A wonderful paladar recommended to us by our Casa owner - we needed to eat a late lunch/early dinner at 5pm before a late night flight home. The only tell-tale sign that the restaurant is state-owned was the lack of loo seat and air-con in the Ladies! The staff were so professional and the food and presentation wouldn't be out... More

I thought we pulled up to a home in Brooklyn! Inside it looked like Grandma's house with antiques filled to the brim and it smelled like delicious Italian tomato sauce. But although Italian food is on the menu, the Cuban offerings are delicious! We had tapas of crabmeat filled taro pastry and squid. The squid was so tender! The savory... More

My wife and I had dinner three times in seven nights of our Havana visit. After trying the lobster the first night, my wife stayed with it throughout. I had the ropa viejo and duck the first two times but tried the lobster the third time and it was sublime. This place is clean and interesting with many clocks, the... More

On a recent visit to Havana, we went to several paladares (restaurants owned by individuals in private homes) and had a particularly wonderful experience at the Decameron. The service was impeccable, and the food, "Oh, my!" We had a seafood risotto with squid in its own ink, a salad and drinks for a very reasonable price. The risotto was sublime... More

You walk up the front garden path to this restaurant and ring the bell to be let in. Decoration - traditional, and interestingly quirky - a wall full of clocks, a suspended chair.... Well set tables and very good food. We ate inside, but the front garden is a terrace with tables, maybe for an aperative. Service from noon to... More

We had dinner here 2 times during a recent holiday in Havana - this place is really good. The decor is distinctive (lots of pendulum clocks - all keeping good time) & the service smooth & efficient. All this is eclipsed by the excellent food. And in meat-loving Havana, a place with excellent veggie options is not to be sniffed... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our meals at Decameron. We went twice for dinner as it was located near our casa particular. We enjoy typical Cuban food and shared plates of roast chicken and "ropa vieja" along with rice and beans and "tostones". All were delicious. We wished that the very good mojitos were a trifle less expensive, but still a good... More

We ate an incredible meal here. The Marlin tartare was one of the best starters I have ever eaten, and my boyfriends steak was succulent and perfectly cooked. This was a step above the somewhat limited Cuban cuisine of other paladars and I cannot recommend it enough. Go there!

We'd been looking for a Paladar with a good reputation before travelling to Havana and found Decameron which was conveniently located within 5 minutes walk of our hotel in Vedado. We also found the idea of clock adorned walls an intriguing idea and decided to book. After ringing the doorbell, we had a warm welcome from the waiter and despite... More
