Calle Amargura esquina a San Ignacio, Hotel Raquel
The "Jardín del Edén" ("Garden of Eden") restaurant at the Hotel Raquel serves dishes based on recipes from the traditional cuisine, the only restaurant in Cuba to do so. Located in a stately eclectic building with truly romantic inner spaces where Art Nouveau prevails, the restaurant adjoins the "Lejaim" Lobby-Bar, a word in hebrew that means "a toast to life".
Its culinary tradition is closely related to certain religious standards and some kosher requirements, such as not eating pork or its by-products, or seafood except for fish with scales and fins. The "Jardín del Eden" was conceived as part of the decoration project of the hotel and for this reason the lobby had to be partitioned with screens. Blue, the prevailing color in Hebrew culture, finds widespread use on the screens, as do other elements of Hebrew sacred 7-arm chandelier. This is an option Habaguanex and Old Havana's Historical Center offer those with the most exquisite tastes.
