Description: Nazdarovie is the first and only retro-Soviet restaurant in Havana Cuba, offering authentic Russian and Ukrainian food, music and ambiance. Our restaurant celebrates the amazing food of Russia, the Ukraine, and other ex-republics of the Soviet Union. Along with offering you superb food in a historic, retro-Soviet ambiance, our inspiration is to also pay homage to the thousands of Soviet women who decided to make Cuba permanently their home during the 1960s, 70s, and 80s (few Soviet men settled in Cuba during that time) and the thousands of their sons and daughters born in Cuba. We also pay tribute to the thousands of Cubans who went to study university in the USSR and maintain a deep sense of nostalgia for the years of their youth there. We hope to see you at Nazdarovie in Havana!

After our drive in a convertible Chevrolet down the Malecon, we had the driver drop us off at this restaurant. Climbing the few flights of stairs was worth the effort. Luckily, we were able to get one of the tables along the balcony with 180-degree view of the water and edges of old Havana. We started off with Revolution (vodka based) Mojitos which were delicious and strong. For our lunch, we ordered caviar canapes, lamb ravioli, a large cabbage roll, and chicken Kiev. All was wonderful. I would order all these items again. It was amazingly light - the fresh herbs were garden-fresh!
The décor is tastefully done with iconic posters from the USSR era. Even the Russian music was a nice touch. For a bit of fun, there are several Soviet military hats to pose in if you like.

We were walking past on the Malecon and noticed this place so came back another evening. The décor is great - communist posters and the like. The food was actually really good and they gave us a shot of vodka at the end to finish off the meal. The Cuba Libre was good and strong.

The restaurant is on a higher floor so you get a great sunset.

This was our favourite meal in Havana.

Really loved the communist theme. Probably not just a theme since we were in Havana. But really good food and service was given as required.
