“Excellent ambience, great food”
Reviewed October 3, 2011

This "paladar" restaurant in the residential outskirts of Havana is a hidden gem where you can have great food, a perfect, quiet and relaxed dinner by the pool. Furnished with hand crafted tables and chairs in iron and ceramic tiles, surrounded and complemented by matching ceramic crafts.
The food, out of the ordinary, is the quality gourmet kind of food you don't expect to find in this country, from staple dishes like a chateaubriand steak to extravaganza Japanese Tuna Tataki.

“Worth the trip; especially if you are a carnivore: excellent steak!”
Reviewed June 20, 2011

This paladar (La Campana 'chill out bar & grill') is not known to many people but it's worth the drive if you're looking for something different. It's in La Lisa, one block from "El Pedregal". It has an almost rural, easy going atmosphere. When we came with a group of 8 friends, we first had a mojito next to the swimming pool (kids splashing and having fun!) while they prepared our table on the terrace. You can also choose to sit inside in a separate room with air conditioning.
We had a selection of starters; especially the octopus carpaccio and the Serrano ham, served on French bread was good. I can't recommend the sushi, the cream cheese (?) inside the roll was a big mistake. One friend chose the Chateaubriand (20CUC) as a entrée and it was the best steak he ever had in Havana! The tuna is also highly recommended. The others had fish or pork which was average to good. Service was attentive. With some glasses of wine the bill came to 25 CUC per person.
