Wide choice of dishes available. Superb service and delicious food. My friends and I have been there at least 4 times within 2 weeks. Give it a try.

A pretty restaurant fronting the Malecon. They did station a guy out front to try to entice people in, and we gave it a try Pleasantly surprised. Good food and portions, though it was expensive. I had a nice pizza. Service was good, decor and ambience very nice.

A work colleague recommanded me this very nice restaurant in La Habana, situated just in front of the malecon with a beautiful view on the ocean. In a town where it is not so common to find some delicious food (international standard, I mean), that place has been like a pure oasis on our way. Everithing we had was good... More

We were here four of the six nights that we were in Havana and it saved us. Lets face it; Cuba is not exactly the culinary mecca of the world. I am vegetarian so in a country where pork is the main staple, this place was a great refuge for us. The pizzas were great, vegetable salad excellent and we... More

This place is simply amazing. We stayed 6 days in Havana and came to this place twice, that is how much we loved it. Food is exquisite and the service is the BEST service we had in Havana. Our server was basically by our table to ensure we had everything from water to wine. Not only the server but also... More

Read about Castropol in Lonely Planet so thought we would give it a go. Had a sharing starter, followed by prawns & fish. Was fine, nothing special though and not worth the relatively high prices for Cuba. Anyway, 24h later the two of us were bent double over the toilet with issues at both ends. Only same food we had...

This paladar get's too much attention on the internet. Too much tourist want too eat here and this has impact on the overall services. The food is OK, but you don't feel appreciated and welcome. They act as a goverment company and are not happy to work here and not friendly. The paladar is too big and a bit out... More
