Excellent food experience, considering we are in Cuba , It is becoming much better ,one of my guests found the rice a little too dry , they were quick to replace it , and it came back perfect . Wine list should have more variety of wines ,especially French wines . Other than that .. perfect evening

Very close to Nacional Hotel and worth the two block walk. One of the best Paladar's I've been too, during many visits to Cuba. On top of a small apartment building with rooftop views. English was widely spoken and the menu was bilingual. Food was very good for Cuba, and very well presented. Lots of excellent seafood choices. I will... More

this Paladar is in a easy to get to location and has a great view of the area as it sits atop an apartment building. The food was good. Not my favorite, but the service was very good and they did well with a room full of Americans.

I was on a walking tour with a big group of my friends and accidentally found this place. From the street the 5th floor corner looked too fancy and we decided to explore. When I saw the restaurant and the view, I fell in love with this place! You can see the perfect view of the ocean and the city... More

This Paladar is on the fifth floor of an apartment building. We walked up even though there is an elevator because in Cuba you never know when the power will go out, doing so made us realize how sexy this is. Normal people live in this unassuming but nicely restored building, but as you walk up past floor four you... More

Having spent quite some time working out where to eat during our time in Havana this was on the list due to its proximity to The Nacional and good ratings. I visited with my wife and 2 of our friends. On our first night we just ventured out having not made a reservation. First lesson is – make a reservation... More

The Laurent is a fabulous 1950s roof top venue nestled in a residential area overlooking in part a busy crossroad where some issues with who has right of way generate the occasional outburst from drivers. Located on an incline also provided ample opportunity for drivers of the Lada to get out and push! The lift to the 4th floor could... More

We visited Cafe Laurent 3 times during our 6 days in Havana. The service is excellent and the waitress made sure to ask us if we had any allergies (we don't). The food is really good and I liked my daiquiri frappe so much that I drank it quickly and suffered from brain freeze. Reserve if you want to get... More

Walking the Obispo street of Havana Cuba a handsome man approached me with plastic menu in hand. Pointing to the roof top above he explained he and his family own the restaurant now possible due to private enterprise being opened up to the Cuban people. I was pleasantly surprised at this little gem nestled in the heart of the tourist... More

Brand new restaurant , opened in February 2011. We were one of it's first customers. A 'Palador 'style restaurant located in a penthouse apartment of an of classic 1950's building; with magnificent views over the city and of the ocean. interior decor is modern1950's cool, creative, and artfully appointed. the food was excellent!!! One could could compare easily to a fine restaurant in Paris, NY or London. staff are young and attentive and gave great service.
