We came to Havana by ship and had heard about La Guarida. It is easy to catch an old car taxi by the port. Cost is about 10CUCs. We went for lunch and I made the reservations in advance. We were asked to reconfirm and did so. Good thing we had reservations, because it was crowded. The restaurant is on... More

Sometimes the places that feel like you must go because of their legend are experiences you check off the list but wouldn't go back next trip. This was an elegant hippie of a restaurant with quirky decor and really beautiful and exceptional food. If I lived in Havana this would be my go to special occasion restaurant. Loved it.

A cool and quiet respite from the heat, hustle and bustle of Havana. Just a block from our Casa, we cherished the experience, the food and service were excellent, and the art on the walls bonus.

We visited top Trip Advisor restaurants in Havana and this one was the best by far. Food, service, decor. The views from the roof (if you walk up the stairs) are unbeatable. We celebrated my daughter's 21st bday there and were super impressed. The only thing I would suggest for them to do is to remove the pile of rubble.... More

This place was one of the highlights of our trip. I won't spoil it by adding pics, because the setting is 50% of the experience. The food was great and the service some of the best in Havana. Make a reservation or be prepared to wait. But definitely don't miss La Guarida on your visit to Havana!

I enjoyed the decor more than I enjoyed the food here. I ordered the Lobster served with Risotto, when it arrived to the table it was cold and the lobster was very salty. The sangria was delicious.

Not a restaurant you or many tourists would stumble upon in Havana Viejo but thankfully it was recommended to us in advance. Judging by the full tables it's also a good thing we made a reservation in advance! See the website for reservations, some pics, but we couldn't access the menu. By all means make this a MUST do in... More

It was a slightly longer walk to this location, but the atmosphere was cute and the food was food. The bar upstairs was very lively, but closed down pretty early (maybe because it was a Sunday).
