This is Cuba's most famous paladar (as Cuba's home restaurants are called). It’s a small place that gained a spot of fame when it was featured in the 1994 film "Strawberry and Chocolate." Posters from the movie are pasted on the walls along with a mishmash of images of santos and Jesus, something out of the hippie 60's. With its funky atmosphere, La Guarida is a hit with foreigners, from diplomats and journalists to drifters. The food, which runs to chicken and pork and some seafood, is mildly interesting though not excellent. Main courses CUC$11-CUC$17.
Address: Calle Concordia 418, Havana, Between Calles Gervasio and Escobar.
