What a lovely place in Havana. The location is 25 minutes away from Old Havana but it is worth the trip. Great cuban food, great atmosphere, excellent service at very reasonnable price. Not to be missed when you go to Havana.

Beautiful atmosphere in the garden of the Cocina de Lilliam perfectly accompained by guitar music. Amazing for romantic dinners. Good food, I love the pescado en papillote, the lamb, the puree de boniato and the garbanzos fritos - if you can get one, what leads us to the downsides of this place. Often only 50% of the menue is available, I tried to order the garbanzos ten times and got it once, but theese where finally the best in whole Havana. Besides of this the service is ridicously unprofessional.

This site used to be good, but deteriorated tremendously. No money back after you pay (just empty box) without giving any explanation. And worst of the worst (especially these days) they bring opened bottles of water, as for instance sparkling water. I do not recommend to anyone. Long ago was one of the best places, I will enter never ever.

This is a really nice paladar. firstly because it has some of the best food in Havana, secondly because the service is on point and lastly because the decor really enhances the dining experience. it is in Miramar, which is a little out of the central havana area but in my view, well worth a visit. there is always a guitar soloist offering lovely background music.
the opening hours are different - they close completely between lunch and dinner, wtih the latter being served from 7pm onwards. also I went there one night and they were closed - it is worthwhile to call ahead and ensure they are open.

The decor here was amazing. You can spend lots of time just admiring the decor. Fountains, lots of plants and just a relaxing place to be. The hours are a bit odd, noon until 3pm and 7pm until later.. Plus closed on sundays/mondays. The food is generally pretty good, but like many paladars they have good days and bad days.
