I do not know what some people are looking for. This was the best meal we had in Havana and certainly the best beef on the island. Great antipasti starter and great fillet beef. Superb with service to match. We ate here 3 times.More

The food and service were both excellent. Just around the corner from the Hotel Capri, this roof top paladar was terrific. It's the perfect spot to enjoy the breeze off the water.

It would take you an hour an a half to eat depending on how many you are and probably 10 minutes to walk to Parisien cabaret.

Description
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.
