The food is pretty good, but there are better restaurants (in terms of both food and character) in Old Havana for the same price. Pop music videos shown on a TV in the corner and a hodgepodge rustic theme made the place feel a bit like a Cuban Applebees.

We had a really tasty and varied menu but the best bit was the service, Johnny and Palma were really friendly, efficient,professional and intelligent." Nao" means no in Portuguese but we'd definitely give it a big "Yes".

We ate ate NAO on the last night of our 2 weeks in Cuba, and it was one of the best. Both the classic Cuban dishes as well as the less typical rabbit were both fantastic, and well above average among restaurants here. The most surprising standout was the black beans. Even after having tons of them over our trip,... More

We popped into this restaurant for a drink and dessert. The cocktails were delicious and the desserts we had were very tasty too. I particularly liked the atmosphere of this restaurant. It was quirky, intimate and relaxing. I would definitely recommend and return.

We were recommended to eat here by another restaurant - I am not sure why. Decor quite good, looked promising, but after being served drinks (local wine was 35CUC, same wine 18CUC in other restaurants and 10CUC in supermarket) we waited over an hour for any food even though the place only had 2 other small parties. Food on arrival... More

Nao Paladar is a very good restaurant And while, yes it was expensive, and around the same price you will find in Sydney, London, New York it was worth it!!! So exhaust yourself looking for a better than ordinary meal without a booking, or just go right to the beginning of Calle Obispo (which I should have done on the... More

Having had a great experience at the wonderful Dona Eutimia the night before, 9 of us went to NAO with high hopes and OMG were we disappointed. To be honest I cannot think of one thing that we liked apart from the room was I suppose quite pleasant to sit in and my son quite liked his steak. What was... More

Had a fab meal here. Vegetarian eaters are well catered for. The rabbitt was lovely and the portions were huge. Desserts were also really good.
