El Palenque

International in Playa & Marianao

A huge place, next to the Pabexpo exhibition center, that sprawls beneath a series of open-sided thatched bohíos (traditional Cuban huts), the Palenque offers an extensive menu at prices cheap enough to attract both Cubans and visitors. The cuisine is Cuban/Italian, with pizzas, steak and fries, and lobster mariposa.
