Restaurants & Paladares

Restaurants in Miramar Havana

The Miramar district ("Playa & Marianao") has an excellent choice of restaurants and private paldares - probably the best in all of Havana. The range includes the Cuban-Creole cuisine, Spanish Paella, seafood and also pizza. There is the perfect dish for every taste. 

The private restaurants in Havana - the so-called "Paladares" are at least the equal to their government-run competition and are often superior. For a reasonable price you get delicious home-cooked dishes here.

Restaurants

Restaurant "Casa Española"
The restaurant "Casa Española" is one of the better places in Havana. In this castle-like building you can enjoy Spanish cuisine (recommendation: Paella 2 for Persons). The waiters are courteous and the prices are acceptable. Only the imported Spanish wines can push up the bill quickly.
Restaurant "La Ferminia"
Excellent restaurant, located in a former private villa. You can have your meal surrounded by stylish, antique furniture or in the garden of this beautiful restaurant in Havana. We recommend the house speciality - grilled meat with veggies.
Restaurant "Don Cangrejo"
Fresh fish and seafood dishes with sea views: lobster, mussels, squid. In the "Playa" zone "Don Cangrejo" is a classic among the seafood restaurants in Havana. The food is fine, but the reputation of this restaurant has also been reflected in the prices.

Paladares

Paladar "La Fontana"
A really good tip for a restaurant in Havana Miramar district. Dishes made with fish and meat from the charcoal grill, served on the spacious terrace. You will be pleasantly surprised by the variety of dishes and the imagination of the chefs.
Paladar "Vista Mar"
Paladar restaurant with sea views towards the Bay of Havana: The "Vistamar" paladar is located in a former private villa by the sea. The price / performance ratio is excellent here, and you won't be disappointed by any of the delicious seafood dishes.
Paladar "La Esperanza"
Embark on a time travel and dine in a fashionable 40's atmosphere. The decoration is unique and the food excellent. Among the highlights on the menu you'll find the highly recommended flambe chicken and fish in wine sauce.
