Our restaurant is located in the center of OLD HAVANA in a beautifully renovated colonial house built circa 1890. It has 2 salons, each with unique decorations, fabulous furnishings and signature tiles. There are also frescos from 1905 on all of the walls which brings an added facet to the style of the restaurant. Our beautiful interior hanging garden adds an enticing and pleasant ambience to your dining experience. Please join our family restaurant and enjoy fabulous Cuban food plus some international food , friendly service, great beverages and all the best of old Havana.
Everything about this restaurant is perfect. The waiter even offered us cigars on the house to pair with a rhum he recommended. While we were smoking said cigars, the owner came by and enquired about our experience and chatted with us for a while about...what they have been trying to do and the history of the house the restaurant is in and so much more.
We felt like celebrities.
One of the best meals I've had in my life.More
Beautiful space, wonderful staff and the food was delicious. The best food we had durning our one week stay in Havana. I am vegetarian and they had plenty of delicious veggie options! Price points were very reasonable. The owner and staff are lovely! Thanks for...a great night!More
The food was delicious ,authentic and beautifully presented It was served by charming helpful staff.Gorgeous old building spotlessly clean We ate on the balcony with a view of the bustling street below .
The best food we had in Havana. We visited La Guarida too, this pace was better. Great location in old town, lovely building too and great value - nothing was expensive here, but quality was excellent.
This is by far the best food I have had in Havana. I was blown by the quality and taste of the food in this restaurant. Friendly staff, very professional and knowledgeable. You will find the prices are higher than your normal restaurant in cuba...but is worth every penny. I can say this is as close as it gets to gourmet food in cuba.
The boniato and lasagna appetizer are really good. The layered pastry and créeme brûlée deserts are to die for.
You can expect great quality and flavor from any dish you get here. Highly recommend it!More
We spent 10 days in Havana, and Paladar Los Mercaderes was by far the best restaurant we ate at. We learned of it when we Googled for the best restaurants in Havana. It was so good, that we ate there twice. Everything about this restaurant...is superior. The prices are really resonable, too. Dinner for two with drinks and an appetizer, and tip will run you less than $60. Of course, you could buy a pizza on the street for $1, but if you are looking for great food, great service, and tasteful live music playing in the background, go to Paladar Los Mercaderes. I promise you won't regret it. Next trip to Havana, Yamil, we'll come to eat at your restaurant.More

This restaurant hit the spot! The Italian food was exceptional. Our group had the eggplant lasagna and crabmeat ravioli. We also ordered some bread which seemed more French than Italian, but came warm and was all eaten. The service was great. We also has some...local music. Highly recommend!More
