La Guarida, Havana

Allegedly the best "paladar" (privately-owned restaurant, as opposed to state-run) in Havana - La Guarida. Located on an ordinary run-down street in Central Havana, La Guarida goes almost unnoticed, but once you step in and go up the massive staircase, the majestic old colonial building will impress everyone. 
As the building itself and its high ceilings, rooftop, and balconies are just picturesque, it is not surprising that one of the Cuba's internationally acclaimed movie Fresa y chocolate (Strawberry and Chocolate, 1994) was shot in there, in addition to many fashion editorials.
