I’ve been to many good restaurants and private paladars in Havana, but I want to offer an enthusiastic shout-out for this particular place. I’ve made 12 trips to Cuba since the year 2000, and I’ve eaten at Doña Blanquita’s probably a half-dozen times over the years, most recently in May of 2014. What started as a modest establishment has morphed... More

I had a pleasure to eat my dinner there during my holidays. Place is nicely decorated; there is even a fireplace with fire-like light :) Wide selection of food from sea food to European. I got the biggest Vienna schnitzel ever. Few tables are in a balcony with good town view. Place I would definitely visit again If I went... More

Went there on our first evening just by accident. Took Chicken+ Moros y Cristianos + Mojito. Rice was too salty and chicken Ok. Drink was average. Overall You can grab some food here, but dont expect much.

We stayed at the Seville hotel during our first visit and the Park View during our latest visit and this paladar is less than five-minute’s walk from both hotels. For us, this restaurant feels like “home cooking away from home”, the true spirit of a paladar. The food is fresh, well prepared and the service is always friendly and courteous.... More

This paladar on Prado has a wonderful balcony that is ideal for a romantic date or people watching. Food was good but way too greasy for my taste. I had the pulpos al ajillo with congrí and both had way too much fat. A bit pricey considering you can have a way better meal and price either at Los Nardos... More

We booked a table at this restaurant based on a review in a guide-book and were not disappointed - You access the restaurant via a slightly dingy stairway but you then arrive at a charming small restaurant with a nice balcony where we were fortunate to sit. The food and service were excellent, and it was very cheap, especially given... More

Cuban food has often been accused of being bland or tasteless. Those people must have missed Doña Blanquita. Located within walking distance of Parque Central and Museo de la Revolucion, Doña Blanquita offered one of the best culinary experiences I had in Cuba. They offered me a daily special which wasn't on any menu: skewered pork with a generous amount... More

If you want to see a traditional paladar this is a place to visit. The food was home made, huge portions. Make sure you book a table on the balcony, so you can enjoy the lovely view over Paseo de Marti. Although the food was average it was quite interesting experience.
