Welcome to Paladar Chicago, Cuban Restaurant and Rum Bar


Paladar Cuban Restaurant and Rum Bar is a totally new concept in Cuban dining. Although private restaurants were forbidden by law in Cuba, paladares were sanctioned by the Cuban government in 1990 and began to spring up across the island in homes in response to the growing scarcity of food. Cubans began to refer to their own home-grown Cuban restaurants as paladares.

Reservations are highly recommended.

We always wanted to offer Cuban dishes here in Chicago as we remember them, and not just the standard "Cuban restaurant menu" fare. Our menu was carefully designed to bring together all the great flavors of Cuba using my family’s recipes from the Southern Coast region, and merging them with other providences of Cuba.
