A family-owned authentic Cuban restaurant in the heart of Havana, boasting natural and organic cuisine in a relaxed, artistic, outdoor atmosphere. Descripcion Paladar El Cimarron ( Well known under the Name Juana la Cubana ), a family-owned Cuban restaurant in the heart of Havana, Cuba, is quite possibly the first and only restaurant in Cuba using all natural and mostly organic ingredients! We do our very best to source organic proteins and produce, and we prepare each dish with natural ingredients rather than loads of processed spices. We also boast some of the best cocktails in Havana - so if you think all mojitos are created equal we're sure you won't think so any longer after having tried ours! Each guest is important to us and we aim to ensure you will have a fantastic dining and personal experience each time you visit us. We also have Rooms for Rent in a very lovely warm and artistic Cuban Family House ( Casa Particular) Where you can not only sleep and have your Privacy , but also, enjoy from the Cuban Art in different Horizons , Music, Painting, dancing Plastic Art ... Among Cubans . You are welcome to Cuba and to us. We are also happy to help and give you different Tips and tell you about the Story...
