Templete is a bayside restaurant located on the corner of Avenida del Puerto (Port Avenue) and Narciso Lopez Street. This restaurant is named after a neighboring landmark built in 1828 that marks the spot where the settlement of San Cristobal de La Habana was founded in 1519. Originally opened sometime between 1928 and 1931, it was the second restaurant in the city to have this name, and soon became the favorite of sailors, ship captains and port pilots. Known since the 1950s as "The House of Shellfish and International Cuisine", it was famous for its lobsters, shrimp, prawn, clams and delicious paellas, served while customers took in the splendid view of Havana bay. Today, the Templete revives its seafaring tradition in the same atmosphere and continues serving delicious dishes prepared by its excellent Spanish chef. Past and present come together to offer us first-class service and a wide variety of dishes to choose from.

El Templete 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.

El Templete's the jewel in Old Havana's culinary crown. Its Gallego chef's Arkaitz Etxarte sophisticatedly simple take on traditional ingredients gladdens the hearts of Havana foodies who flock to El Templete for his mango duck and chateaubriand accompanied by delightful side dishes and a short but well chosen wine list. Puddings are Lucullan, too: no-one should leave
