Best Restaurant in Havana

We ate ate a number of great restaurants in Havana. Vistamar however was the best. The waiter is very proactive and knowledgeable. He will offer to order for you and will start loading your table if your aren't careful so if you are on a budget be careful. Everything we had was delicious... read more

Paladar Vistamar certainly lives up to its reputation as being one of the best restaurants in Havana. The location, although out of the way, is worth the trip, with spectacular views of the ocean. The food was fresh and service was excellent. Make sure you book ahead, the restaurant does fill up very quickly. We had to witness a scene... More

Very clean, nice paladar with wonderful food. We had lobster in garlic sauce and it was fresh and tasty. The service is very friendly, and we explained we were in a hurry and they served us very quickly. It is in a second floor, so if you have problem with stairs this is not the place, but other than that,... More

If you are looking for the best food, good service and a great view, Vistamar is your place! I go to Cuba each year and I have tried a lot of restaurants there but this is my favorite without any doubt!

A good meal with good service, but nothing memorable sums up Paladar Vistamar. The restaurant is very good by Cuban standards, but doesn't compete in the international arena having served (highly recommended) dry chicken with mediocre accompaniments. The red snapper on the other hand was quite good, but nothing to write home about....

This is where we had our best meal of our stay. The grilled lobster is amazing. We sat on the deck and listened to the crashing waves on the sea wall. Very good service, too!

They have fantastic fish and seefood, but I had some meat and it was great as well. For european standard, it is big portions and slightly too oily, but tasted like heaven. Basically be sure to go there with an empty stomac, you will regret it otherwise - either because you will eat to much or because you will be... More
