This restaurant also offers accommodation but without our guide book (Time Out, edition 2005), we would never find it. There is no sign for the accommodation, nor the restaurant. However, it a worthwhile trip to visit this restaurant. The prices were slightly above the price range we experienced but the quality of the food and the service was above reproach.... More

Superb place to dine - the food was excellent, service very friendly and the ambiance just extraordinary. The only negative point during our dinner was the loud music from the club or bar upstairs which really disturbed our conversations.

In the middle of a residential block, a blue gem of a restaurant. Snapper cooked perfectly resting on a pumpkin puree was but one of four great offerings we tried. The service was excellent and staff spoke English. The atmosphere was modern yet rested in a high ceilinged old home with artistic highlights. go and enjoy!

Wow- what a find. I brought a group of 11 here for the last meal of our trip, and it was worth it. The beautiful, high-ceiling, chandeliered interior makes it hard to believe you're in a residential neighborhood in Havana, with a panaderia selling white bread for ten cents just across the street. The food was excellent, especially the lobster.... More

Our small group rented classic cars to take us to this Paladar which is a renovated home built in the 1880's and given to the present owners. Everyone chose different meals and some were excellent, such as our duck, and others were not so great, such as very dry chicken. The presentations were lovely and drinks good too. They even... More

it is not easy to find, you really need to have some landmarks as well as the address, but it is worth it. The restaurant is beautiful, they did an amazing reno of this beautiful old house. You will want to do a tour of the restaurant as part of your visit and make sure that you visit the bathrooms.... More

It's not the easiest place to find, even by Paladar standards, but so well worth the extra effort. We called ahead and went for lunch during the week. Had the whole place to ourselves. Great service, amazing food, all in a world class setting. If you're in the Vedado area, don't miss this one!

Neutral review. Didn´t really get to eat here, just as the sun was setting about 7:00. Our second failed attempt after trying La Torre (no elevator to the 33rd floor). Entered and heard lots of hammering, ladders, workment at that hour.. A bit more pretentious looking than other paladares, though the blue light entrace is alluring. Looks like it's a... More
