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.

The concierge at our hotel recommended this restaurant - we wandered down the streets of Old Havana to get here during a heavy tropical rainstorm. It was fascinating to wander amongst the locals and see what happens during heavy rain.

We got to the restaurant safely and dry thanks to umbrellas from the hotel.

We then ascended to the 3rd floor for the grilled food. It was the same as a parilla grill for all the mains.

We had ceviche and grilled pimentos as starters and then grilled lobster tail - oh my how delicious. The lobster tail was stunningly delicious and not expensive. It was grilled to perfection and so tender and tasty.

Raoul our waiter was superb ...... he had excellent English - learnt from watching movies - and understood all the wines on their list. We had a beautiful Chilean Chardonnay which was a great match to the seafood.

My partner had a dessert of chocolate mouse with a delightful tokay.

This place is a great place to visit and enjoy the food of Havana.

This place was just in the corner of our hotel (Iberostar Parque Central) and they recommended us to go. This place is the "Unión de Sociedades Asturianas" and we went to "La Terraza" which was on the last floor. As its name says, it has a great terrace, but you can also eat inside. We opted to eat inside (with air conditioned) since that day it was extremely hot to eat in the terrace.

The food was delicious. We had grilled vegetables and baked potatoes as a starter, and I had the pork and tomatoes with rosemary brochettes with fried banana which was delicious. My brother had a pork sirloin and he was very pleased too.

The prices, if I remember well were around 20 CUC each, which isn't the cheapest price around.

The food was amazing and the service was wonderful! Our tour had recommended several different places, but made an effort to specifically mention this one. So glad we took the hint and paid a visit! The roasted red peppers stuffed with shredded beef is one of the best dishes I've ever eaten! Lovely evening.

I have visited this charming place many times. Each time I ordered different meal and everything was tasty. The people working there are attentive and actually pretty honest which was very helpful and funny. You can enjoy variety of spanish wines or selection from Chile while experiencing the daily life in Havana with beautiful views of one of the most cultural streets Prado.
Red snapper, pork, octopus, tuna or lamb everything on the grill right in front of you, smell it the meal is almost ready.

And one more hint for cigar lovers, there is a stylish smokers lounge which brings you to the private world of business people making deals while enjoying some tobacco.

The food took well over an hour to come and then my pasta had 2 hairs in. Says it all really. Avoid!
