Approaching the restaurant was scary we thought we were in the wrong place but when we found it we were amazed at this diamond in the rough. The decor was fantastic and we were welcomed warmly. The staff were tip top and interesting they showed us photos of themselves and Beyoncé when she ate there they were so proud. The... More

Had a wonderful lamb stew. The service was a world class mix of formality and charm! The dining areas had an elegant flamboyance.

Had no problems booking a table for 2 for the same evening. It was a 15 minutes walk from Parque Central along Calle San Rafael, which was initially about 400 metres of shops and then residential homes, including Paladar San Cristobel. The restaurant, on the ground floor, comprised of 4 beautiful high ceiling rooms. The first 2 were air conditioned... More

Every dish was delicious, we mostly had seafood it was fresh and seasoned very well. The former home seats people in many rooms filled with art and antiques. It is down a dark street but not too worry it is not dangerous.

We dined at numerous highly rated paladars in Havana. San Cristobal offered the best food, best service, and best hospitality. The setting is upscale and uniquely Cuban.

I had the pork and my friend the fish. Lovely side dish of rice and black beans. The door man is just amazing,... More

We visited this place on recommendation of Trip Advisor - but were extremely disappointed. The food was very poor quality, the atmosphere was impersonal & cold- and the waiters only interested in "upselling' different dishes & drinks to increase their revenue. We spoke at the end to the owner about the poor quality food & disappointing experience & he simply... More
