El Paladar La Guarida: "The most famous Cuban paladar" La Guarida Tip by Oana_bic

La Guarida, Havana: 3 reviews and 8 photos


The most famous paladar in Cuba owes its renown in equal parts to the wonderful ambience, excellent cuisine, and the starring role it played in several scenes in the Cuban blockbuster film Fresa y chocolate.
The three small rooms of this converted apartment are reached by climbing three stories of steep, rundown, and poorly lit stairs. The signed celebrity headshots let you see the stars in whose steps you have just followed.
I would recommend going for lunch or late lunch during daylight as the neighberhood - Centro Habana is slightly dodgy.

Favorite Dish: We had some delicious tuna and some sea food risotto, both of them being probably the best dishes that we had in Cuba.
