Description: Havana Gourmet restaurants offer various dining and cultural one of the main streets of Havana options. In our building resides the American club, and our restaurant has several shields to confirm their presence. The building is home par excellence of an Asturian community of 35,000 members, but also distinguished by cultivating the art of cooking with restaurants of different nature: Havana Gourmet, La Xana and La Terraza, specializing in Cuban fusion food, Italian and grilled respectively. Rice, lasagna and fresh pasta, havana assortment, the slices of lamb with mustard and honey, leg of lamb chops, the malangon shrimp and octopus carpaccio and fish are some of the recommendations often held for the authenticity of the recipes and spectacular preparation, but customers can find in letters a range of proposals.

“Best in Havana”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

You cannot go to Cuba without spending a couple of days in Havana. I was more than pleasantly suprised at Havana, it was far more impresive than we are lead to believe, you must go before it becomes to westernised. There are NO MacDonalds thank God, no Western chains at all. So finding this Bistro by chance was a pur delight, so much so we ate there 3 times. Go for the upper floor terrace restaurant with fantastic views over Havana. The food was the best we ate on the Island. My wife has never seen so much meat on a barbqued rabbit. The service was fantastic with allthe staff suining an impropmtu Happy Birthday to a spanish Guitar and a candle in my Lemon Tart. Then the complimentary Cuban Rum, Fire Water. You must visit Havana before it is Westernised

“Good grilled food; HUGE portions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

This restaurant on the roof of a building off the Prado near Parque Central has a great selection of grilled food. Our table of six had a variety of dishes and all were delicious--but all were gigantic portions. The leg of lamb, for instance, looked big enough to be the entire leg of a lamb. And although most Cuban restaurants seemed to frown on sharing meals, two of us shared the mixed grill and we still couldn't finish it. Worth a visit, but go with a big appetite.

“Great place!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012 via mobile

After visiting the Bar Asturias many times we decided to try the restaurant during lunch, the doorman explained us about the different tastes we could find and encourage us to try La Terraza! Have to tell it was a very pleasant surprise, the service is excellent, portions are huge and the flavor is awesome! The Cuban BBQ flavor on seafood is a delicious experience!

Try it you won't regret it!
