This paladar is recommended by our "Cuba... like a local" Michelin guidebook.
My husband and I ate lunch here and really enjoyed it. Yes, the paladar is very small but it is clean and the food was great. We shared one order of the fried chicken but it was more than sufficient for the both of us and it was delicious. It came with the usual salad and rice and beans which we found to be fresh so no problems there.
The service was a bit patchy but very friendly and we would definitely eat here again if we are in Havana in the future.
