La Cocina de Lilliam is a paladar, or privately owned restaurant, in Miramar not far from the Memories hotel complex, though it may be hard to find. I was assisted by a young Cuban who went out of his way to accompany me right to the door, but it only cost me 5 CUC for a cab back to my... More

Garden, tropical setting. Sitting outside but well protected from elements. Efficient, attentive wait staff. Able to respond to specific needs of patrons. Excellent preparations, with Paella and Fish in a bag as features. Best Flan of our trip. Expensive by Cuba standards, but well worth it. One of the best Paradors in Havana.

You need a reservation to get in this place but it is worth the wait. The food was absolutely delicious, from the homemade bread, to drinks and entrees. This is a must for anyone visiting Cuba. Highly recommended.
