About paladar Atelier

Paladar Atelier is located in a quiet area in the Vedado district, near the Malecón.

The mastermind behind this successful company is Niuris Higueras, a culinary artist, she describes her dishes as signature cuisine (cocina de autor).
Not only can you taste creativity in gastronomic cuisine, the whole restaurant breathes art. On the tables, on the walls, everywhere you find art, sometimes also for sale.

The atmosphere is undoubtedly Cuban, although you'll sense other influences such as Mediterranean, colonial, even Arab. The restaurant is elegant, full of character and contains both classic and modern elements. Beautiful table linen, antique glassware, and freshly prepared meals illustrate that you're dining at someone's home, not in a restaurant.

On the two balconies of the mansion, benches with huge cushions are placed. Lounge, chill-out, and taste. Enjoy and raise the glass to Paladar Atelier.

Niuris cooks Caribbean and Latin American dishes, but also fish and seafood.
