Go hungry & leave stuffed!

I ate lunch here on a day we were between activities and needed to go somewhere that could accommodate a big group (15 of us) and did not require a reservation. Of the three restaurants in this location, Los Nardos was able to seat us all at one big table after a short wait. There was a lovely... read more

A very popular place. Come early. If the wait is too long, then continue upstairs: both restaurants use the same kitchen. Any of the pork dishes are fantastic and the serving sizes are huge so each plate could be two meals.

The first positive was that they found a way to fit us in - a large group of family and friends without a booking. Service was great all night. Food amazing, portions great and choice wonderful including for the veggies. Atmosphere was really lovely , great music and surroundings. Overall just incredible value. Highly recommended to any visitors to Havana.

At our last day in Cuba, my group went to another restaurant in Havana (that from the first day was terrible). We went to ”Los Nardos” that is situated just across the Capitol building. It was quite busy there. We had to wait for few minutes until a table fitting all of us was free. Meanwhile I could watch the... More

Three restaurants in front of the capitolio, with different food origins. We chose the Cuban... Amazing food! We ordered two starters and couldn't eat any more... The place is spooky and dark, not at all what your used to seeing, but the food is drop dead!

Hidden Gem! Really well cooked food, so reasonably priced and huge portions! Don't over order - even if you eat a lot the portion sizes here really are enormous! We had Lamb shank which would be the size of a lamb in the UK and a snapper which was literally like a baby shark. Noticed in some other reviews people... More

Could not fault quality of food and ambiance. However our experience was tarnished by having to pay for water and appetisers already on the table which we did not ask for. To compound this we were expected to pay extra for service after already being levied 10 per cent on the final bill for service charge. A cautionary tale to... More

First floor restaurant - very firmly lit but Excellent service with a smile. Our waiter had excellent English too. The portions are excessively large though. Reasonable price. Queue to get in unless you are very lucky!

Excellent ambiance, abundant and varied food at regular prices! Locals actually go there and recommend this place. Spanish and local dishes, lots of seafood, beef, chicken, and porc.
