Reviewed 5 May 2022 via mobile

Went here after it was highly recommend on tripadvisor and our lonely planet book about Havana, but wasn’t as good as I hoped. Cool way to enter up, up a lift to the fifth floor. Tip: get out the lift quickly because if someone else...calls the lift, it will immediately go back down! Service was good, but not enough choice for vegetarians. We asked the waitress and she spoke to the chef who offered a few specially made dishes. We opted for the vegetable lasagna which was ok, but lacked pasta, so felt more like a parmigiana. We did ask for some bread to go with it but I finished before it arrived, so we cancelled it. Toilets here were clean, with toilet paper, soap and a lock!More

Both our Lonely Planet book and our hotel highly recommended this restaurant, but we found it average. The service was good, and the decor was interesting (it's on the pent floor of an apartment building), but the food was average. Not bad, just doesn't match...the reputation we were led to believe, nor does it justify the price they charge (high by Cuban standard). I'm not saying it's bad, but I wouldn't go out of my way to eat there.More

Yes, we’ve only been here 3 days but this Paladar has served us the best meal we have eaten in Cuba so far. Service was excellent and our waitress had English skills that far surpassed our Spanish! The food was tasty and well prepared. The...restaurant was spotless and attractive. We turned up without a reservation but were welcomed with a smile. I would definitely recommend this place..More

We came here on our first night in Havana, around 9pm on a Saturday night. Our group of four sat outside. Almost all the other tables were filled with what appeared to be tour groups. Our server was friendly and attentive. We started with mojitos...(THE BEST), the octopus appetizer is delicious. The shrimp in the grilled mixed seafood entree had an off texture. We all agreed that we would return for mojitos and the octopus.More

This restaurant was recommended by our guide when going to see the show at the National (a few block away). Nice atmosphere, and very accommodating to a larger group. Overall more pricey than some of the places we dined in Cuba, and seemed to serve...more of a tourist niche. Appetizers were probably the weakest of the choices, and the plantain stuffed with cheese and ham was completely overcooked to the point of being inedible. Similarly the bruschetta was not standout. We enjoyed the mains -- I had the swordfish with a green sauce. While it could have used more spice, it tasted good. The grilled veggies (a separate cost) were bland. My husband had the pork, and enjoyed it. Desserts were nothing special. Atmosphere was probably the strongest point, lovely dining room and views.More

It would take you an hour an a half to eat depending on how many you are and probably 10 minutes to walk to Parisien cabaret.
