A Dish you should try part 2

If you like seafood and fish, Cuba is a great place for you. As it’s an island and you have sea and coast almost everywhere there is also a lot of fishing and, of course dishes that contain fish and sea food. From marlin to lobster people in Cuba prepare tasty dishes in an innovative or traditional way.
So make sure you try some langosta (lobster), camaron (shrimp), pulpo (octopus), cangrejo (crab) or pescado (fish).
Usually the lobster and the shrimps a prepared in three typical ways, but more and more restaurants offer their own unique way to serve them. The most typical ways are: enchilado, al ajillo and grillé or a la plancha. Enchilado is cooked in a sauce of wine, garlic, tomato, unions and green pepper, the second one is fried with garlic and the third one is grilled.
All three are very nice options if they are well prepared.
Here are three places in Havana that prepare stunning fish and seafood dishes:
  1. Doña Eutimia
Yes, again the place in Habana Vieja.
Doña Eutimia is a place in centre of the Old Town in Havana, right by the Cathedral, that offers high quality Cuban food and great service. If you want to eat dinner there you should make a reservation. The restaurant is nicely decorated and the waiters speak English.
Very special is the “enchilada de la casa”, wich is fish in sauce I described above but in a very special way, served with rice, salad and the traditional black beans.
The Adress:
Plaza de la Catedral, Callejón del Chorro
No.60C, Habana Vieja

  1. Donde Lis

Pulpo al ajillo in Donde Lis 
Donde Lis opened recently and turned very fast in my new favorite restaurant in Havana. Also located in Habana Vieja, but it a side street, Donde Lis is decorated simply but nice and serves amazing food with really high quality. Most recommendable is the seafood plate for two, it comes with lobster, grilled fish, shrimp and octopus and it’s just great. Also very nice is the starter with octopus and guacamole.
The Adress:
Tejadillo No. 163,
e/ Habana y Compostela, Habana Vieja
Telf: 78600922
  1. Ideas
This one is located in the Vedado neighborhood and is decorated in a modern way, has very nice music playing and a great terrace. Ideas is a great place to visit for lunch as they have special offers like a whole menu, including drinks, for 10 CUC. But also for dinner it is nice to visit the place. Try the seafood risotto or one of the other dishes, you won’t be disappointed.
The Adress:
Linea No. 110,
e/ L y M
Telf: 78308900
