Indicated as 10 best "paladares" in Havana, we went there expecting less than they offer. Great service, gifts, and a wonderful meal. Great dinner for a very good price. Very recommended

We were only in Havana for 3 nights and San Cristobal was recommended to us by our hotel. I am so glad they did as it was a wonderful meal with great service.

arrived here after recommendation by kuoni rep. Gorgeous interior, attentive staff and the food was absolutely divine. When we explained we didn't eat meat the waiter arranged a meat free tapas starter for us. Seafood mains were gorgeous as was house wine. Highly recommend.

Everything about this restaurant was fantastic! Beautifully decorated, great food, fantastic service - it was soo good we actually went twice, making it our choice for our final meal in Havana. On our first visit we were lucky enough to dine in one of the private rooms and experience great service. The waiters were really attentive and friendly, whilst still... More

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.
