Excellent local restaurant

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.... read 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.

I have just returned from a wonderful trip in Cuba with my friend from Paris and we were incredibly lucky to meet Johnny, Gio, Julie and the Chef and his wife! The food is amazing, we ate octopus, fish, cuban sausages, delicious lamb and their vegetables are very tasty,... and the staff (especially Johnny, the Bar tender) is wonderful. He... More

Felt a bit of a tourist trap. The drinks 'on the house' turned out not to be. Service was poor but a 10% charge was added and they would not deduct this. On the plus side the food was good but (relatively) expensive.

Good food and nice staff. Good location but unfortunately no outdoor seating. Better reserve a table upstairs.

A really charming little restaurant, with a small upstairs dining area. The food was delicious, and the desserts were terrific too! Our server, Johnny was very helpful and friendly, with a great sense of humour. Definitely recommend eating here!
