We were recommended this Paladar by friends who have been previously and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent as was the service and the views from the roof were brilliant. It is a hidden gem that is well worth a visit. Superb.

We could only get a lunch reservation as they were booked up for dinner for the duration of our stay in Havana. So do try to book asap! The food, drinks are staff are all lovely here. It is a more expensive than other places, but the food and location are worth it. We had marlin tacos, which were so... More

We had a great meal here. Probably the best food we had in Cuba. A good choice and well presented. The venue is unique and worth a visit just to see it. Don't miss the roof top bar. I found it by chance. I was being nosey and went up some spiral staircases where I discovered it. If you go... More

La Guarida is one of the most famous restaurants in Havana. Tons of jet seter´s celebrities, rock stars used to go there while in Havana. So I think you should go too. And just not because the celebrities. The restaurant is a jewelry "lost" a few kilometers from the historic district. Once there you can expect the waiter speak your... More

We enjoyed a lovely lunch here as it was booked out for dinner. Gorgeous sea-food and excellent ambiance and service. You felt like you where in NY city not in Havana!

Wow, who would have imagined a hip, vibrant restaurant in old Havana! Awesome rooftop bar and two levels of magnificent dining. Not the traditional Havana, haute cuisine is alive and kicking! We tried a variety of appetizers as a tapas style meal and enjoyed each one better than the last. This place is not to be missed.
