El Patio, emblematic center of our traditional culinary art, is set in the very heart of Old Havana´s Historical Center. This 18th Century mansion was the former palace of the Marquis of Aguas Claras III, a beautiful stately house with a light baroque facade located in the Cathedral Square. The monumental fecade,, the stunning stained glasswork, the large colonnade and the central courtyard with its refreshing greenly and lovely fountain clearly overwhelm visitor on their arrival .

El Patio 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.

Review about Restaurants: El PatioExcellent
El Patio Restaurant
El Patio was formerly an 18th-century colonial palace and is located on one of Havana’s most picturesque squares (Plaza de Catedral). There is no better place for people watching and is the perfect place for a drink any time of day or night. A good band plays most of the day. Unfortunately the food is somewhat overpriced and unspectacular. If you don’t care about the money spend 20 bucks on a pepper steak and sit back and enjoy.
