A local suggested we try Bar NAO. What an awesome place. The restaurant does offer air conditioning inside. We decided to sit outside to soak up the ambiance and locals. There was shade so it didn't seem that hot. As americans we have to realize not everyone is in a hurry like us. With that said the service was a... More

One of the best meals in Cuba. So good that we returned before the end of our trip. Mojitos were the best, included bitters, and not too sweet. I had the ropa vieja. The rice and beans were served properly and traditionally - separate. The guest should combine the rice and beans to the desired consistency and NAO did it... More

We have had a beautiful experience in this paladar restaurant, enjoying a delicious meal while listening Buena Vista Social Club played by a live band just in front of us! Amazing!

Squeezed us in. Waiter spoke excellent English and knew the menu well. Unfortunately, they turned off the fans at the request of one table so it got vety ht inside. Food was very good and generous proportions. Oxtail was cooked well. Nice fish as well. Would happily try again.

Everyone enjoyed their meals. Rice and beans for the table were excellent! I recommend the Cuban rice with fried egg. Ask for their home made hot sauce mmmmm.

Seated outside and enjoyed the fabulous band! The service was very good. We enjoyed a seafood paella, was a little too salty but overall lots of seafood. Mojito was great! Perfect spot to unwind after walking Obispo.

This paladar is located at the very end of the Obispo, which is a perfect escape from the noise of Habana Vieja. We visited two time (once for drinks and a second time for diner) and left both times very happy. Best ropa vieja we had in Cuba. Service was just ok, but the music was very good during both...

After a frustrating day using Public transport and getting totally lost it was nice to unwind . The sea food soup was excellent and catch of the day really good , should probably have not got the fries for 3 CUC that were the only poor value part of the meal.

My husband & I visited for dinner in March 2017. We sat upstairs in the loft and it was quiet and private. The prices are decent. We ordered the Cuban ceviche- not my fave & I looove ceviche. But my dinner was phenomenal- the camarones a la crema. It was so delicious that we came back the next night for... More
