About paladar Nazdarovie

For many Habaneros it is a familiar scene. A Russian flag flies from a building situated at the Malecón, Havana's robust seaside promenade. Everyone on the island does have friends who have studied or worked in the former USSR. They can talk for hours about their experiences in the extreme cold.
The influence of the former Soviet Union is still visible in many places. The books of Lenin and Stalin in the bookstalls are a witness, so are the Lada's and Moskvitchs on the roads.

As a result of cultural and educational exchange programs between the two countries, Russians emigrated to Cuba. 
A handful of them works in this restaurant. They cook and bake according to traditional family recipes. Their vision goes beyond being just a commercial company. The restaurant considers itself also an institution that contributes to a cultural experience.

After climbing the high stairs, you step into a nice restaurant that breathes culture, history, and melancholy, although in a new present.
That's what Nazdarovie and our American vintage cars have in common. They evoke an atmosphere of nostalgia, a wistful memory of past times. After all, nostalgia is not culture-related. 

Sunset version

When the sun starts going down and sea and horizon change color, you will be picked up from your residence by one of our Oldtimers. From the comfortable back seat, you can see Havana in its most beautiful light. A stylish trip to a selected paladar (private restaurant) at the Malecón. Dine at sunset. 
Two tables are ingeniously attached to the balcony of Nazdarovie; face-to-face with the sea. You could sit here endlessly and enjoy Russian flavors and spectacular views. A private dinner by the sea.
