Visited this Paladar which was close to our hotel. Food was only average and service was poor. Not to be recommended.

I'm told that Havana has dozens of tucked-away paladars serving decently prepared home-style dishes. But since this tiny, charming, crowded place down an alley was "discovered" by Anthony Bourdain and subsequently popularized by Lonely Planet, lines are out the door (they also serve at a few tables in the alley) and prices up somewhat, though not extravagantly so. Eating fairly... More

Good food and big portions are offer at Paladar Los Amigos. The menu offers many traditional Cuban dishes at a affordable price. The price is super hype since it has been feature in TV, while is not amazing it sells good food in Cuba.

Our first night in Havana & we went in search of a paladar. We found Los Amigos just down the hill from Cafe Laurent. I enjoyed my third ropa vieja of our trip & my husband was pleasantly surprised by his pork schnitzel. Turns out this is a popular place with the locals. By the time we had finished, there... More

In general, the food around Havana is not the best but this is one restaurant where you will have a good meal. I found this place from a review from Anthony Bourdain. I must admit, every time I visit Havana, I make sure to eat here. The restaurant is small but the prices are right and the service is good.... More

A great little restaurant which we found in Vedado. Positives: Great mojitos, literally Ice cold beer, great tasting good. Negative: On the two occasions we visited, many of the dishes and some of the cocktails were unavailable. Waiter service a bit hit and miss. Recommendations: Ropa Veoja... and their Mojito's. I'd also advise booking a table or getting there early,... More

We tried the ajiaco, and it was delicious. The roast chicken legs were fantastic, as well as the black bean soup. The mojito was nasty, though, and the waiter tried to overcharge us more than 5 cucs.

The restaurant is nothing special, i went there following bourdain's review, however the place has a strange atmosphere (it is quite tiny and it feels packed, the bathroom is disgustingly dirty and the whole place has a really bad smell, the decor is lousy)... the food is way below any other place in the city and personally, me and my...

It s very near to Nacional hotel. Very small place there are 7-8 tables. You have to wait but meals are delicious. Be preapred for air condition. Since very busy place, service s too slow. Tablecloths may not be as clean as expected but you ll be satisfied cause of delicious meals. Dont miss it
