My family and I visited this past weekend. We were originally trying to go to a restaurant down the street but it was booked solid, and on a Saturday night we made the mistake of not making reservations. But El Partenon took us in right away and served us the most amazing multi-course meal for us to share. We didn't... More

It's one of these new owner set ups in a home things so from the outside doesn't look inviting but down the narrow alleyway and up the even narrower stairs there is... More

Everything was delicious, from the drinks to appetizers, mains and desserts. A carnivores delight. Went with a large group and every dish was a hit. Food is well conceived and well cooked with the right spices and flavors. Too many good things to call out. Service is very good. A bit out of the way but worth the trip.

This place was in Miramar but the restaurant is very hard to find. It is on the second floor which you have to reach through a narrow pathway. Do not give up , just find it as it is the one of the best restaurants in Havana. We were here 3 times and were satisfied all the times. All the... More

From the outside doesn't seem like much, but once you enter the place its something else. The interior setting is very nice, (def not a fast food), the people are great, and the food even better. great selection and variety. the flavor is everything you can expect from cuban food. also the deserts are awesome. highly recommend

This was an excellent example of the home-based restaurants so common in Cuba. We were steered here when another nearby place was full and we quite enjoyed it. Reasonable prices, good food, and while the staff was not fluent in English, we managed to communicate easily enough!

A friend brought us here while we were in town. It is far away but worth the cab/drive. This man converted his home into a restaurant so it really feels as though you are going to someones house. Everything we had was amazing but the grilled pulpo (octopus was amazing) I would have never ordered it myself but my friend... More
