We stumbled across this restaurant as we passed by, looked in and saw the beautiful setting. It didn't disappoint, good food, good service, nice music which was low-key and meant you could still talk (not always the case!). Certainly the setting was splendid.

Very pretty and charming inside with an interesting layout. There were several long and small tables occupying every inch in this restaurant. The table cloths were white and crisp; the dishes and glasses sparkling clean. The decor was almost Victorian. Just beautiful. Water was served in small bottles. A welcome drink consisted of fresh fruit juice with chunks of papaya,... More

This place had fine 18th-century china, grandfather clocks, and even an antique bed! Sol Ananda, on first impressions, seemed more like a museum than restaurant! It was recommended to me by a travel company called ViaHero, and I'm glad I found it. It's in one of the town’s oldest houses, and had a mix of global food from traditional Cuban... More

Slightly strange setting with a bed etc in the dining room (all antique of course) but very good food with efficient and friendly service with as smile. We really enjoyed it. Its not for those on a tight backpacking budget, but neither was it overpriced for what was on offer. Delicious food and definitely different from the usual fare and... More

Sol Ananda was a great surprise after having gotten food poisoning at Guitarra Mia the night before. We walked right into Sol Ananda around 930-10PM and shared a main course fritter dish with pork and South Asian/Caribbean flavors. I was nothing but floored at the spice medley after a few days of typical Cuban food. It was very good. Service... More

Your table can be either in the entrance, the main room, or one of the bedrooms.... Nicely decorated, great service and good food.

Once a private home now a lovingly restored charming restaurant with live music, good food and wine. A real Cuban experience.

This paladar is a restored mansion from better times in Cuba and it is fabulous. We were seated at a long table and the settings were beautiful. Throughout the restaurant were chandeliers that rivaled any we had ever seen...simply exquisite. The head waiter had a lively character and told us the history of the colonial mansion and its renovation which... More

The interior of this restaurant is beautiful - it's decorated as a house including a bedroom with lovely furniture and soft furnishings so you could be sitting next to an antique double bed. I was really hoping the food would be delicious but unfortunately I didn't find it to be. The vegetable tempura was cucumber and tomato in a soft... More

After two weeks of samey menus Sol Ananda stood out as different the moment I opened the menu. The signature cocktail is delicious and subtle, the house gazpacho with guava juice is superb and the fish was cooked to perfection. Add to that great decor and lovely staff and it easily won the prize for best meal in Cuba. Thankyou
