This restaurant came highly recommended to us by locals, tour guides and all staff at hotels. My husband and I went with some people we had just met and were very excited for some delicious food. After waiting approximately 45 minutes to be seated, our...More

We were recommended this restaurant and read about it in The Lonely Planet for Cuban food. There is no name on the door and you climb up two flights into a virtually pitch black restaurant. We came early to avoid the queues that are always...More

Go in time, make a reservartion, or get ready to wait in line for a table! Just a little bit overrated, I've had better experiences in Cuba, but... The shrimps they serve are amazing!

First of all, I was really excited to go to Los Nardos because I had heard, read and seen on TV many rave reviews about Los Nardos. My experience at Los Nardos was nothing like these rave reviews. The dining room is dark. What exactly...More

A definite winner in my book. Food was flavorful and service was excellent (Ariel was the best!). The white bean soup was the best dish I had during my whole trip, and I had many great dishes. In addition, if the garlic lobster is available,...More

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
