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

I've been several times in this restaurant. Allways good service and decent food. Seafood is one of the best. My favorite is the octopus. Good bar selection with premium drinks

I have been at this restaurant at least 20 times. Doctor Café (so-called because it's run by a family of medics) is one of Havana's best places to eat. Located in a quiet suburban street in the embassy district of Miramar, the consistency, value and atmosphere at this unassuming paladar are reflected in its popularity, especially among the expat community...

It was excellent. Make reservations but might have to wait a while for food to come out. Just order a bottle of wine and enjoy. It is romantic and also good place to sit with friends and catch up...
