We had to book to get a table at this paladar (just off the Plaza Viejo) and we were so pleased we did. The staff were very friendly and were were seated just inside the door.

We had their 'shredded lamb' special (with a bottle of red wine) which was delicious! It's not surprising that these guys get such great reviews. Equally good is Ivan chefs Justo which I have reviewed separately.

Gone are the days of people saying you cannot eat good food in Cuba. Would go back in a heartbeat.

We actually went here twice lunch without reservations and were found a table inside on both occasions even though they were very busy. The staff are very friendly, the prawns were wonderful and the mojito frappes- well, what can I say- totally yummy. We were also given rum on the house to go with our after lunch coffees. A great experience. Thoroughly recommend.

Lovely setting, excellent location in Old Havana and good service and good Cuban food. It gets really busy, so make sure you book.

We turned up on spec for lunch, without a reservation and managed to get the last table outside. We were hesitant to take this table as we really wanted to be inside to appreciate the charm of this paladar. However we were delighted that we chose to stay and enjoy the food here and very fortunate as we watched many people being turned away as they did not have a reservation.

First of all, let me say how charming and helpful our waiter was - extremely professional and spoke excellent English. We had the lobster salad and the octopus with garlic - both were exceptionally good. We then had the Ropa Veija (shredded beef) and the roast chicken Dona Eutimia style. These were served with rice and cumin spiced beans. All very tasty and nicely presented. Our total meal with 2 beers and a glass of wine came to 26 CUC, which we thought was very good value.

Can add very little to the superlative reviews by the other diners at this paladar. The prices were right, the food was excellent, the mojitos frappes (yes, plural) were addictive and the atmosphere was delightful. Art on the walls and the numbered menus were an amazing touch. While the staff is welcoming to all the clients, there is a sense that gay guests are particularly welcome. Make sure you reserve.
