A different experience (for us). Do not be too hungry when you go there. Cozy and good food. Right near the old square in Havana. We got the last available table (out of 4 possible) when we got there and it felt like we were sitting at home with the family, in a positive way. None had received their food... More

We had a very good time in La Mulata del Sabor. I really enjoyed the environment with walls full of pictures, very close from the plaza vieja! We had a pollo mulata and a Cuba libre coctail which were very tasty. Furthermore, I learnt the first steps of salsa! I recommande! :)

We enjoyed visiting this restaurant just off Plaza Vieja. The hostess was very friendly and chatty. The chicken was great. The atmosphere and decor was how I imagined Cuba would be - really fun! I would definitely go!

We enjoyed our stay at this sweet little paladar very much. We have been lucky to meet Doña Justina herself and she startet to entertain us while we have been waiting for our food what was excellent. Her pollo (chicken), what's the specialty of the house, was very tasty. Should we ever go back to La Habana, for sure we... More

If you share a desire to really connect with locals while in Cuba, please do not miss this restaurant. The proprietress, Hefa Justina, is a complete embodiment of the warmth and spirit of the Cuban people. Those who do not speak Spanish will get a warm embrace, a tasty meal, and a home-style experience. For those who do speak Spanish... More

I had the fried chicken and ate every scap. The food was well seasoned and very tasty. It came with lots of sides, but the portions did not seem over-zealous like other places, which I liked. (I hate wasting food, especially in a poor country) We also had some beer and were pleased that they came with frosted cold mugs... More

So happy we decided to come to La Mulata. It's not right on the beaten path, and not in many of the guidebooks, but was so worth it. Gotta get the chicken and mojitos, with enough rum to make you feel good after a couple. Justina, the owner, is also one of the warmest people we met.

After staying for some days at la habana, one local friend brought me to this paladar. Though we had to wait for the food, it was worth it, for the price the food was great, I asked for chicken and it was the best local food I tasted around, we also had a chance to know the owner and chat... More
