Paladares: A family table
Small, private and authentic. Thus we can describe Paladares - cozy family restaurants that aim to offer a unique experience, providing the perfect opportunity for the visitor to relate to the very essence of Cuban culture.
Paladares (a name that roughly translates to “Flavours”) appeared in 1990, a time when they had a maximum capacity of 12 people each. It was forbidden to sell lobster or meat dishes and the chef could only use local ingredients. Moreover, to ensure a typical environment of Cuban home, two of the employees should be related to the family.
Different meals in different places
Within the walls of a mansion in ruins, in a former factory or in one of the first Cuban Paladares, we witness a culture of sharing that remains true to the historic image of these locations. Through the tasting of the most traditional dishes, tourists are introduced to the essence of an international cuisine.
