We ate here 2 times as we were thrilled the first time we ate here. The food is very good and very well presented. The restaurant is very nicely furnished and decorated. Service excellent and great atmosphere! Definitely to recommend! Great Price / Quality.

A very nice place with tasty food (can recommend the cold cucumber soap and the sauted vegetables especially :)). Accomidating friendly staff. Cool interior. Good prices.

This restaurant is at the street level - was it formerly in someone's home? - and seats perhaps 20 people. The room is decorated in a clean modern idiom, and the prices are very reasonable (by international standards), given the quality. I had a the grilled fish - easily the best fish I ate in Cuba - which was served... More

The food here was so good we ate there twice in our four day stay in Havana and wished we could have gone again. Ridiculously affordable - dinner for four with many cocktails was only $90 CUC with tip. The croquette appetizer and chicken finger appetizer were amazing. Best version of Affogato dessert ever! The entrees were plentiful and great... More

I think there's some confusion over the location of this restaurant - the restaurant I'm talking about is at street level on the Calle Galiano - it's not in someone's home on the 11th floor. The Calle Galiano restaurant was superb, a real pleasure after the blandness of the majority of Cuban cuisine. The staff are lovely, if a little... More

I first ate here in Nov '12, the food and service was excellent by Cuban standards. The prices were very good along with the food. when I came back in Feb'13, I was truly disappointed. For whatever reason, new owners took over and raised the prices to the sky. The shrimp appetizer was expensive for the size of shrimp and... More

One of the most delightful dining experiences in terms of the setting, hosts and menu. We felt welcomed into this beautiful home - transported really to a view of what the future of Cuba will be. The personal touches - from the sunflower painted wall to the mixture of antique and modern furniture - created an elegant and warm setting.... More

From the moment we arrived we were treated like honored guests in our hosts home. Located on the 11th floor of a high rise apartment house this paladar has only four tables. Tables on the balcony have a wonderful view of Havana. For a restaurant of this size it had an extensive menu of two appetizers and four main course... More

Told that paladares are restaurants in someone's home, we made our reservation to try one. The stark entrance of this high rise building did not prepare us for the beautifully decorated apartment, with sunset views, wonderful food, full menu, charming waiter....a perfect evening.

You have not been to Cuba if you do not go to Castas y Tal. Phone: 833 1425, (high rise building 2 blocks from Hotel El Presidente) Castas & Tal is the exception to a country whose food is otherwise boring. An absolute jewel in the crown. Not so easy to find (since it is a private residence in a... More
