A former Spanish colonial government building turned into a fine-dining restaurant where Cuban & International Cuisine are combined with knowledgeable staff and jaw-dropping stained glass pieces!

Also if you leave your opened bag on the floor next to you with that much money and a camera in it ANYWHERE you are just asking for trouble. Sorry - that's just common sense that's not the staff's fault.
