.
  • Magnificent exterior - an interesting contrast to the local European-inspired architecture as this building has more Indian influence. Well worth the long walk.
  • Great place. Now it is under restoration but still a beatitul place with great drinks and nice food.
