wonderful find in old havana

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!

This restaurant is located on the 1st floor of a house in the old town. they only have 5 tables and 2-3 on the street. It is located in the alley where there is almost no traffic. They have a small wine list with international wines. The server was very attentive pouring wine when needed. My 8 year old enjoyed... More

I spent two evenings there in February. A Cuban friend of mine took me the first time and we met John and his staff at the bar downstairs. The staff were all friendly, we enjoyed music videos, and lots to drink! I went back a second time and again, wasn't disappointed! It is a must when you are in Old... More

Food is really good and so it is the service - it does not come cheap but if you want to eat PROPER Cuban food which is sophisticated and at the same time home-made...well, this is the place!!!! Live music (3 young and very talented musicians) accompanies the meals, so the atmosphere is relaxed and joyful!!!!!! RECOMMENDED!!!

While coming back from the beach in Trinidad another couple recommended this place. It turned out to be THE best recommendation. Frank the chef and Frank the barkeeper are awesome! They were very welcoming. The food and the cocktails were wonderful (come after 4 pm during the week, then all cocktails are 1,50 CUC ;) ). Definitely a place to... More
