This was our first experience with a paladar in Cuba.
Is located right in front of the Capitol building; is on the 1st floor; to the left.
The restaurant looks nice; the service was great and so was the sangria.
Order chicken or fish; the meats in Cuba are not the best quality and don't taste as fresh.
This place was recommended by our taxi driver; you will find locals and tourist.
I remember the yuca was really good and so was the sangria.
They tend to charge for everything in Cuba; the bread; water including a to go box.
I would recommended;out of the Paladares it was one of the least expensive and the food was good.
We realized after a week in Cuba that they are not the quickest or the best at service.
This place had good service and it was one of the quickest on getting our food out.
**FYI: If you are looking to save money; you can find out about Paladares paid in PESOS. **
Example: We had a meal including of a Ham spagetti, a personal ham pizza and a side of rice and beans with waters for the total price of $1.35 CUC compare to $4 to 5 CUC per plate

We found this great restaurant via Trip Advisor and were really impressed with what we found, when we approached the building it did look run down outside however once you go up the stairs you find a really nice restuarant with a huge menu that is very cheap.

Staff were really helpful as we dont speak the language and we werent disappointed with the food, everything was gigantic in size and you can easily get a meal for two with drinks for 15 CUC's.

It is a little dark dependant on where you sit and you may have to wait a a short while for a table.

Very dark with many local diners. Huge portions at very reasonable prices. But the house sangria is blah and very pricey.

It only three years, for this restaurant to change its ways. From good to worse. Why is it that three people will get served their meals only after one of them have finished theirs (one person at a time). Plus they charge you $2.CUC for water that you did not order. Then when they bring you the bill, they state that they forgot to add the 10% commission, then when you spot it on the bill they say that is for the taxes, and that their boss keeps the 10% and I should tip more.
Fortunately still good food, but now the service is totally unsatisfactory and no longer worth the visit.

We ate there several times four years ago. We went back in February 2014 and it was packed as usual but the food and service are not the same.
