Though dining is not a spectacular experience in Havana, there are many surprising restaurants and cafés, many of which are geared to tourists. While in Havana, we had good meals at a couple of private restaurants, or “paladars”, including La Fontana in the Miramar section of the city.

We also spent a pleasant evening at El Templete, an upscale recommendation of the Hotel Nacional, where we enjoyed a view of the harbor and cool breezes as we dined on seafood with Spanish overtones under an awning out of doors.

Many of the restaurants downtown, like the one in the painting, are located next to rubble, and in some cases like the famous Paladar La Guarida, survive as lonely occupants of tenements.
