The chicken breast I ordered was tough (how wrong can one go with chicken?). I pointed this out to the waiter who in turn tried to show me I wasn't cutting it right, with my knife???!!! Chicken breast?? This is the only Paladar we visited in La Habana, with a service charge, or some additional charge of 10%. The decor... More

Smallish paladar, lovely atmosphere, terrific food and service - best that I found in Havana. If you are in Vedado, we worth stopping for lunch or dinner!

We had shredded beef and duck confit on some of our visits here, all very good, and the chocolate mousse is awesome. Great atmosphere. Good service most of the time.

I was in Havana for 10 days in June and ate there 6 times! Tried it for lunches and dinners and had great food and excellent service each time. I took my family there one day for lunch 10 people and everyone loved it.

This is a top eatery full-stop but given its in Havana (where food quality in my experience really did vary) this is a great place for delicious, authentic-tasting food. I ordered white fish which was very generously portioned and seasoned beautifully. It was served with a few vegetables and I had (home cut) chips which were equally delicious. My friend's... More

Many reviews of eating places in Cuba include a reminder that "well this is Cuba" - so don't expect too much. Things are changing and no doubt good food will become more available soon. But excellent food is here now, being served at The Decameron - an intimate and welcoming establishment five minutes walk from the Melia Cohiba and it's... More

We ate at all possible paladars in Havana and Decameron is by far one the best. By husband who is mostly a vegetarian enjoyed their chicken so much that he wanted to return again and again. I ate the lobsters which were amazing. Must go is you're in Havana.

Prices are a little high above average in Cuba and the lack of parking... More
