February 2010

La Guarida, the legendary Paladar located on the third floor of an old house in central Havana and famous for the 1995 movie “Fresa y Chocolate”,  the Paladar with the best cuisine, service and atmosphere in Cuba, has closed down.

All lovers of contemporary Cuban cuisine will be saddened.

I’ve had some memorable dinners at La Guarida and will sorely miss its first class menu and the great camaraderie shared with other discerning cigar aficionados.

Its fantastic ambiente cannot be duplicated.

A tribute to the best Cuban Paladar ever.


PD : La Guarida fortunately re-opened its doors a year later ….
