El Cocinero

fashion

Industrial decor, artistic melting pot, and grid-patterned dishware are the ingredients for success at this extraordinarily trendy address.

A former oil factory (its giant brick fireplace is still in place) next to the equally popular Fábrica de Arte Cubano, El Cocinero attracts hipsters on the lookout for the next new trend.

The hard-to-get dining tables are at the top of a long flight of stairs. Choose the pleasantly breezy lounge terrace, or stay inside where it's cosy. The industrial architecture creates a relaxed but stylish atmosphere.

Foodies flock to this restaurant, which opened in 2013, because of the good music, sophisticated cocktails, and cuisine that blends the flavours of local produce with culinary traditions from around the world (Cuban lamb with Indian influences, duck with bitter Caribbean orange…).
