Hello! I am a young Cuban entrepreneur and historian with a degree from the University of Havana. I love to learn about my home city and share my extensive knowledge with locals and visitors alike. When I'm not reading about architecture or historical events, I'm helping to manage my family's thriving restaurant called La Giraldilla in Old Havana. We serve high quality seafood and Spanish dishes. The paladar is located on the third floor of an old colonial building and has an incomparable view of the Bay, Castillo Real, muro, and cañonazo. Come to experience delicious Cuban food and meet our family!
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!
