I've now been to Los Nardos twice. It's pretty good quality for Cuba imo. Both time I ordered the vegetarian Paella and it was solid both times. It's an enormous amount of food for $5.95. Mojitos, pina colodas, etc... are $2.95. Most menu items are...More

Los nardos is a very nice restaurant and the servings are good. I suggest if you order any type of beef if you like medium order the medium well. We all ordered medium and it was cooked more on the rare side. The food was...More

Clearly Havana's worst kept secret. We were recommended this by our Air BnB owner but also noticed it on Lonely Planet. The huge queue that we luckily avoided (at 7pm) that was spiralling onto the road by 9pm is testament to the reputation of this...More

Totally overrated restaurant. After being in a line for 45 minutes, we finally go inside to wait for 15 more minutes to "enjoy" a mega dry roasted fish and a not at all peruan ceviche (I think they had not tried a nice ceviche ever)....More

Our Airbnb host recommended this place, it was within walking distance from our home (by the Capitol). The food is good, the portions are big, good prices. The restaurant is in a good location, inside is very dark but the atmosphere is quiet nice.

It is part of a project that comprises four restaurants in the same building. The mainly offer Cuban Spanish food. The servings are abundant. The food is good. There is a line to enter to the restaurant most of the time.

I had the chicken skewer and it was delicious, worth the wait! Very nice wait staff and cozy place on the inside with air conditioner:)

This popular spot has lower prices than many other tourist destinations in the old city. You can get a huge meal for pretty cheap. Food quality is so-so by international standards. The paella I ordered was very greasy and only included shrimp and chicken rather...More

We were recommended this restaurant by our Airbnb host in Havana. Good location, just off the main square. Food was good and huge portions too! Atmosphere was good but it was quite dark in there - perhaps better for dinner rather than lunch.

While I like Los Nardos for what it is, I would not call it gastronomically 4stars. More like three stars. I would not save it as my "special meal" Yes the service is great but the food can be "iffy" For a little more $$ I... More
