This paladar was recommended to us by our casa particular and we were happy we tried it out. A cute, small place, with a charming atmosphere and a great live band for background music.

Food in Dona Nora was delicious, was fresh and home-made. Prices are ok and the portions are huge (4-7 CUC)Once we stayed there, there was a little show... More
