Paladares Havana | La Campana

  The chill-out bar and grill La Campana looks a lot like an upmarket farm (Finca) than anything else. This is a swish ranchón beside a nice pool.

Paladares Havana | La Carboncita

  Not very common in Cuba, this paladar “La Carboncita” is run by an Italian, Walter.

Paladares Havana | Le Chansonnier

Reopened by Hector Higueras in October 2011, Le Chansonnier used to be a French-themed private restaurant cluttered with antiques, an average if not run of the mill place to eat. Its reinvention has left little trace of the old interior of the house, which dates back to 1860. Le Chansonnier is now a haven of […]


Paladares Havana | San Cristobal

Piles of old books are stacked atop beautiful old furniture; black and […]
