Fodor's Review

Enrique Nuñez and his wife, Odeysis, have transformed their early 20th-century town house into a fine paladar. It's so photogenic that scenes in Fresa y Chocolate (Strawberry and Chocolate) were filmed here. The three-floor climb up the squalid but picturesque stairway generates an appetite-enhancing adrenline. The daily special is never what Enrique and Odeysis need to get rid of but rather what they hope will make you happiest. Look for cherna compuesta

a lo caimanero (with coconut and spices) or conejo al aceite de oliva con caponata (cooked in olive oil with a sauce of eggplant, peppers, and onion). On Sunday the restaurant is open only for brunch from noon to 4.

Simply one of the best

We walked the dirty streets of Havana to get here, what an atmosphere once you enter this old building. The food was top notch in this romantic palador. Good value at 72 dollars for two including starters, maincourse, aperitif and a bottle of decent wine. A must for your Havana visit, beats all the other ones!
