Good food and and nice atmosphere

Right on the Prado, with a nice outdoor balcony with tables overlooking the street scene. Service was pretty fair. Food was quite tasty (chicken criollo and stewed rabbit entrees). Would return here.

It's a bit tricky to find - you have to walk in the middle of the Prado as opposed to the pavement on the side otherwise you'll never see the sign! Officially it opens at 12pm. We arrived at 12:30 but the front door was locked. We rang the doorbell and a few seconds later an elderly lady popped her... More

This restaurant is half way up Prado walking towards the sea. It is a first floor restaurant overlooking the large Prado Avenue with the centre walk way. It is the perfect spot for people watching whilst eating reasonably priced good quality food. The prices were around 9CUC's / approx. £6 per main and 2 CUC's for a beer approx. £1.40... More

The service was good and the food was tasty so no complaints and it was located only a few blocks from where we were staying so it was a convenient for us to get to. This paladar over looks Prado so the view is great, however the prices reflect the tourist only clientele. There are other local places that served... More

nice restaurant with a great view. We are here 2 time while we stayed in Havana. We were short of money so we would share the meal. Plenty of food for two. Their Flan is unbelieveable.

This is an excellent Paladar of Cuban food, the portions are great and the prices are very good. The ambiance is very good; this like the living room and balcony and porch of Doña Blanquita apartment which is in a second floor.

Went here twice for dinner from the Iberostar hotel. Very solid mid-range restaurant. Stick with the Cuban specialties (Ropa vieja was amazing, yucca and plantains were also outstanding). Other non-Cuban dishes were only average. Nice balcony overlooking the Prado.

The atmosphere, service, and food were excellent, not to mention the view of the Avenida Prado. One must recall, however, that there are many things in short supply in Cuba, and beef was one of the things we found hard to find, including in this paladar. But what they lacked in certain foods, they more than made up for it... More

We almost missed this restaurant, as it is located on the 2nd floor. All you see is a door, with a sign, and stairs leading up. The restaurant has a terrace overlooking Paseo de Marti or Prado. The food was tasty, and the price was just right. You will not find many spices in Cuban food - just the basic.... More
