We went to this restaurant to celebrate my friends birthday while visiting Havana Cuba. We expect for the restaurant to be expensive cause of former US President Barak Obama and wife ate at the place. But when we went in, we met the chef who was very nice and welcome us. The servers was very attentive and friendly. They also... More

San Cristóbal paladar was a great place to go and have dinner with good friends. The staff is very welcoming and accommodating. Everyone made sure we were enjoying our time and food there. Will definitely go back there whenever we have a chance to visit Cuba again.

The food was absolutely delicious! ....loved the atmosphere , the waiters were attentive, we got a table right away and the quality of food certainly out weights the cost of our total bill!

This was my friends and my first night's meal in Havana. Definitely make reservations ahead of time as walking in can have a wait. We ordered the appetizer sampler for 4 people. 6 CUCs was a good deal. My favorite was the eggplant ceviche. The free breadsticks are also delicious (we asked for extra)! We decided to do family style... More

This was the highest ranking, hardest table to get into. So disappointed. The food was fine. Nothing creative or that I'd ever want to eat again. What some items lacked in salt, others more than made up for. No surprising flavors. Just pretty mediocre all around. The history of the building was the coolest part. Too bad. Go to Habana... More

The food was amazing but a very long wait. We made reservations for 8.30pm and did not get seated until 9:30pm. The food was very good and worth the wait. The neighbors are also very friendly and you can easily take pictures and speak with them about Cuban life.

Only one good dish was wild pork. Nice tasty sauce with a truffle mashed taro. We also got the San cristobal fish which was disappointing since the waiter recommended it. Very bland and a lot of garlic which overpowered everything else. We also got the Havana style soup and malecon salad (seafood). Both need more seasoning to boost flavor. After... More

We were personally escorted to a private room where a large round table fit our group of 8 perfectly. Surrounding us were antiques and pictures from floor to high ceiling. In a corner were pictures, letters and other evidence that President and Michelle Obama ate in the room at our table when they visited Cuba. The waiters were pitch perfect... More
