Lovely find and best Mojito in town

We returned here two years later and found this Paladar still a treasure. It is small, intimate, and lovely. The food is great, with a creative twist. Staff are attentive and the wine list is excellent. We ate in other restaurants while in Havana, one more expensive and one less. NAO was by far the... read more

I have eaten here twice and both times it was very good. Rather small table area on first floor but more tables upstairs. First came here with local Cuban Tour Guide who recommended it and it was very good. Came back again on my own and very pleased with the service, food offerings and price. Suggest you try multiple appetizers... More

Didn't eat here, but the drinks are amazing! Seriously the best Piña Colada/Piña Catalana I've ever had. Also the stuff is very friendly! And if you're a budged traveller, go in this place between 4-6 pm, since then all drinks are -50% off so you'll pay around 1,5-2€/drink. I highly recommend to order some of the drinks mentioned above since... More

Though I did not have any main dishes here, my friends and I kept returning here during our trip to visit with the Bar staff, Yoni, Johnny, and Palmo. These guys were fantastic, and the reason that NAO was worth it. Between fixing drinks and taking care of other customers, they would teach us to dance, practice their English, it... More

We've been to this place for dinner, the atmosphere is nice, drinks are good and service very attentive. We had a typical cuban plate and it was above average for the country (food in Cuba in general is not very good). The only critic is the price, more expensive than equivalente options around.

I stumbled upon NAO and met Yoni there, a great bar tender who loves to have a good time. I kept returning throughout the duration of my trip for the food and drinks. I highly recommend going to NAO. The food is incredibly well priced and the experience is invaluable. Some of the friendliest people I met in Cuba the... More

Nice location but poor service and food. They didn,t have lobster, then they didn,t have red snapper so we opted for fish of the day. We waited 1 1/4 hours for our starters - which were poor and the main course was served directly after. This consisted of a large slab of dry fish and a blob of mash. My... More

This was our first night in Havana and it was hard to beat. The food was excellent. I ordered ropa vieja (which sounds odd) but was prepared brilliantly with the sauces perfect. Do not miss this eating experience in Havana.

food is great, prices are very moderate, even for wine, service is friendly and tried its best. The only little drawback was the mix of a very cold a/c and fan, but this is probably just me ;-)

we had lunch here in between our classic car ride and walking tour of Havana, meal was okay but limited menu, but the staff were very friendly and tried with their limited english to engage with you. Could do with some more light in the room upstairs.
