The food here was fantastic and one of my favorites in Havana. We took a taxi from Old Havana and drove along the Malecon at night which was beautiful. The restaurant itself is in a gorgeous house and everyone was very friendly. The octopus is a must!! We had dinner here so while we weren't able to enjoy the ocean... More

Yes, taking a taxi from Old Havana, Vistamar is about 20 minutes away. It is excellent that you think it is worth the trip, we are glad that you have enjoyed your experience. Come back if you get the chance! More

We are here for a group dinner party. The food is kind of bland, but not too bad. I had the shrimp salad. The mojitos are tasty but not too strong. The views of the ocean are great.

I have to say, expectations are the sole driver of outcomes. I was expecting a lot from this 'Paladar' (from the rave reviews) and hence my review will likely be representative of most that have heard about this place. For starters, this is not your aunt's paladar... perhaps 5-10 years ago, it may have been a quaint little sea side... More

Yes, Paladar Vistamar is a restaurant with a professional staff like many of the private restaurants in Cuba nowadays. The concept of paladar a few years ago, something like you say: your aunt's paladar, is not so common now although it can be found. We hope you have that opportunity and come back! Thanks for your visit! More

A four star review despite committing a cardinal sin in overcooking lobster. The Paladar Vistamar has a beautiful view and a great setting. I had grilled snapper and it was excellent but the lobster my wife had was overcooked and if it wasn't for the fantastic key lime pie dessert it would have been a disappointing meal.

This restaurant is located in one of the top neighborhoods in Havana. There is one restaurant upstairs and one downstairs. We were in the one upstairs on the rooftop… Overlooking the pool and the ocean. The food was excellent. I had a chickpea appetizer which was delicious but enough for two or three people. For my entrée I had lobster... More

We got here after dark for dinner so we didn't see the waves crashing on the beach beyond the restaurant. The wait staff was nice and helpful. The food was ok but not memorable. I don't think while we were on the rest of the trip anyone raved or even talked about this restaurant which says a lot about what... More

Through recommendation we made a quick and easy reservation at Paladar for my friend's birthday. Great seats outside and a great choice of dishes to choose from. We both opted for the ribs and honestly I'm still thinking about it now. The main dish was beautiful, service as expected and they were nice enough to bring out my friend's desert... More

This restaurant came highly recommended to me from a number of people from friends in their 20s to my family in their 60s. From the moment we arrived at Vistamar I knew it was something special. The setting is a private residence on the water west of Old Havana that is completely remodeled. Now it is a a fine open... More
