La Torre Bar and Restaurant
You’ll be glad you made the journey to the 36thrd floor of The FOCSA building. Perhaps nowhere else in Cuba is there a setting quite so impressive for an evening meal. La Torre is a high-end, fine dining restaurant that provides stunning panoramic views across Havana. To make sure no-one misses out, there are glass walls on either side of the restaurant to showcase this captivating vista – quite the distraction when you really should be concentrating on the menu.
The dishes on offer are distinctly French in inspiration and diners can choose from a range of classics such as foie gras, lobster and veal along with tempting desert options including a buttery almond tart. While the French cuisine at La Torre is generally quite classical in style, the chef is known for a lighter approach to cooking, giving heavy sauces a more delicate touch.
As for the prices? Dining out at La Torre does involve paying above average than many other dining establishments in Havana, but a meal here is a true experience and the impressive backdrop makes up for the extra splurge. However, if you’d rather not come for dinner the restaurant does have a separate bar area available. Here, you can enjoy a cup of fabulous Cuban coffee, tuck into a selection of tasty bar snacks or treat yourself to an ice-cream.
A section of La Torre, the bar, offers a tempting variety of cocktails, including an excellent frozen daiquiri – the quintessential cocktail of choice when you come to Havana.
If you’re looking for a truly memorable experience, you’ll unquestionably find it at La Torre. There is no other restaurant or ban can lay claim to such spectacular surroundings and it’s worth booking a table purely for the views, which are arguably the best in all of Havana.
If you do decide to journey up to the 36th floor, you might want to time your visit for sunset. From the lofty position of this bar in the sky, there’s something truly breathtaking about seeing the sun’s fading light cast Havana in a deep golden glow.
