After finding this on tripadvisor and realising it was in the Miramar district (a short ride from our hotel), we decided to try La Cocina de Lilian on our 1st night in Havana. We didn’t know quite what to expect as we had not eaten at a Palador before and my husband was a bit dubious about eating in someone... More

Me and my girlfriend happened to just stumble in to a business card from this restaurant when we visited Havanna last new years and let's just say we were amazed! Walking in to the restaurant is like walking in to a tiny copy of a green wonderland. This oasis of green plants nice details and we'll fitted furnitured terrace area... More

Our guide Fidel (fideltapanes@gmail.com) took us to this paladar, saying they have the best seafood paella, but Dona Liliam calls it seafood rice! He told us not to order any starters, so we settled with his suggestion, ordered the seafood rice with beans and plantains on the side. Once the food arrived, it was just enough to leave all 4...

I have made 20+ trips to Havana and thus have some experience with the local dining scene. Recently I found Lilliam's and I go back to it whenever I have the chance. It deserves, I think, a much higher TripAdvisor rating, but part of the problem may be that it is rather off the beaten track. One needs a cab... More

we were there the other day. When we came the rain was in full force. As we parked the car, we were greeted by an attended who opened an umbrella to escort us into the resturant. The setting is outdoor,with a cover that not even one drop of the tropical rain came into the seating area. There are artificial water... More

My family and I went twice while we were on holidays. They server the best lobster tail and lamb in town. Seriously this is the best restaurant in Havana. The service is excellent. We know now where to eat when we go back.

I’ve been coming back to this restaurant for the last 13 years and have to say they have not lost their excellency whatsoever, which I find remarkable especially considering the great difficulties having a private business implies in Cuba. The quality of the food is remarkably tasty, fresh, beautifully presented. The place is a joy to be in; dining tables... More

The food is excellent and the place is unique; a house of the 50's remodeled with great taste in wood surrounded small and beatiful gardens. The only thing that was not that great was the attention, a little cold for site.
