La Guarida was the best restaurant we ate at in Havana. The views were spectacular, the service was great and most importantly the food was amazing! I would highly suggest making a reservation during sunset to get the best views and pictures. There is also...More

Hidden in the upper floors of an empty building, this restaurant is one of the best one can visit during the stay. Beware that it is cash only, it is not cheap, and reservation needed. They welcome you at their rooftop bar while waiting for...More

Get in early and plan your reservation months in advance! Great to have some "luxury". Allow enough time to enjoy the rooftop bar sights before/after your meal. Reasonably priced. Great experience

The best view and food in Havana! We especially loved the marlin tacos, lobster risotto and the snapper. We dined outside with a view of the water. The inside dining rooms are also very attractive. Don't miss the rooftop bar after dinner.

On our last night in Cuba my daughter and I treated ourselves to dinner here. It was a very welcomed experience after having spent 10 days with lower Cuban fare. It is a known fact that Cuban food can often be considered pretty awful. We...More

We went with some friends who are in Cuba on a regular basis and were glad to share both a delicious meal and a great ambiance of La Guarida. The entire area is frankly in shambles compared to what most Americans would expect, and the...More
