This was by far the best meal we had in Havana with by far the best setting, which is a lovely open air garden. When the taxi pulled up outside it just looked like another house in a suburb but once through the gate it all changed. Food excellent, wine good and all priced ok. We ate there prior to... More

Went here for dinner, and it was raining, with the greenery around it was just awesome to sit in the veranda type seating with good wine and really good food. We tried some sea food as well as few other options suggested by the waiter. Everything turned out to be tasty and we didnt regret ordering anything. Although, later when... More

Went on my last night in Havana. Is in the area of Miramar. Beautiful paladar with a lot of vegetation and fountains. It looks like a house with pretty mahogany furniture. I order the grilled lobster and my husband order the snapper baked on foil with veggies. For dessert, I ordered the basil gelato that was incredible. I definitely recommended.

Dined at Cocina de Lilliam three times in February, twice with group (24 Canadian farmers, 30 co-op leaders) and once for a quiet meal with friends. Superb all three times. If you are coming with a group, ask Lilliam if she will prepare a range of dishes to be served "family style" to get a true sense of the amazing... More

The journey was early evening in a 1952 yellow convertible Chevrolet, so we were off to a good start. The road soon became a bit uneven and then almost a track. At this point our driver had to carefully negotiate around two elderly people siting in the road going through bin liners. We were beginning to wonder if he knew... More

The house is beautiful and the environment is like being at home, classic, old but at the same time refreshing. My family and I enjoyed very much! The meal is delicious!
