    A bird's-eye view over the city that is worth. Also you can see some birds scavengers, like vultures, flying over the building. You can visit but not to go to eat at the restaurant. The restaurant is running, taking an eternity to serve (to the non-Cuban). By the way, served a few Cubans who were on a table next to ours that fast. Account not included 10% gratuity, and due to the delay in the service, and their priority of service to the island, as not is deserved it, we do not allow Cubans to stop him.

    I went with a friend recommended by our host, because the restaurant is located in the 33 floor of this building and has spectacular views, but our experience with food was really unfortunate. We ask caramelized shrimp (prawns with a lot of oil, unsalted and they knew too sweet) by 12 CUC and carpaccio of lobster (which only knew vinegar and was practically inedible) by 14CUC. The prices are not too expensive, but the food was really horrible.

    We stayed there, we rented the Department a family, on the 11th floor, the building is a little careless, but the view is the only building with so many floors is impressive, it is worthwhile to climb up to the latter only to see Havana in its entirety!
