Tried the set evening meal on Valentines night at only 25cuc per person for 3 courses plus 3 drinks each. Excellent service and food throughout and the shredded beef was amazing, the chef altered the menu for me as I was looking for beef as opposed to chicken. Recommend this for any occassion

a long drive from Havana but a unique opportunity. One of only 3 places on earth to have this geology. Home of the best tobacco fields in the world. You can even take a boat tour through an underground water way in the caverns. 3.5 hours each way. Long day trip or brilliant 2 day excursion

We were staying in Habana Vieja for 11 nights and tried a variety of paladars, we thought this one was good value and had a reasonably good choice as well. The price included a drink, though not a cocktail like other paladars offer, not a biggie though. We both had the mixed platter of ham, cheese and chicken, which was... More

I was handed a leaflet for the special menu at 12cuc a couple of days earlier so decided to try it out with a Cuban friend. The restaurant was almost too well air-conditioned and we had to move to a table away from the cold air. The special menu choices were fairly limited but more than adequate and portions very...

superfood and service.On a hot day in Havana it's great to eat in airconditioned comfort,trust me!Try the lobster cocktail and the fried shrimp (camarones rebozosos,I think they called them).Prices are good and the drinks are wonderful - and reasonable.

Our last dinner in Havana was here and while the food was good, the group of 19 was sat at one big table. Not conducive to anything. Not sure if that was our guide or the restaurant.
