Top 5 / Caribbean

The culinary scene in Cuba has seen a remarkable resurgence following political reforms that allow private enterprise. Here are five of the best.

D’Giovanni

This pizza joint is housed in an 18th-century mansion in Old Havana, and is widely believed to serve the best pizzas in Cuba. It gets busy, so booking ahead is advised.

El Cucinero

Located in Vedado, this trendy spot is usually full of well-heeled visitors and wealthy Cubans. Cocktails are made by experienced bar staff and grilled lobster is usually on the menu.

La Guarida

Make sure to get a rooftop table at this atmospheric Old Havana joint, situated in a crumbling old mansion with an impressive chandelier. The view is as awe-inspiring as the food is tasty.

O’Reilly304

Fresh ingredients are the name of the game at this spot, a rarity in a city that struggles to get produce. The juices and cocktails are brilliant, as is the food and modern décor.

Atelier

This spacious restaurant is housed in an old mansion in Vedado, and the décor is as thoughtful as the menu. There is plenty of variety in the food, and a long cocktail list to boot. It is perfect for larger groups.

European Commission Outlines Plan to Reopen Europe

People need a “chance to get some well-needed rest, relaxation and fresh air.” This is a sentiment we all likely share, as does the European Commission, the executive branch of the European Union. The EC included that phrase when it released its plan to help reopen Europe following the COVID-19 global pandemic. While most EU borders remain closed to international travel until at least mid-June, the EC’s plan starts with inter-Europe travel, and are non-binding recommendations and guidelines. European countries still have the final decision, so travelers are advised to check the restrictions of the countries they plan to visit. According to the EC, “blanket restrictions of free movement are replaced by targeted measures.”
