We visited the Atelieer after reading about it in the New York Times. Even though we had a reservation for 4, there were 3 large groups of over 10 people and no mention that service would be slow by the staff. I had a Churaassco, and it was very tough. The portions were large, but I felt that there needed to be more to go with them to justify the price. We did not order any dessert, as we were there for almost 2 hours having drinks and a main course

Just a few blocks from the Melia Cohiba Hotel in Havana, Atelier is worth visiting. The food is excellent, and ambience charming. Our best meal in Havana included the lobster, lamb entrees. Lovely home decorated in a contemporary style. Dinner for 4ppl ordering lots of food, drinks and desert was about $100CUC

If you have time to eat in only one restaurant in Havana, try this. You will probably have trouble finding it: it's a quiet, residential street. But it's worth it: the meals are exquisite and you don't have the touristy feel of other restaurants

Situated in the penthouse of a 5 story Vedado apartment building, this restaurant is filled with wonderful contemporary art. Other diners mainly European. All the wonderful Cuban appetizers cooked to perfection - croquettas, frituras, ceviche. All entrees were cooked to order and the choice was staggering - several varieties of fish, rabbit, lamb, steak, chicken.
Very cosmopolitan atmosphere. One of my two best meals in Havanan - other being Paladar Laurent.
Atelier is in Vedado, Calle 5, e/Paseo y 2. #511. Phone is 83602025.

The most upscale private restaurant of three we visited in Havana. Spacious indoor dining area plus additional seating on outside rooftop patio. Decor is art by owner. One large painting of a woman lying on her back with her legs spread that was hung behind my wife's head was somewhat distracting as I ate my rabbit. Very attentive, efficient and sophisticated service. Located in a former residence in Vedado. Guard at front gate will get you a cab.
