La Esperanza

International in Playa & Marianao

La Esperanza recalls those old-school paladar (private restaurant) days when you felt you were dining in someone's home, and here you essentially are. The interior of this vine-covered house is a riot of quirky antiques, old portraits and refined 1940s furnishings, while the food includes such exquisite dishes as pollo luna de miel (chicken flambéed in rum) and lamb brochettes.
