Cuban Restaurants
El Templete 

El Templete
Avenida del Puerto #12, corner of Narciso Lopez., Old Havana
Tel: 537 866 8807
Type: International
Open: noon-midnight
El Templete's the jewel in Old Havana's culinary crown. Its Gallego chef's Arkaitz Etxarte sophisticatedly simple take on traditional ingredients gladdens the hearts of Havana foodies who flock to El Templete for his mango duck and chateaubriand accompanied by delightful side dishes and a short but well chosen wine list. Puddings are Lucullan, too: no-one should leave Havana without experiencing the chocolate brownies (Bohío de Chocolate). The Templete's right by the harbour—best to get a table inside so as not to be engulfed in carbon monoxide by passing lorries, but be sure to get a table by a window to watch the Regla ferry bustling to and fro across the harbour.

Finca 

Finca
Calle 140, esquina 19, Cubanacán., Playa
Tel: 537 208 7976
Type: Caribbean
Open: noon-midnight Mon-Sat
La Finca is extremely up market, set in the suburbs of Siboney past the Convention Centre it is run by Cuba's gastronomic guru Tomás Erasmo. The atmosphere is provided by an abundance of tropical greenery within whose confines you may enjoy lobster termidor or fresh fish beautifully prepared. Not cheap and often quiet.

Floridita 

Floridita
Calle Obispo #557, esquina Monserrate., Old Havana
Tel: 537 867 1299
Type: International
Open: noon-midnight
The Floridita is something of a cliché but a good one. Service is excellent and the ambience classy. The bar features a cordoned-off seat of former regular customer Ernest Hemingway. Food is good but expensive; thermidor lobster will set you back CUC 42.

Habana Café (La Piazza) 

Habana Café (La Piazza)
Avenida Paseo, entre 1 y 3., Vedado
Tel: 537 833 3636
Type: Habana Café: American snacks La Piazza: Italian
Open: Habana Café: 8. 30pm-2. 30am La Piazza: 1pm-midnight
While this impressive hotel is not to everyone's taste if you want reliably consistent quality food with attentive service than you would do well to check out one of the hotel's 5 restaurants. The two places which we really like are La Piazza (1st floor) which has a standard Italian menu (great pizza) with lots of sports memorabilia on the walls and Habana Café (located next door), a wannabe hard rock-style which serves Havana’s best hamburgers and is a great place to get a bite pre cabaret.

Jardín del Edén 

Jardín del Edén
Hotel Raquel, Calle Amargura, esquina San Ignacio., Old Havana
Tel: 537 860 8280
Type: Jewish
Open: Noon-11pm
This restaurant is located in the lobby of the beautifully restored Hotel Raquel (the stained-glass ceiling is a real highlight of Old Havana). Included in the partly Jewish menu are Hungarian goulash and Israeli salad. Kebabs also feature heavily, with Shashlik del Edén, a combination of plainly cooked fish, chicken among the specials.

L' Aiglon 

L' Aiglon
Calle Paseo y Malecón., Vedado
Tel: 537 33 4051
Type: international
Open: noon-midnight daily
The perfect choice for exquisite Cuban and international food in an upscale but accessible restaurant. Conservation of original decor, including silverware, furniture, candelabras, and beautiful ceiling lamps, all straight from the 50's gives it the aura of the period. The filet mignon is terrific, served with bread slices bathed in special sauce. Also divine are the lobster platter or Santiago shrimp, unique to this eating place.

La Barraca - Comedor Aguiar 

La Barraca - Comedor Aguiar
Calle O, esquina 21., Vedado
Tel: 537 873 3564-7
Type: La Barraca: Cuban/BBQ Comedor de Aguiar: International
Open: La Barraca: noon-11. 30pm Comedor de Aguiar: noon - 4pm, 7-12pm
The Hotel Nacional is a must see fabulous place. In the heart of the city overlooking the Malecón you will drive past it repeatedly. There are a number of restuarants within the grounds of which La Barraca is probably the best. Set in the lovely gardens this is a traditional ranchón (ranch) and serves drinks in ceramic mugs and a succulent all-you-can-eat chicken menu. The other feauture restaurant is the Comedor de Aguiar which is very grand, a little intimidating, expensive with beautiful chandeliers and immaculate waiters.

La Dominica 

La Dominica
Calle O’Reilly #108, esquina Mercaderes., Old Havana
Tel: 537 860 2918
Type: Italian
Open: noon-midnight
La Dominica enjoys a lovely setting next to the restored Colegio Universitario de San Gerónimo in between Plaza Vieja and Plaza de Armas. Patio tables are the order of the day outside of the heat of summer when the formal interior offers a chilled alternative. The food and service are both good with pizza and pasta heavily featured. Not quite as tasty as Prado y Neptuno and don’t ever expect the credit card machine to work but almost as good as it gets in Old Havana.

La ferminia 

La ferminia
5ta. ave. e/ 182 y 184. Miramar., Playa
Tel: 537 2711435
Type: international
Open: noon-midnight
On the Elegant 5th. Avenue of Miramar, just a few minutes from the Conventions Center and Downtown Havana. Excellent restaurant specialized in international and national food; with an exquisite service of a wide choice of cocktails. As house specialties it offers the Coco Rosa and Tropical Silver cocktails.

La Floridana 

La Floridana
Calle Obispo, esquina a Cuba., Old Havana
Tel: 537 862 41 27
Type: cuban/international
Open: noon-midnight daily
This luxurious establishment can accommodate 60 diners and is one of the hotel's jewels. Its foyer has a cafeteria, and is a fine spot to have drinks before dinner or lunch. It mainly offers traditional Cuban cuisine, but it's international fare will impress even the most exacting clientele. The Pollo Florida (Florida Chicken) is a house special, a delicious slab of boned chicken filled with shrimp and béchamel, bathed in seafood sauce and batter-fried shrimp.
