Located in the Old Town Square, is a special place to drink a beer. The bar is located in a corner of the square and it is where you can order tubes of liters and serve yourself in your own glasses. Dinner is also usually filed, especially if you order shrimp, they serve you them with skewers of shrimp hanging on something like an ancient Roman hanger.
I recommend the Guajirito, and it´s true that almost all the taxi drivers will take you there. The place is fantastic and you can eat well there. I recommend going to the one by the cathedral and then taking a carriage, they will take you for a small fee. Great place!
Definitely a discovery, is has a good value for money. The service is exceptional, I even dare to say ¨European¨ and Cuba is not always like this. The place is classy and also the presentation of the plates as well. The only problem is that you have to reserve with time because it is not very big and it gets filled. If you go once you will go again for sure.
The palate Dona blanquita is worth a trip, the food is fantastic and the views even better. It is found in the center of the Prado. You have to go looking because the poster is at the end of the stairs that go up towards the paladar. Also, since there is no commission to be taken there, you will find a thousand people that will tell you where it is, when in reality their intention is to make you go somewhere else. Don´t forget to try the old clothes.
It was on my second trip to Cuba, which coincidentally enough a friend took me to. It's a 39 floor building and on the top floor is where the La Torre restaurant is. You can have a few mojitos while being astonished by the spectacle that was erected here, the atmosphere is very nice. And there's always something to munch on. Take time to contemplate the superb view. I went back a few times, eating a meal in the restaurant with a touch of Cuban-French haughtiness. It's worth it!
If you want to enjoy the atmosphere of the golden 20s and 30s in Cuban, you should visit this very elegant-looking restaurant with luxurious décor, large mirrors and paintings, bow-tied waiters, and live piano and violin music. It is a re-creation of the atmosphere of the pre-revolution aristocrats. Very charming.
It is just one of the restaurants you find on Bishop Street, the price is decent (not cheap nor expensive) and the fish and lobster are good. It´s not necessary to order meat unless you want your jaw to hurt from chewing it so much. With the menu there is a mojito and a live band.
