Best Gems of Cuba

Excellent bar, friendly staff and some of the best cocktails known. Jonny and his team were superb. I was in Havana on my own for 3 days and these guys made it all worth it!

I went here a number of times during my stay in Havana. The food was great. But i kept coming back for the amazing house band... They were AMAZING. And the service was always great - the wait staff were alot of fun. Try the ropa vieja - really good! :)

There were 12 of us with our guide. They did not bat an eyelid. Our drinks and food were delicious. We spent a delightful lunchtime here - I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Visited here in July for pre-dinner cocktails - the service was very good and cocktails very good value for Havana. Food looked good and we wish we had stayed to eat as where we ended up was disappointing- lovely decor too.

This is located right at the bottom of Obispo Street as far as you can walk before the harbour! We were taken to this place by our guide for the day tour of Havana. It was so good that we went back on the last night of our holiday. The chicken ala orange and the fish courses are especially good.... More

To be honest I would not have found this restaurant without our lovely walking tour guide. Our lunch was included in the tour and that's were we ate. Service was very friendly and we started of with the famous Mojito. The starter was a mixed platter with deep fried banana chips and other tasty nibbles ( which I have no... More

We very nearly missed this place. On our second afternoon we were heading towards the river down Obispo and had we taken up the opportunity of grabbing a quick sandwich then we may never have stopped at Nao Paladar. It's right down close to the river and in a sort of back alleyway to the river road. When we passed... More

Only three years old and this paladar is a wonderful addition since my last trip. The menu is varied and interesting and service excellent. They also serve a really good mojito - I'll be back!

We were taken here as part of our city tour. I wish I had gone back on our own. The menu was diverse and interesting, the service excellent and the food delightful. Of course it is a tad more expensive but it is privately owned as opposed to most of the routine places we eat in.
