This is a must for anyone traveling to Havana. Great drinks, great food, fabulous waiter. Eat here and then go next door to the FAC (Art Factory). It's worth the 30 minute journey from the centre of town.

Beautiful place to have dinner before/after visiting Fabrica de Arte Cubano. Atmosphere is everything in this restaurant. Empanadillas were really good, crunchy outside and yummy inside!

Havana has a lot of hidden gems, one of them, El Cocinero restaurant. It is a place where well trained staff are attentive to your needs and food is impeccable. It will always be a pleasure to eat here. My pleasure!

El cocinero is one of my favourite restaurants in the city. It has great food with the best atmosphere.

Good music and public, this is an awesome place to spend hours enjoying the Cuban night.

It can be either for dinner or just drinks and appetizers this is a great option.

As a side benefit, it is just beside FAC, the best night life you can get!!!

Totally unlike all the other food available in Havana. Modern, great vibe and simply delicious Tapas style. This could be in New York. Bravo!
