One of the best meals we had in Cuba. It was very simple but tasty. Portions were quite large and it was very inexpensive. We sat outside in the shade. The service was excellent. We felt like we were eating at someone's house and not at a restaurant.

It was hard to find but very worth it. We had the grilled fish ($6) and lobster ($10). It came with salad, rice, beans, plantains and a guava cheese dessert. Very casual setting. Great service. Outdoor seating. A MUST if you are in Havana. - It is on corner of 21st & 14th Street in Vedado

We stopped by for a cold drink on a particularly hot day, and I'm so glad we did! We ended up staying for the afternoon and I did a cooking lesson with the chef and we then both ate there for dinner. The food is traditional and tasty and it's such a friendly place! The staff were very accommodating (particularly... More

This paladar is a very nice decorated location where you get a beautiful and cozy atmosphere. You can listen to the latest salsa hits while drinking a delicious mojito or cuba libre. They serve tasty traditional food and there'll be for all tastes. The owner are warm and heartly people. If you're visiting havanna you need to go to visit... More

A word of warning, the map on trip advisor puts its location in completely the wrong place, it's out to the west of the large graveyard (see photo) This place is in a quiet suburb out to the west of revolution square and is absolutely worth the trip out. The food is simple but very tasty and incredibly cheap. Nothing... More

Let's go strait to the point: This restaurant is absolutely not worth to go. We had some expectations given the number of good reviews, but we were very disappointed. I don't complain much in general but I need to warn future customers. First of all the service: We ordered at 8:30pm, the food was served at around 10pm... It shows... More

Wonderful restaurant owned by a very friendly family . Every second day I have had a dinner there while my 3 week stay in Havana....Menu is just incredible but be sure to come really hungry as the portions are pretty big. One thing I never could resist were the fresh fruit surprise cocktails to which bartender always added a bit... More

I have been to Cuba as a tour leader 11 times during the last year and this is my favorite restaurant in Havana. The setting is in a garden and is just magical, the food is amazing and creative and the owners and staff are lovely and so much fun to spend time with. You really feel like a part... More
