At night as in the rest of Cuba it seems that restaurant run out of everything. Prices are very reasonable the Red Snapper I ate was 6 Cuc and it... More

I have been a fan of Los Nardos for many years. A big, classy looking place full of carved, dark wood, no view. It was a Spanish social club in its long distant past. Don’t go on a Sunday as so popular with Cuban families, the lines are forever. This time they almost lost me as a customer. Not a... More

Despite the long wait, the food is great and the prices affordable for travelers. The atmosphere is fun and the staff friendly. Directly across from the Capital Building, so the location is amazing for walking around before/after. (PS try the tropical sangria-its amazing)

Los Nardos from the street just appears to be a dark staircase. When you climb those stairs and take a couple of turns at the top, you'll find a large bustling staff in a restaurant loaded with wood tones, a mind-blowing selection of wines and the best lobster on the island of Cuba. Other dishes are just as great. Los... More

I was determined to go to Los Nardos after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor when I looked for "Best Lobster in Havana". What a disappointment! We got there just before 7.00 pm and queued as expected for half an hour, then were shown upstairs to a seated area where we waited another half an hour before being shown to... More

Los Nardos has three things going for it. First it is very good food and menu of choices. Portions are generous. Then there is the value. There are bargain affordable prices and you can eat well for under $20. So when you are on a budget in Havana, Los Nardos should be on your list of eateries to visit. Finally,... More

I first dined here back in May 2014 and on that trip to Cuba this was my fave place to eat. Well, on this 2nd trip to Cuba I have to say that I still love this place but there are better places in Havana. We waited 2 hours in line, but that was fine. Both our entrees were delicious,... More

Recommended by a fellow traveler, while this restaurant is a little hidden, wow was it worth the find! Located on the 3rd floor of the building directly across from the National Capital building in Havana, the food was great, service was excellent, portions were unreal, and relatively low priced! A must when in Havana!!!

Excellent food, big portions, professionall, friendly and good english speaking staff, nice atmosphere, good music, clean restrooms, maybe you have to wait a little bit longer than usually to get in but it's definitely worth it!
