Nazdarovie – Havana’s new retro-Soviet restaurant

It's only fair to share...Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Pin on Pinterest

You won’t find the common staples of rice, beans and fried plantains at Havana’s latest culinary offering… and your minty mohito will come mixed with vodka, and not the traditional white rum.

Don’t expect to be able to order in English (or ever Spanish for that matter), as the waiters speak Russian and expect you to order in Russian as well. Is your Russian a little limited? Not to worry, the menu at the restro-Soviet inspired restaurant comes with a pronunciation guide and translations for all guests.

Nazdarovie (named after the popular Russian Toast), opened last week in Havana and is definitely worth a visit. Given Russia’s and Cuba’s history, it is a surprise their isn’t more of these restaurants scattered around Havana.

Popular dishes include blood red borscht and Ukranian varenyky dumplings, hand-rolled by “babushkas”, born in the Soviet Union but now well entrenched in Cuban society.

If you wanted to combine a visit to Nazdarovie with a customised Private Havana Tour, this is something the Havana Tour Company can definitely help arrange!

About Daniel Stretton

Dan is one of the Founders of the Havana Tour Company, along with Romey Chuit who is a Cuban national. A keen traveller, Dan Stretton instantly fell in love with Cuba when visiting for the first time. Despite countless salsa lessons, Dan still struggles to dance like a Cuban (or dance at all for that matter). He has however picked up how to make a scrumptious mojito! Dan is also a keen photographer, looking to capture the heart and soul of the real Cuba and the tours he has helped to create.
