La Torre de Marfil
A place with a cozy and friendly atmosphere that reminds us of bygone days of trade with the East. The restaurant recreates the wisdom and savoir faire of those first Cantonese immigrants, who prepared their food on days of celebration over 150 years ago, always preserving red and gold as the colors used in Chinese celebrations. La Torre de Marfil has a main lounge, an air conditioned private lounge, a pagoda and a beautiful central courtyard or Chinese garden, all waiting to accommodate the customer. The specialty of the house is Fideo Cabello de Ángel, a traditional Cantonese dish that comes with shrimp, veal, pork or chicken. Other special dishes of the house are Chinese soups and wan toms, and special offers for vegetarians. La Torre de Marfil also has a shop specialized in Chinese products like traditional Chinese medication, tea and aromatic herbs.

La Torre de Marfil is located in Havana
Capital of Cuba and the country's administrative, political, cultural and scientific center, it is also the capital of two provinces: City of Havana and Havana. Though only around 280 square miles (727 square kilometers) in size-0.65 percent of the archipelago's total area.
The Old Havana and system of forts led UNESCO to declare it a part of world heritage in 1982. Founded on its present site in 1519, the settlement of San Cristobal de La Habana prospered mainly due to its bay, which was a natural port of call for ships sailing to and from the New World. Starting in 1634, because of its strategic location, San Cristobal de La Habana was considered the key to the New World-as attested to by royal letters patent-and the main defense of the West Indies.
The Cuban capital consists of an immense number of buildings in a wide range of architectural styles, built in the course of nearly five centuries. These styles range from the pre-baroque to the baroque, neo-Gothic, neoclassical, eclectic, art noveau and art-deco, to the modern.
Alejo Carpentier, one of Cuba's most famous authors, called it "the city of columns" and focused attention on its streets, which he considered a perennially rich show of life, humanity and contrasts that was bound to entertain any observer.
Over 14 kilometers of excellent beaches lie to the east of the Cuban capital. To the south, a green belt contributes to a healthful atmosphere.

La Torre de Marfil - Elegant and traditional, with good Chinese food, including arroz frito, a one-course meal with fried rice, vegetables and an assortment or meats. Not mush atmosphere but good value.
The only Chinese restaurant in old Havana is set on a very busy tourist throughfare through old Havana but never seems to attract the passing tourist trade. It is a shame since it is a peaceful place with reasonable food. Look out for the red Chinese lanterns hanging outside.
