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

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.

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.

Superb and original food served in a garden setting to the gentle strains of popular piano music. Some way out of the old town you need a taxi to get there, needs a driver who knows the town and paladares well.

Second best by only a nose to Cafe Laurent. Wonderful atmosphere outside of downtown at a beautiful home with a garden. Dining in the garden in the evening air was refreshing. Food was fabulous and service was wonderful. Highly recommend the lamb.
