I love this place and tend to visit every few weeks on work trips. I've never been disappointed. You do have to queue but it's well worth the short wait. Take a beer with you and stand in line! The genuinely caring staff look after...More

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

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.
