We went to "Mi jardin" during a vacation trip on September/2014. This "paladar" was just a few blocks from the hotel we were staying at. The guacamole and fried beans are to die for. All the food served was amazing. The place is very clean and inviting, you can sit in the patio outside or if you choose to stay... More

Three days in Havana and we have been here twice now. Not the easiest of places to find as it really is just ringing the bell on a gate to a house in a residential street. But the family are very welcoming and show you through to a room with tables set up for guests. No outside area as other... More

This lovely restaurant is located in Playa, Havana, only 5 minutes walk from hotel Miramar Occidental. Paladar is a restaurant in a private home, and the food is usually far better than in regular restaurants. Mi Jardin serves delicious Mexican and Cuban dishes, fresh, homemade and tasty! They even have chicken and mole negro (the famous black sauce) on the... More

As a frequent visitor to Havana and one that always stays in the Miramar area Mi Jardin has been a personal favorite for years. It's proximity to the hotel I stay in makes it a perfect place to visit often. It has incredible Mexican food with homemade tortillas and great atmosphere on it's outdoor terrace. Mi Jardin has undergone quite... More

I loved the atmosphere, the food and the guy who served us food. This little restaurant is a paladares so basically you eat in a lovely house. Good price!

This restaurant is actually in a garden, myself and a fellow traveller went here for dinner and what a beautiful place in the evening. FYI this is a cute gem in Havana and it gets busy! the food is good and so are the rum drinks! As with most places in Cuba the service is slightly lacking, however in Cuba... More

My wife and I ate at Mi Jardin on back-to-back nights this past week and absolutely loved it. It's too bad there are so few reviews here, because it had some of the best food in Havana. We tried many different menu items and were pleased with all of them. Truly delicious Mexican cuisine. More importantly, the service and prices... More

We walked from our hotel here, tough to find, no street signs of course saying 66th St, but got direction and found it. As Michelin would say "it it is worth a detour"... A Wednesday lunch, indoors it was full but we were seated in the garden and that is where it is best. We had salsa with nachos to... More

The chicken quesadillas were yummy but the Chicken Jalapeno was without the jalapenos so very bland. Frijoles were good. Waiter was either shy because he spoke no english or uninterested, not sure which.

I went here last month with my wife, We had saw this restaurant in many guide books and thought of giving it a try. Prices seemed reasonable, I found that the food was not really that "authentic" mexican, I have to give it to them they try hard with the mexican menu they have. I personally would not go back,...

Description
Mi Jardin is a Paladar, a Family owned and operated private restaurant. It is featured in Moon Handbooks havana written by Christopher P baker.

I visit Havana often and have eaten at almost all the restos and paladars and this one is in my opinion the absolute best for quality/price.

The menu features both Cuban and Mexican food with homemade tortillas and the best guacamole I have ever eaten.

It deserves to be featured on Tripadvisor so other people can experience it's quality and incredible ambiance.
