My favorite part of Azucar restaurant in Plaza Vieja isn't the trendy setting, delicious food and drinks, or perfect location. My favorite part of Azucar is that it's one of the many restaurants that began when the government allowed Cubans to open their own businesses -- plus it's owned by a woman.
The setting offers a modern vibe in Old Havana, and is decorated with slick photography, reminiscent of a Miami dining experience. The food is excellent, and the drinks are some of the best in Havana. Outdoor, balcony seating is a great way to spend a night overlooking Plaza Vieja in Old Havana.
