We stumbled across this restaurant by accident as we couldn't find a restaurant the hotel had reserved us (!) so after asking a security guard he pointed us in this direction. We managed to get a table on the balcony without reserving, but it was a busy evening so probably recommend doing so. The food came in a set menu... More

Recommended by tour guide. We sat on the roof overlooking the harbour entrance with one of the most amazing castle walls I have ever seen on the opposite side. The food was excellent, I had Lobster which was perfect. The restaurant has a foundation which takes street kids and trains them so that they can move on and get jobs,... More

The food here was average and was expensive for what it was. The service and family that run the place are great, but the food is not. If you are looking for somewhere in Old Habana that is convenient and has A/C this may be your place, but otherwise, look elsewhere.

I really did not find this place special. I thinks there should be others better for the same Price.

The food was really good! We ordered Lobster which was delicious and it was served with potatoes and greens. We had a puréed soup that was slightly sweet and tasted like cream of pumpkin. We had flan for dessert and ordered Cuban beer and Mohitos. I would recommend this Paladar. The flight of steps is steep and thus less are... More

This is a great place which is easily missed - tucked into a line of houses, the first thing you see is a steep stair case which eventually leads to a roof terrace offering a cool breeze and a view across the roof tops of Havana. We enjoyed an excellent fish dish, the portions were generous (not enough space for... More

I loved the rooftop dining view, but not much else. The food was bland and the service was not very friendly. Efficient, yes, friendly, no. It was filled with tourist and lacked any specific character. There was a singer serenading us with his guitar and he sounded great, but I wished we came just for drinks and ate elsewhere. The...

After 12 days touring in Cuba I came to conclusion that all the food at the best [aladars was the same -- over cooked and bland. So if you want something special you need to seek out paladars with unique ambiance and views. La Moneda came at the recommendation of our private tour guide for the roof top view and... More

Climbing up the the second floor could be challenging for some, but the service was good and the food interesting. Lots of decorations in he restaurant and good espresso.
