Secret location as Cuba has little or no signage

Superb food, excellent service and very fast at that. We sat in an area which had a nice cool breeze on a balmy night. Highly recommended and also although a little expensive in cuban terms the food was just wonderful and large servings.

Had my first meal in La Habana at this paladar - and one never forgets the first. Great food and mojitos. Lovely environment. Reservations are needed - we didn't have one and were easily accommodated at the bar with a great view to the sunset. Really lucky!

Hard to find (you have to remember the address or jineteros will tell you it is closed and will try to bring you elsewhere) as they are not permitted to have a street sign, but worth looking for - on the 5ft floor of a residential block, very nice view. Excellent meal, tasty soups, good fish. Efficient service, good ambiance,... More

We went to dinner to this paladar, it is well appointed and very well run. Modern in its ambiance and you can see the staff trying their best to please. Food was good, and their house wine is also good. They have an elevator and will accompany you up and down, and will get a taxi to take you to... More

This is an outstanding place with lovely balcony atmosphere behind National hotel, superior service and food with a slightly French flair. Fish and chicken both good as are best Fries in Havana.

Don't just turn up in this nondescript street and hope to see signs of a restaurant . Cafe Laurent is hidden away at the top of an apartment block accessed by a cluastrophobic lift or stairway. Luckily our cab dropped us right outside but even then we were unsure, but once upstairs you enter a rooftop dining area not out... More

We booked this Paladar as it was close to the National Hotel where we were going for the historical tour (highly recommend, no charge, just turn up, it starts at 3) and had very good reviews and we were glad we did. It was my Husbands favourite of the four that we ate at. Everything was extremely good and professional... More

My visit to Cafe Laurent was purely by chance, and I can never say enough about this amazing place! Being a foodie, I'm a bit spoiled when it comes to fine dining, however the meal I experienced was one of the best I've tasted around the world. The view was also exquisite and to watch the sun set over the... More

We ate dinner here with our Cuban friends and the most memorable thing was the style of the restaurant. It's a fantastic retro 50's art deco style apartment with a lovely terrace. Try to be seated there when you make your reservation. The food was good, the waitress was a little bit inexperienced but very nice.
