La Paella

Updated 12/31/1969

Fodor's Review

In the Hostal Valencia, this restaurant specializes in paella, just as its name suggests, and has won high praise for its Valencian dishes. House suggestions include grilled Caribbean seafood, Yoruba lobster with béchamel sauce, and buttered shrimp. In keeping with the cuisine, the large, airy dining room has a terra-cotta floor, a rustic feel, and is dressed in traditional Spanish furnishings. A signed image of a notable bullfighters, another of the running of the bulls,

and even a memento to former president Fidel Castro Ruz dating from 1989 adorn the walls here.

Crunchy rice and foul odour

Avoid this restaurant. The rice was uncooked, the seafood was rubbery, and the restaurant had an overpowering musty odour of decay about it. Although good food is hard to come by in Cuba, you can do better than this.
