Food and Cigars
La Giraldilla is a Cuban-owned restaurant hidden deep in the heart of Old Havana featuring a variety of gourmet Cuban/Spanish drinks and fare from traditional Ropa Vieja to fresh lobster and fish. The paladar is located on the third floor of an old colonial building with incomparable views of the Bay, Muro, Castillo Real, Casa de Che, Jesus Christo statue, and the Cañonazo. From the truly special sabor of a rooftop mojito to the friendly flavor of our staff who treat you as family, a visit to La Giraldilla is a can't-miss Cuban experience.


Come visit La Giraldilla for lunch or dinner and enjoy one of the following chef suggestions. Each plate is portioned to share between two (2) people comes with fried plantain chips, salad, rice (or beans and rice) and two (2) drinks (either mojito, cuba libre, ron collins, or fresh juice). Options are:

1. Plato Encendido: 6 lobster tails, each one filled with: lobster, shrimp, fish, calamari, pork, and chicken

The dining experience at La Giraldilla restaurant was very memorable. We went in the evening. We were able to reserve a table with a view and experienced the cannon event at the fort across the bay. The restaurant is beautiful and the table in the balcony overlooking the bay was amazing! We heard the cannons going off from the fort across the bay! What an experience! The restaurant owner and family welcomed us with open arms and made us feel like family. And the food was amazing! Having the opportunity to book a restaurant ahead of the trip was a big plus. Booking was easy and we would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Havana. Go for the food, stay for the cannon experience, and enjoy a romantic evening at La Giraldilla! You will not regret it!
