Artists, intellectuals and politicians left testimony of their visit on the unmistakable celestial walls.

Cuban Restaurant
$$
“At the heart of Havana, in the Callejon del Chorro, near the Cathedral, the Doña Eutimia palate mixes the modern and familiar. The restaurant's name is a tribute to Eutimia, a lady who lived across the square and who used to cook for the artists in the Taller Experimental de Grafica artists such as Fabelo, Choco, Nelson Domínguez among others. Those big Cuban artists remember her with much love due to the flavors of her kitchen and the affection with which she always treted them. That's the guideline of our work: to develop a Cuban, homemade, simple and loving food.”

“Habana 61's menu features Cuban classics with a fresh twist. The lobster is among their most popular dishes, but the traditional 'ropa vieja' is just as delicious. For a starter, don't miss the cold tomato soup with shrimp. Located in one of the fastest developing areas of Old Havana, this small restaurant is often booked during high season.”
