Wonderful fun place great service great decorations. Food was just average. Seems they may be trying to hard. But worth it. For a group of 15 you can get a set menu for about $35

I would recommend this Paladar to anyone traveling to Cuba that would like a taste of the city. The prices are good, the food is good, the staff was very friendly, and the cigars after the meal were fantastic! Great ambiance.

Very interesting place in old Havana. Old world European service and wonderful food. Little or no AC in June is a little uncomfortable and they never stopped telling us Obama ate there!

Despite a booking reservation for 930pm, we needed to wait over an hour to be seated. This was despite tables being available. The food was excessively salty, plain and dry. We had ordered the lobster, lamb and fish and this was descriptive of each meal....More
