    The prices at Black & White:

    This is a paladar located in Vedado, in a second floor apartment on Calle 12, a few blocks away from the Colon Cemetery. The concept is of an elegant dining room decorated in black and white. Nevertheless, the result is not quite right; the place looks a little bit cheap. But those are just the looks, because the food is far from cheap. The normal pork plate costs CUC 15; chicken, the same; beef, likewise, and if you decide to order shrimp, be prepared to pay CUC 18 or more. The food preparation is average, so I believe it would be wise for this restaurant to make a field trip to competitors in the area to realize they are overpriced and that the recipe for a healthy business may be to increase the quality and decrease the prices.
