If you are lucky enough to visit the striking Cuban capital Havana, we’d like to recommend a few nice places where you can have lunch or dinner:
Paladar El Rincón de Elegguá
Here you will find many chicken, pork or fish-based dishes. It is a very well located restaurant, which might make the dishes more expensive than at other places but the difference is worth it. The decoration at El Rincón de Eleggua is simple and the service is very good. It is located at Aguacate 257 between Obispo and Obrapia, and opens from 12 noon to 12 midnight. You won’t be disappointed!
Restaurant Prado No. 12
The name of this restaurant is also its address, an easy way not to forget where it is located, at the intersection between Paseo del Prado and the Malecón. One of the main dishes is grilled meat. The shrimp servings are large and very tasty. The owner and the staff are pleasant and the service is very good. During the afternoons they offer Tai chi classes sponsored by the Chinese embassy.
Restaurant El Patio
An excellent restaurant located at Plaza de la Catedral, in the heart of the Historic Center of Old Havana. It is surprising because of the large door and the balconies on the upper floor, as well as the stained glass windows. There is good, personal and high quality service. If you prefer something lighter, there is also a snack bar.
Restaurant La Mina
It is very well located, at the corner of the Plaza de Armas, and visitors are offered quite a few Cuban dishes, such as tamales and black beans with white rice. Try out the homemade desserts and the delicious Cuban coffee. The address is Obispo 11 at the corner of Plaza de Armas.
La Bodeguita del Medio
La Bodeguita del Medio is a classic restaurant in Havana. Here you can enjoy a unique place filled with memories of Ernest Hemingway. The decoration seems taken from a legend, with chairs bearing the names of well-known characters who were regulars in the day. The walls are covered with autographs and written messages. The food is simple yet tasty. It is located at Empedrado between San Ignacio and Mercaderes, in Old Havana.
La Bodega de los Vinos
La Bodega is located in the fortress of San Carlos de la Cabaña, within the well-known Morro Cabaña Park. This is a traditional establishment with a welcoming atmosphere. The prices are reasonable, with a large variety of tapas (appetizers) and full dishes. The wooden tables and benches are special and very pretty. There are often flamenco music performances here.
