“Great for a romantic dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2013

Located right on the water this was a very nice romantic location for our anniversary. The food was quite good and the decor was modern and well appointed. The cuisine in Cuba is improving and this Paladar is an example of the variety and creativity that is emerging there. Our meal was very good - octopus in a basil pesto that was awesome. Grilled veggies that were also good (a great variety as well, something you do get often in Cuba). I would recommend this restaurant and advise that you make a reservation as it is small restaurant. Not located in central Havana either. About a 15 minute drive from Old Havana.

“Best place for a nice dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013 via mobile

Vistamar is a very nice place for a nice dinner. The best place I've eaten in Cuba so far. The food is extremely good and the people are very friendly and polite. It's situated an the topfloor of a villa with a nice view over the ocean, it's not very big so you have to make a reservation in advance.
The prices are a bit higher, but its definately worth it and above all you dont have to check the bill for "mistakes" like in the rest of Cuba! They are honest here!

“A wonderful place!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

This is a beautiful, small restaurant in a very nice area of Havana. The service is excellent and was on of those most enjoyable meals of our trip to Cuba. We had the fish and the taste was wonderful! The cost was about $25 CUC each which is a little pricey for Havana, but not considering the great service and ambiance of the restaurant. This definitely should be on your "must eat at" list if you are going to Havana

“Fabulous food and setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

Lovely food and good choice. Sunset view good too. One of the best paradors around. Next door left is a building site but not the fault of the owners. Live guitar serenade on night we visited. Inside a/c but balcony is cool enough to sit outside and watch sea hitting edge of the pool.
