Casa Abel, cuisine and cigars

For a typically Cuban evening, head to Casa Abel, where you can have the most authentic meals with suggestions on how to choose your ‘Habano'.

This small restaurant is run by the colourful Abel Expósito Diaz, who has only one goal: for you to feel at home. If you have the slightest doubt about the origin or quality of a cigar, Abel can tell you what you need to know. You can follow his advice with your eyes closed as he had a long career at Partagás, the famous Cuban cigar maker.

After having spent years talking cigars with visitors, Abel decided to welcome them to his home and today has a convivial restaurant that serves typical Cuban cuisine. The chef is particularly proud of his grilled lobster, he claims it to be the best in Cuba and so do his customers. Also try the fresh salad or the shrimp risotto. After dinner, the owner will invite you upstairs to a small smoking room to have an authentic cigar that he will have selected for you with a fresh mojito. After all, it is the tradition.
