“Take care”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012

Salon Tropical is a nice location , a littte far from the center. Food was good, but they changed my order for a bottle of wine and charged the double price for a different bottle without notification to me. So take care and confirm your order twice !

“A good alternative”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2012

This place is an atmospheric alternative for an intimate dinner on the upstairs patio. It is one of a very small number of places worth recommending. They like to take reservations. The food is good, but not quite up to international gourmet standards, probably due to lack of available spices+ ingredients. It found the chicken to be nicely prepared, but still a bit bland and greasy. The staff try hard, but they become overwhelmed when it gets busy and service is slow and unresponsive. Take care when going up and down the outside stairway !

“Average food in Santiago is good food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2012

While our meal didn't stand out, it was one of our best in Santiago: it is really hard to find here something in the standards of Havana's paladares. I had a good pork with tamales, but my husband felt his choice was too heavy. It is a charming place with views and quirky decor, on the top of a house, with good service. Small bill. Bring a light coat as it winds (and it is cooler at night) and forget high expectations at the hotel.

“Bad food & wine!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2011

I had read some nice reviews about this paladar, however, when we visited it was a dissapointment: the shrimps of the cocktail were frozen! (overloaded with sauce). The chicken was more bone than meat. Nice to have the experience of a paladar, it was not expensive, however, I rather pay double for good food than this. Better go to ZinZin.
