La Terraza de Cojimar, a Hemingway favorite

Hemingway's favorite table at La Terraza
Hemingway’s favorite table at La Terraza

The story goes that Ernest Hemingway liked to sit at the corner table overlooking the bay off the northern coastline of Cuba and drink an oversized daiquiri. Not a bad idea, really. Sun streams in through the open-windows of this tourist hotspot, while musicians roam the restaurant strumming traditional Cuban music. Being in the fishing village of Cojimar, the restaurant pushes mostly seafood. Keep it simple with a fresh fish filet crisped in a pan and garnished with a squirt of lime, and sip on a glass of mango juice. Calle Real No. 161 esquina a Candelaria, Cojímar (+53)7763 – 9486
