Paladar elegante in una dimora storica decorata con antichi cimeli. Ottima cucina cubana
Paladar escogido por Barack Obama para cenar con toda su familia durante su visita a Cuba en 2016. Al parecer preferido por los políticos, en sus mesas también se han deleitado la expresidenta de Chile, Michel Bachelet, y el exmandatario uruguayo José Mujica. Pero el mundo del entretenimiento no se…
Located in an old mansion with several dining rooms furnished in antiques, this paladar offers a unique ambience and dining experience. The only restaurant that Barack Obama visited during his trip to Havana.
The restaurant has a museum-worthy interior crowded with old photos, animal skins, and a Santería altar flaked by pictures of Maceo and Martí.
The pleasant atmosphere, the proper air conditioning, plus its gourmet, international and Cuban food, have turned the San Cristóbal restaurant into an obligatory reference for foreign and national visitors despite its high prices. The former President of the United States, Barack Obama, visited the…

“At the beginning of the 20th century, La Época created the modern department store concept, introducing new commercial and management techniques at the time, such as control and business intelligence, window dressing, escalators or vertical concentration in certain areas. products. The building was completely restored in 1990 by the Office of the Historian of Havana, which turned it into an elegant shopping center, with very varied stores that sell everything from freshly made food to baby products.”

“ This really is the place to go if you want to see the very best Cuban salsa bands. The Galiano venue quickly gained a reputation as the best venue for salsa after its opening in 2003. There is much more space in the Galiano venue than its slightly posher twin in Miramar which allows you to bar perch if you want to take a break from the dance floor. When the big bands play, covers go up dramatically but the frantic energy and packed venues make it worthwhile and an experience to remember. Less popular bands struggle to fill up the venue so it’s worth checking to see who’s playing.”

“Chinese immigration to Cuba started in 1847 when Chinese (Cantonese and Hakka) contract workers were brought to work in the sugar fields, bringing the religion of Buddhism with them. Hundreds of thousands of Chinese workers were brought in from China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan during the following decades to replace and/or work alongside African slaves. After completing eight-year contracts or otherwise obtaining their freedom, some Chinese immigrants settled permanently in Cuba, although most longed for repatriation to their homeland. Havana's Chinatown (known as Barrio Chino de La Habana) is one of the oldest and largest Chinatowns in Latin America. Some 5,000 immigrants from the U.S. came to Cuba during the late 19th century to escape the discrimination present at the time. Another, albeit smaller wave of Chinese immigrants, also arrived during the 20th century, some as dissidents escaping the authorities in China. There are lots of small and cosy restaurants in the area. It's worthwhile paying a visit.”

“Ernest Hemingway lived outside Havana for twenty years, and naturally got much of the inspiration for his novels from the city—more specifically, from its bars. El Floridita, Dos Hermanos and La Bodeguita del Medio were Hemingway’s favorite bars when he lived there, and today they can be visited just like any other bar. Watch out though, as a few of them have turned into tourist traps. La Bodeguita was my favorite Hemingway-approved watering hole and still retains much of the subdued, authentic atmosphere you’d expect Hemingway probably loved. They have live salsa music, and also make a mean mojito, which never hurts.”
