Upstairs without much external advertising. Persevere! Pleasant terrace, nice décor. Attentive informative staff. Varied menu. Fresh prawns in the paella. Not overhyped and touristy. VFM.

Very good restaurant in La Habana. We loved the food and the service was also great. Excellent view of Paseo del Prado and also good mojitos. We went there 3 times during our stay in Cuba!

The restaurant is upstairs with a terrace. Blanquita was a merchant marine, traveled all over the world, and her restaurant is filled with treasures.

This paladar was recommended by the casa owner who said she only refers people to places she has actually eaten in. It may be because after the hurricane there were few tourists about. I passed it again on the week end and there were lights...More
