Take A Ride to La Foresta


La Foresta is worth the 30-minutes drive from Old Havana to the exclusive Siboney neighborhood. Very close to the Havana Convention Center, it’s a delightful dining choice for gourmet food lovers looking for a modern take on local seafood. From the moment you step into the beautiful lounge-style backyard, it’s evident that quality and elegance are the hallmarks of this creative restaurant. Must-try dishes include the tamal marinero, a dish of tender corn with an enchilada of seafood and spinach and the fish-based cobo ceviche – definitely one of the best in Havana. The tuna fillet was also extremely tender and juicy – done rare and served with a parsley and garlic crust. We also enjoyed the good wine list and selection of premium rums. The staff was well-trained and attentive through the meal, which can be difficult to find in Havana; so La Foresta seems an ideal place for a large group. Ample parking is also available. Calle 17 e/ 174 y 176, Siboney, +53 72712777
