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.

Brilliant local cuisine - try the rabbit - excellent. If room try to get on the terrace so you can watch the world go by on El Prado.

“The Best Restaurant in Havana”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

Ok, maybe I can't be 100% certain, since my wife and I have not eaten at every ingle restaurant in Havana, but we have been to the city 5 times and eaten in a great many establishments, and the Asturias is so far above every where else that we've eaten that i am pretty sure tht there isn't anywhere better.

The food is phenomenal. The service is excellent. And if the weather is good and you can get a table out on the balcony, you will be in for one of those evenings that will live forever in your heart among all of the memories that you count as treasure.

“A good restaurant choice, for Havana.”
Reviewed April 24, 2012

This is the first floor restaurant in the building of the Federation of Asturian (Spanish) Associations in Cuba, located conveniently close to the Parque Central, and next door to the Parque Central Hotel. Like many of the Habana restaurants this one is also located in an magnificent interior inside of an 18th century palace and well worth the visit. The two restaurants here (“The Terraza” restaurant on rooftop level is described somewhere else.) are of a semi-governmental type, since the Spanish society has a saying here, which means that they are above the (bad) standard of typical government run facilities. The service is attentive and fast, unlike in other places you won’t have to wait an eternity before your food arrives. However, like in most government restaurants I don’t know why I always get the feeling that the male waiters are part-time Police officers as well. I had a lobster day: The lobster cocktail was a nice cup of tasty lobster pieces served in a coconut shell. The presentation was nice and the taste was excellent. As a main course I had the grilled butterflied lobster tail, again, nice presentation and excellent taste, grilled to perfection without being dry. The dish comes with the typical rice and black beans, thankfully however served in separate bowls. The grilled lobster is one of the most expensive many course meals (15 CUC) and was worth it. Don’t leave Havana without having tried their excellent “Ropa Vieja” (“Old clothes”), served with beans and rice, a large fresh salad, and their signature bread basket. Sometimes the chef gets overly creative in regards to the presentation, some of his "food structures" however, collapse on the way from the kitchen to your table. The homemade grissini (bread sticks) are fabulous. Bathrooms will not match your expectation, maybe you want to bring your own wet wipes, or hand sanitizer. Try also the night club on the same floor, just walk past the bar and you will find it behind a big wooden door. “Asturias Restaurant” is one of the few restaurants in Habana I can recommend.
