A perfect spot for our last night in Cuba

The setting, a rooftop with the setting sun, then dining under the stars was a perfect ending to our trip. Our entire group (Pan Am Historical Foundation) had a fabulous ending to a magical trip.

Atelier is an incredibly beautiful and welcoming paladar. The dining rooms and roof are delightful and the food was very good indeed. We dined here with a Cuban American Chef who cooked with the owner. It is amazing what Niuris Higueras (the owner and chef) is able to create with limited facilities and products. The food was excellent and atmosphere... More

Atelier Paladar is an invention for tourists, with prices and offerings that bear no relation to the real Cuba or what can be experienced in Havana.

From the outside one sees a beautiful white building with lovely planting surrounding it. After climbing the steps we entered a dining room with crocheted table cloths, and an eclectic assortment of old glass ware and place settings....all very artistically arranged. We had duck in a fruit sauce, and asparagus in a light cheese sauce. The wine list was modest,... More

This is a beautiful paladar in Vedado. When the weather is nice, it's great to dine on the rooftop terrace. The restaurant is located on the second floor, so it's necessary to climb stairs to reach the dining rooms. Service is pretty good - not the best in Havana, but not the worst either. The food is delicious. Recommended.

We arrived to a totally dark house, but a greeter welcomed us and led us up the stairs. We had made reservations. Arriving in a large dark dining room, we saw a foursome dining by candlelight. A bit confused, we again told the young woman who greeted us that we had reservations and asked if we could sit outside, and... More

Our group of 30 with Earthbound Expeditions enjoyed the family style appetizers. chicken, rice and beans, fish, desserts and a welcome cocktail. The staff was friendly and worked hard to welcome us. I enjoyed the photos on the walls by a local artist. I'm not sure if they take individuals/small groups as the tables seemed to be prepared for larger... More

This place was recommended by the concierge at the Melia hotel nearby and it was great. It was a bit difficult to find as there was no sign on the street. Better signage would be very helpful. The entrance way, once we found it, was a beautiful garden. There is some wonderful artwork in the stairwell up to the restaurant.... More

Recommended by our hotel, we visited Atelier last week. The hotel is in a former private residence (an amazing one!) As a paladar, it is not state run, but privately owned. The menu is eclectic with a french twist. Ingredients are carefully sourced and meticulously prepared. We were fortunate to dine outside on the terrace, allowing us to take in... More

We had dinner in Atelier when Niuris, the owner, was there. Great service and pleasant talk about her experience running the restaurant. The food was delicious. We definitively will come back.
