Havana is a city that sometimes seemed untouched by history, and yet what a rich and fascinating history it has. Our Old Havana, a city that has been influenced by many sources over the course of no less than five centuries, while retaining its own undeniable uniqueness.
At the heart of Havana, in the Callejon del Chorro, near the Cathedral, the Doña Eutimia palate mixes the modern and familiar. The restaurant’s name is a tribute to Eutimia, a lady who lived across the square and who used to cook for the artists in the Taller Experimental de Grafica artists such as Fabelo, Choco, Nelson Domínguez among others. Those big Cuban artists remember her with much love due to the flavors of her kitchen and the affection with which she always treted them. That’s the guideline of our work: to develop a Cuban, homemade, simple and loving food.
Nestled in a pretty little corner of San Juan de Dios and Compostela, 5 Sentidos boasts a classy style with large windows and all white décor. As a result of that, the restaurant is an airy space with a pleasant atmosphere, exceptionally ideal for a quick bite in the summer.
Paladar San Cristóbal has a familiar, mystical atmosphere and is a place full of memories, where they want people to feel unique and at home. Through a good dinner, they want to show the past and pay tribute to Cuban culture and roots.
Perched on the roof of the incredible Gran Manzana Kempinski, Cuba’s first truly 5* hotel, this bar is as luxurious as the hotel it belongs to. In short, El Surtidor does not disappoint. Situated by some of the most famous locations in Havana, such as Floridita and Calle Obispo and a stone’s throw from Parque Central, the views are to die for. Everything about this bar has a certain chicness that is not often found in Havana, with emphasis on ease and comfort for the visitors. Enjoy the view as you sip one of the signature cocktails, all of which are made to taste (such as the mango piña colada), or sample one of the top-quality cigars.
Marea is the only restaurant in Havana with its own private beach. Located in the backyard of one of its owners’ houses in Sante Fe, it sits just above the canals of the Marina Hemingway. A fishing area, you cannot go wrong with the seafood dishes at Marea which are extremely fresh and well prepared. Food aside, the venue is a destination with spectacular views, great cocktails and a beach area suitable for both kids and adults with shallows of soft sand and a trampoline from which to launch into the deep blue. Elsewhere the décor is summery with a touch of the Mediterranean in the white and blue colour palette and red-tiled roofs.
La Guarida, the famous Havana paladar is situated at Concordia street 418 in Central Havana.
The entrance through an old gateway in a crumbling mansion lead to a monumental stairway. The restaurant is located at the third floor.
Tierra restaurant, is the final step in making Fabrica de Arte (FAC) a true contender for the most interesting and exciting visitor locations in Havana. FAC is truly an inspired place full of art, music, bars, cafes and the most interesting people in Havana. Now that they have a five start restaurant inside they have it all. The food is eclectic and very good. The mojitos are the best in the city. You exit from that relatively warm and cozy cocoon to the pulsating beat of FAC to see the art and listen to your favorite band.
Built over a former oil factory from the early 20th century, the “Fabrica de Arte Cubano” or Cuban Art Factory (also known as FAC for its Spanish abbreviation) is the place everybody wants to go to at night in Havana. Every weekend, contemporary art exhibitions, dance performances, theatre plays, audiovisual presentations and Indie music concerts come together inside this place.
