Although its location and dynamics make it an essentially urban restaurant, its name, decor and ambiance are a clear reference to the Cuban countryside. Also typical are its country hospitality, its back-home cooking and its general atmosphere. Fresh, spacious, set amid pleasant gardens, adjoining Pabexpo - Havana's prime fair pavilion - and just minutes from the Habana Convention Center, Ei Palenque has abundant experience in catering to events and large groups of guests. While its reputation is enhanced by its variety of Cuban and international dishes, its seafood and its menu of Italian dishes -which cover a broad spectrum of culinary preferences at attractive prices-, its most outstanding virtue is the friendly attention and homey welcome that are a definite plus when eating away from one's own home

El Palenque is located in Havana
Capital of Cuba and the country's administrative, political, cultural and scientific center, it is also the capital of two provinces: City of Havana and Havana. Though only around 280 square miles (727 square kilometers) in size-0.65 percent of the archipelago's total area.
The Old Havana and system of forts led UNESCO to declare it a part of world heritage in 1982. Founded on its present site in 1519, the settlement of San Cristobal de La Habana prospered mainly due to its bay, which was a natural port of call for ships sailing to and from the New World. Starting in 1634, because of its strategic location, San Cristobal de La Habana was considered the key to the New World-as attested to by royal letters patent-and the main defense of the West Indies.
The Cuban capital consists of an immense number of buildings in a wide range of architectural styles, built in the course of nearly five centuries. These styles range from the pre-baroque to the baroque, neo-Gothic, neoclassical, eclectic, art noveau and art-deco, to the modern.
Alejo Carpentier, one of Cuba's most famous authors, called it "the city of columns" and focused attention on its streets, which he considered a perennially rich show of life, humanity and contrasts that was bound to entertain any observer.
Over 14 kilometers of excellent beaches lie to the east of the Cuban capital. To the south, a green belt contributes to a healthful atmosphere.

Popular among the Cuban
Popular among the Cuban locals especially when they have something to celebrate like birthdays, mothersday, valantinesday and on Sundays. The menu of El Palenque offers the real Cuban thing pizza, pork, chicken and even beef. The speciallity of Restaurant El Palenque is the charcoal grilled pork and indeed a good choice.
Middle of the road and going down hill
First time in Cuba, I thought "quick, afforable & reliable" ...after my third time back I would ONLY return "IF" I had a time constraint & needed something on the run! It's hardly "clean" their are fly's buzzing like no tomorrow all around the pork and the side dishes and what not, YUK! I
Only the pizzas station.
The only food court what is working properly is the pizzeria, because dont even try the pork meat,one of the worse quality in Cuba,standart services, not to clean,I personally pass by wiht my wife in a middle of a route to my hometown in Havana , they a little grocery stores inside with decent selection of basics need
Absolutely Horrible, Going Downhill fast
I have been visiting El Palenque for over 10 years, This place has had its high's and lows in terms of food quality and service. Unfortunately due to my recent visit I have to say this is by far the worst restaurant I have ever experienced in all of Cuba. The roast pork is dry , absolutely tasteless!Absolutely Horrible, Going Downhill fast
An interesting place do eat
I was here twice in February and I was happy to find it. First of all, for the barbeque and then for the atmosphere. The barbeques meat are made in an interesting and very healthy way, because the coals are about 90 cm under the meat so the steaks (chicken, pork or beef) are fried without any tars.
A site that offers local food but very poor quality, of course the cost is proportional. The only good thing about this site is the new ice cream shop, which certainly is not cheap. If they can avoid eating here would be best.
Nice Place to Eat
I was grateful to El Palenque while in Cuba. It had some good sangrias, the cheladas were good too. The food court has a grocery store in the same area. The food was ok, the tostones were nice as was the chicken and the pizza. This is the place to go if you want variety, you can find Cuban food
"El Palenque", located near PABEXPO exhibition place, is one of the restaurants where good treatment is combined with services and dishes of high international cuisine. In a familiar environment, you may try the most exquisite and favourite dishes reasonably priced. Ideal for meetings, dates or just for transients, "El Palenque" Restaurant is one step closer and to your disposal. Nice open air restaurant n.10 km way from center Havana, but good food and price about 8-15 usd includin some drinks. Good seafood
