This paladar was recommended by the casa owner who said she only refers people to places she has actually eaten in. It may be because after the hurricane there were few tourists about. I passed it again on the week end and there were lights...More

We wanted to try an authentic paladar restaurant allowed in Cuban homes since 1996 by the communist government. This one is located along the popular central promenade walking area, and we decided to give it a try. You enter on the street and climb stairs,...More

A balcony over the prado with plants on it makes a great atmosphere to eat and drink. They got all the typical cuba food, and it is really tasty! I as a vegetarian was happy too :) They also got cheap but good drinks!

Very friendly staff. Best Cordon Bleu I've ever had. My boyfriend enjoyed his meal too. Maybe a little pricey but I had no problem paying that price.

Was brought here by my AirBnB owner. Decent place with a nice balcony view. I noticed that the prices were almost doubled of what I paid at higher rated establishments (and the food wasn't as good here). Would rather have gone somewhere else.
