  • El Litoral opened its doors after extensive renovations in January 2014 in a renovated mansion almost next door to the US interest section. The ceilings are high but this is a modern finish with tasteful and elegant furniture. The menu is extensive with a range of tapas—try the foccacia de papa, pulpo y ajo tostado (Focaccia with octopus and garlic), mejillones rellenos ‘Tigres’ (stuffed tiger Mussels) and Cazuela de chorizo al vino, pimienta y pan (Spanish sausage with wine and pepper) or just order a plate for the best-stocked cold cuts and salad bar in Havana.
