La Brisilla

Cuban in Regla & Guanabacoa

Unsignposted, hard to find and, consequently, almost 100% local, this is a rare private restaurant in Guanabacoa, where the food culture doesn't seem to have moved on much since the not-so-tasty '90s. You'll have to ask the way in Spanish to get here, but when and if you make it, the rabbit in red wine and succulent lobster will leave you feeling as pleased as you'll be surprised.

In Calle Cruz Verde, La Brisilla is the pleasant stone-fronted house with two lions on a parapet.
