We booked a table at this restaurant based on a review in a guide-book and were not disappointed - You access the restaurant via a slightly dingy stairway but you then arrive at a charming small restaurant with a nice balcony where we were fortunate to sit. The food and service were excellent, and it was very cheap, especially given that I had lobster !

Varied menu with good seafood; second floor views of Paseo del Prado. Attentive service and reasonable prices.

Cuban food has often been accused of being bland or tasteless. Those people must have missed Doña Blanquita. Located within walking distance of Parque Central and Museo de la Revolucion, Doña Blanquita offered one of the best culinary experiences I had in Cuba.

They offered me a daily special which wasn't on any menu: skewered pork with a generous amount of garlic, salad and rice and beans (moros y cristianos). The food was excellent. Lots of flavour, plenty of spice without it being too hot. The price was very good considering the excellent quality.

The restaurant is located upstairs, so it's most likely not wheelchair accessible.

I'd definitely go back here again.

If you want to see a traditional paladar this is a place to visit. The food was home made, huge portions. Make sure you book a table on the balcony, so you can enjoy the lovely view over Paseo de Marti. Although the food was average it was quite interesting experience.
