The British magazine ranks this Huanchaquero establishment among several other renowned places, some of which are even owned by Michelin-starred chefs.

Surprise recognition

“I was surprised, I don’t know how they found out, who put it; we have clients from different parts, French, Italians… –Comments Mrs. Jesús–; every time foreigners came, they always took photos of the ceviche they were tasting, ”she tries to explain to herself.

Seal’s text gives an idea about where the recognition came from and points out that another famous Cuban chef, living in the United States, Maricel Presilla, met in Caribbean the recipe for this ceviche that he later included in one of his books.

Everything always fresh

If you ask Mrs. Jesús, she says that the secret of her ceviche is that “We try to do our best, everything fresh.” The dishes with grape eye and corvina –in addition to the mixed ceviche– are the most requested by customers. “People leave happy,” he says.

National Geographic highlights the role played in the gastronomic experience by the good view of the sea offered by this restaurant and the feeling of the sea breeze in an open living room. Perfect in times of forced ventilation.
