The food is very good and you can find here both Cuban and international dishes. Sangria is perfect, and the service OK. We went for a late lunch and we were very satisfied about our choice.. The prices are fair, too.

We had to go to the restaurant at about 5:00 to beat the rush and it was worth it. The portions were large, like everywhere else in Cuba, and the food was very tasty. They make great sangrias too! The one drawback was that the restaurant was so dark, we luckily had a small flashlight with us to be able... More

Our most disappointing restaurant in our week long stay in Havana was Los Nardos. There is always a lineup to get in. We went for dinner one day and left. Another day we went for lunch and decided to wait in the line. Fifty minutes later, we were let into the restaurant where we waited another 10 minutes in the... More

This may not work for everyone, but upon arriving, my group saw the long lines for los brazos, and el Asturianitos, so we asked about el trofeo. We were then led in, and seated within 15 min....at los nardos! food was 8/10 and a great value for the $$, only better i had in cuba cost 3x the price.

We waited online for hours because this was recommended by both our casa owner and our taxi driver. The lines are unorganized and extremely long. They are in no hurry to move along. We waited 2.5 hrs outside on a hot, hot day. Extremely unorganized. The food came slow, the portions are large and come with sides, however, prices were... More

This is a very popular restaurant; arrive early for lunch or be prepared to wait a long time. The prices are moderate and the food is terrific! Directly across from El Capitolo but still not easy to spot. Los Nardos is the first restaurant you come to as you ascend the stairs. The inside oozes with old Cuban architecture and... More

Very popular place and easily missed if not in taxi. We had an hour wait, but once in, we were very pleased. The prices are extremely low and the portions are huge. A large variety of choices, with nice seating and service, plus nice live music in the background.

I recommend it for sure. The lobster was great and the quantity was unbelievable, the price was also normal in comparison with the food. You have to make a reservation or to wait outside the restaurant.

Right opposite El Capitolio building and surrounded by hundred of old, yet re-vamped American classic cars is Los Nardos. A place that will surely take you through the best of the Spanish-Cuban cuisine to a place that you have never been. With its Bodegon style, makes all the difference. We dined here three times and every single time was better... More

We saw people on the line outside the restaurant and after googling we decided we want to go there one night. We went there around 7.30 and waited about 15 minutes inside the restaurant. The ambience in the restaurant is really nice, lots of candles, nice and a bit exotic decorations, high ceilings and friendly staff. Food is really good... More
