Doña Blanquita is close proximity to our rented casa. We went here past 7pm and looking forward to seat close to the balcony but we were told that they had a big group coming in shortly who had a reservation. However, that did not dampen our experience in anyway, as we really enjoyed our simple yet tasty meal here. My... More

Nothing special but we had a decent dinner at this paladar. A good sized portion of ropa vieja was CUC15, a national beer CUC1.75 so prices probably reasonable for its location on Prado. Service was pleasant but not exceptional.

We were randomly walking and found this place for lunch. Decent food and average prices. It seems to be that seafood is always every restaurants special but we didn't have that. Nice if you got a balcony seat to see outside on the street which we did. Nothing special here but food wasn't bad and worth going if you are... More

Great place to eat nice cuban food and nice prices. We hate at the balcony and it was great, great views to Paseo de Marti, the main avenue of the city.

The average food might not have mattered if we were not upstairs in a room with no windows and accessed by a very narrow spiral staircase.

This place was incredible. Even though they have an extensive menu, we stuck with the basics. Ropa Vieja, Yuca al Mojo and Platano en Tentacion. I was with two colleagues from Mexico and they just loved the Yuca and plantains. The food here was easily the best meal we had on our whole trip to Havana. Also the location and... More

We went here largely because we could see the balcony from the street and it looked like the perfect location for an early-evening meal. We were lucky in that one of the tables by the road was just being vacated when we arrived. The food was decent enough, although nothing to write home about. We had chicken and rabbit, with... More

Since we were the first to arrive we weren’t even sure that they were open. But, at 1 o’clock in the afternoon we thought, what the heck we’ll take a punt, and, we were truly glad we did. We picked a table on the balcony; within 20 minutes the balcony was full to overflowing and within 40 minutes all of... More

On the Paseo de Marti, where there's a bit of an oasis for other eating choices. Close to several hotels - Sevilla, Telegrafo, Inglaterra.... It's upstairs, with some tables on balcony. Food is good and portions generous. Decoration kitsch and cheerful. Well worth a visit. Good value.

Thank AlistairR111
