Such a lovely place to have dinner in Havana... in a quiet, beautiful garden of a colonial style house in Almendares. About a 15 min drive from Havana Vieja/Centro, but don't let that put you off. Went for dinner with a friend and we were warmly greeted at the gate and were brought into the house to meet Lilliam's husband... More

Went for dinner with friends and family. The place is beautiful and the food is very well prepared, there was a gentleman playing the piano wish added to the ambiance. My only complain is that 3 of us ordered a fish dish and to our surprise as part of the decoration of the plate you get a really small ball... More

This was the most beautiful place to dine and the food was fantastic! We were served by a most knowledgable young waiter who was always polite and knew exactly what we needed. The homemade bread was a real treat! Seafood here is top of the list!

In a garden setting, we enjoyed homemade bread and fish filets with congri rice (which is essentially rice and beans.) It was incredibly tasty and a very good value. The service was attentive and I would return here in a heartbeat.

Beautiful place, great food! Family owed business in a very nice environment. Full of plants and very quiet. The only sound you hear is a relaxing piano music. Food is fresh and tasty. I fully recommend it... And please, try the basil Ice cream! It is the most refreshing ice cream ever!

My wife and I have visited La Cocina de Lilliam on multiple occasions and their food and service is consistently excellent. The garden setting is very beautiful. We invited some friends to join us and they were very impressed with the food, La Cocina de Lilliam provides a very typical Cuban food. We highly recommend this paladar

My boyfriend and I both had the lightly breaded snapper and grilled snapper which were both EXCELLENT (as was everything else)! I would recommend the malangas (which is similar to a sweet potato but native to Cuba) and the tortilla española which were both just wonderful starters. The service was also impeccable! Our server was so kind and helpful and... More
