A tropical corner

Tucked away from the centre of LA Havana but worth a visit for a calm and peaceful evening with delicious food, nicely presented ,quite European. Immaculately kept garden with a tropical feel. Good service, very clean, nice atmosphere.

This was the third and most expensive Paladar we tried during our stay in Havana. The terrace is spacious and beautiful. There was even a musician playing an electric piano for the patrons. The tuna tartlet I had as an appetizer was very tasty but the fish we had for our mains was overcooked and probably was from frozen although... More

Went to this restaurant with a group, some who had been there before. We ordered a little bit of everything and it was the best meal I had during my visit. The garbanzos, paella and octopus were wonderful. The surroundings are beautiful and the staff very nice and attentive. The one thing that was off putting is a 10% service... More

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.
