“One of our favorite spots to dine in Old Havana! Sit inside in the cool, chill interior or outside on the third level outdoor balcony, and indulge. Great twists on local Cuban favorites, a full bar and and one of the best and most refreshing lemonades you will ever drink. ”

Bar

“This place consists of an ample terrace, small bar and various inside rooms to a comfortable Miramar mansion. The outdoor deck has been set up with tables and bar stools in a bar rather than restaurant style. Table service is excellent, the bar can be a bit annoying since beers are in a different place to cocktails but I am sure they will work it out. They do periodically have live music here but really this is either a pre or post party place. Relax, enjoy the good music, and try some of the excellent tapas and do some people watching. Address: Calle 10, entre 5ta y 31, Miramar.”

“O'Reilly, like other streets in Old Havana, keeps a thousand stories, and for a while, a corner to feel at ease. The food of the best quality and personalized service will make the time there inspire you to return again and again. Right at 304 this Gin Bar awaits you with its unique recipes, which you can accompany with a varied cocktail bar. Better, do not let them tell you.”

“Habana 61's menu features Cuban classics with a fresh twist. The lobster is among their most popular dishes, but the traditional 'ropa vieja' is just as delicious. For a starter, don't miss the cold tomato soup with shrimp. Located in one of the fastest developing areas of Old Havana, this small restaurant is often booked during high season.”

Bar
“Sangri-La is located in the basement of a Miramar mansion up on 21st Avenue (&42nd street) which is a little way off the usual beaten track. The fact that the exterior is not as beautiful as your 5ta Avenida locations should not put you off, your car will be fine outside and inside this is more akin to a Cuban yuppy bar than a working man’s club. The crowd that comes here is the same one that will make it to Fontana and Melem later. This is the Havana Farándula. There are booths all around the outside, which make a comfortable place to get snacks (or even a full dinner). Address: Avenida 21, Entre Calle 36 y 42, Miramar. Phone: (+53)5264 - 8343.”
