We were traveling with a group of Americans and this was on our tour. We enjoyed a beautiful meal in an amazing setting. We were given a welcome drink, a shot of rum, and a cigar. Who wouldn't like this? I hope to return on my next trip.

Must visit dinner when in Havana. Just blocks from the Habana Libre hotel in Vedado. Food, ambiance, and service were 5 Stars. Choice of outdoor or indoor air conditioned seating. Meals come with after-dinner cigar! Just go, you will not be disappointed.

The food was fresh and flavorful and the service efficient and friendly. We were part of a tour group so had a fixed menu but everything was fresh and didn’t appear to have been prepared ahead of time.

An old house and its patio were adapted as a nice restaurant. Staff tries to make you feel welcome and comfortable. Food is over average. Try lobster or lamb.

Our group had a private room at this paladar. The food was wonderful and service exceptional. The owners were not available, but staff spoke English and made us feel very comfortable.

Lovely place with a pleasant, relaxed atmosphere - there were 2 guys playing music which added to it. Service was attentive. We chose the 25CUC starter/main/dessert with wine. Food was standard Cuban fayre but absolutely no complaints and would recommend.

We started with gazpacho soup that was the best i have ever had! Then we shared a paella for two that was exceptional and it is a specialty of the house. It was a super restaurant!!!

In Cuba the family run paladars are the best places to eat and this one is no exception. We came here with a group from Grand Circle but we were treated like individuals. We were served family style lamb, , pork, lobster, rice, beans. Guava preserves and cream for dessert.

When our driver dropped us off I was a bit confused on where we were. The food at La Moraleja is actually pretty good and the atmosphere is quite nice as well. Walking behind a house is an outdoor/indoor oasis with overhead vines and lots of ambience. They have both indoor and outdoor seating, with a nice bar as well.... More

Paladars can be spotty both for food, location, and atmosphere. Our tour group had a salsa lesson at this paladar, which was weird dancing on a concrete floor. But the set up and grounds for this paladar are very nice. The food - at least the tour group food is just ok.

Thank Barnaby H

El “joven” restaurant abrió sus puertas el 13 de febrero del 2011, luego de meses de una ardua labor de sus dueños y de todo el equipo de trabajo. Enclavado en el patio de una hermosa casona del Vedado estilo años `40, tiene un especial magnetismo que se aprecia desde su amplia y fresca entrada, sus salones (al aire libre y climatizado), su singular cocina y la excelencia del servicio.Con un selecto menú se complacen los gustos de toda la clientela. La variedad es amplia y va desde nuestra comida tradicional hasta recetas únicas e innovadoras de una total tendencia gourmet; siendo el factor común la selección cuidadosa de los ingredientes y las atrevidas presentaciones que realzan las texturas, sabores, colores y aromas.
