Din Don has been around the block for many years, being one of a number of stable Miramar paladares. This is a Cuban/Italian place with an extensive menu pretty reasonably priced. There is one main rectangular inside dining area, basically but attractively furnished Italian style. There is room for perhaps 40 people to eat at once.
Pizzas are only 5 CUCs and there is a wide range of pasta for 5-6 CUC. Other dishes include brochette CUC 3, Carpaccio CUC 6, Jamón Serrano (raw cured ham) CUC 7. Cordon Bleu chicken CUC 6.50, filet mignon CUC 10.50, Grilled shrimp CUC 10, Langosta mariposa (lobster mariposa) CUC 18 and Paella Marinera (seafood paella) CUC 8.50. Wine is very reasonably priced at CUC 12 for a nice bottle of Spanish vintage, and the desserts excellent, especially the Torta Din Don (vanilla cake with apple and pear filling covered with bell-shaped chocolate cream).
This was somewhere I used to go to (if infrequently). Now, probably not. It is simply not special enough given the effort that some of the newer places are making. The last time we visited (December 2011) it was completely dead (possibly due to a bad night), but it seemed more than that, like it had been somewhat left behind by the energy of the newer places that have sprung up. Set against this, the service was truly excellent, so we look forward to seeing this old favourite back in action soon – but do something!
