This is a great paladar located a bit off the beaten track. Like many places in Cuba, there isn't much for signage to find the place. Look for two large planters (with trees in them) infront of the driveway.
The paladar is on a huge piece of ground, not much for parking, but it looks like most people just use the grass. There are several places to sit inside the paladar, plus a large deck in the back that offers several very nice tables and patio style tables. Around the large pool are several loungers as well. Great location for a bit of a relaxation after work and before a great meal.
The food was very good. With all the paladars in Havana it is very difficult to hit them regularly, as I really don't want to end up weighing 300lbs! We went with the Ropa Viaja con arroz. This was very good and I'd highly recommend it. I've had several friends tell me that virtually everything on the menu (which had several choices) is very good.
The service was fast and very friendly.
The only negative thing we could find is that the back of the property does look a little unfinished, with just a chain link fence and grass. This doesn't take away from the great meal, but can lower the ambiance a little bit.

Overall a great paladar. We will be returning!

This paladar was a nice surprise with great food, great price, a very warm and welcoming atmosphere, fun swimming in the pool, and on top of it I was surprised by a really cool event organized by the restaurant. Really worthwhile checking...

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.

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.
