Paladar "Amor": Paladar: "Amor"-Good food
This second story restaurant in an opulent Vedado colonial mansion is one of Havana's top paledars. Prices are excellent, atmosphere a romantic reminder of times past. Service is friendly but slow, and the food good. Call ahead; when we stopped by in July 2000, it was being renovated.
Favorite Dish: The seafood is good
Paladar "Gringo Viejo": Good Food and Service: Paladars: Gringo Viejo
This paladar offers a good atmosphere and large portions of invariably brilliant food. There is a good menu. It's open from 1-11 p.m. Monday to Saturday. Its walls also show pictures of important people who have dined in this place.
Favorite Dish: Barbecue lobster with hot sauce and salad.
Paladar "La Guarida": Good Food and Service: Paladars: La Guarida
The film "Fresa y Chocolate" was partly shot at this place. Now is a trendy restaurant, although still inexpensive (the specialty of the house is "cherna caimanero" or red snapper. The house walls show many Hollywood stars who have dined here, including Jack Nicholson. It's open 7:00 p.m. to midnight; reservations are recommended.
Favorite Dish: I like everything they cook. My favority dish is barbecue fish with salad and wine.
Beside the traditional...
Beside the traditional restaurants, you may find the so-called 'paladar'. These are privately managed by common people in their own houses, it's difficult to say which are the best as theyare continuosly changing due to the severe restriction sthe Governement imposes (very high taxes, for examples).
Many of them are situated n the Vedado area, where nice villas of past times may be found overwhelemed by the trees and shrubs.
One of my favorite restaurants...
One of my favorite restaurants (Paladars) in Havana is
I´ve been there, this place rocks people!!!
The service is ***** stars, and the food is great!!!!
The prices are just fine, but the best thing there is the Saloon keeper, Fanck. This guy is cool!!
Just jump by!!!
Never listen to the touts in the streets, they´ll tell you the place is closed or expensive because Huron Azul pays them no commission!!!
SOON I´ll include a map to get there !!
Favorite Dish: Pescado Bashangay! (Fish Bachangay!)
Pollo Bombay con Kur! (Chicken Bombay with Kur!)
People, you have to try this!!!!
Paladeros are small 'restaurants' that locals open in their own house. They're cheap, have a limited menu, but definitely give you the local flavor.
Favorite Dish: The fresh fish was always very good.
