We went there for dinner as it had good review on our travel guide (rough guides). What a deception! We ordered lobster and chicken. Lobster was good but very simply prepared, just grilled, no sauce and no side dish (had to pay extra for it) quite boring, and they charged more than 20 CUC for it where anywhere else in... More

Been here several times and I consider it a "hidden gem" amongst restaurants in Havana. It ain't sexy, decor or location wise, but man, the food is delicious & FRESH!! Stay with the seafood for apps & main. I ALWAYS order the ceviche (fish, not crab) and the grilled octopus with garlic. If i don't like the fish(es) that they... More

This is without any doubt the best option to spend some time and delight yourself with the yummiest food in a perfect environment with any company and ocassion!!! Ideal for couples, families and also company meetings. Reservations are not needed but I recommended because the place is usually full.

I'd been meaning to get in to this paladar for ages and just for one reason or another hadn't. Now I'm wishing I had gone here earlier! The location isn't too bad, being on the ground floor of a small apartment building. It is kind of tucked away in the corner, but still not a bad spot. There are several... More

I went to Doctor Cafe with my husband, we didn't have a reservation, but that was not a problem. They served us some delicious home made breads! I had some crab meat for starter and a grilled lobster for main dish, both were awesome! That was the best lobster I ever had!!! My husband had a steak with mashed sweet... More

Ask for the doctor's café salad, i'ts amazing and the "malanga" puree is great, don't miss 'it. I'd visited them every time I have to spend time in Havana..

If you eat nowhere else in Havana, please find the Doctor Cafe. We loved it so much we ate there 2 nights. Fantastic barbecue and appetizers. The best we found anywhere in Havana.

We just got back from Habana and I can happily say that with the help of Paladars such as this one we ate like Kings the entire trip. We went here on the advice of our taxi driver as we were staying not far away at the Melia Habana, and I couldn't thank him enough for the recommendation. They don't... More

We had the pleasure of dining here on our first night in the Miramar district of Havana. I was travelling with friends who have eaten here many times and it was highly recommended, for good reason! Service was very welcoming - we started off with a delicious pina colada, and I do mean delicious! As has been mentioned previously, there... More
