Escencia Habana is a tapas Bar-Restaurant, with international food, where gourmet and Creole provide a range of options. With the perfect combination of history and modernity, this space has exquisite 50's style decoration, both classic and elegant.
Located at the base of the Castillo de los Tres Reyes del Morro Lighthouse, Los Doce Apostoles Restaurant has a delicious menu and good wine list at relatively affordable prices. Another great reason to stop by is the battery of colonial-era canons and spectacular views of the bay and the city in the background. Seriously, at sunset it's spectacular! Highly recommended for a romantic dinner!
But I did not dare to give it a chance at the beginning.
It seemed like a place for seniors. Well, on my penultimate day I had traveled all over Havana and I did not have many places left and we decided to go to El Floridita to spend time and then arrive at our house.
It is one of those places that steal your breath, you feel the good vibes, the service here is exceptional does not seem to be in Cuba, even thanked the staff for their kind attention and were the best I received during my stay in the country. You will have the best Daiquiris, live orchestra performing hits like Buena Vista Social Club, Marc Anthony, Luis Fonsi, etc.
Your drinks are around 6 CUC and includes a plate of ladybugs (fried banana, fried plantain) this will not help you walk around drunk in Old Havana. Find more history about the famous writer Ernest Hemingway ve used to spend a lot of time here.
In Cafe Bohemia I fell in love with the atmosphere. Those who love reading and worship, will have an essential break from the bustle of the city and have a Expresso Bohemia, a kind of frappuccino, which is exquisite and refreshing, after passing through the sunny Old Town Square, where this beautiful place is hidden. It was created in honor of one of the founders of the Cuban magazine Bohemia, that has published a large part of Cuban history and it's framed covers decorate the entrance. Both in the courtyard, and beside that beautiful white shelf you want for your home, runs an air that invites you to linger for a few moments of peace. Try the daily special pasta or chicken, all prepared with fresh and seasonal products.
