The "Jardin del Eden" ("Garden of Eden") restaurant at the Hotel Raquel serves dishes based on recipes from the traditional Jewish cuisine, the only restaurant in Cuba to do so. Located in a stately eclectic building with truly romantic inner spaces where Art Nouveau prevails, the restaurant adjoins the "Lejaim" Lobby-Bar, a word in Hebrew that means "a toast to life". Its culinary tradition is closely related to certain religious standards and some kosher requirements, such as not eating pork or its by-products, or seafood except for fish with scales and fins. The "Jardin del Eden" was conceived as part of the decoration project of the hotel and for this reason the lobby had to be partitioned with screens. Blue, the prevailing color in Hebrew culture, finds widespread use on the screens, as do other elements of Hebrew traditions, like the Star of David and the Menorah, or the sacred 7-arm chandelier. This is an option Habaguanex and Old Havana's Historical Center offer those with the most exquisite tastes.

Jardin del Eden, Hotel Raquel 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.

This restaurant is located in the lobby of the beautifully restored Hotel Raquel (the stained-glass ceiling is a real highlight of Old Havana). Included in the partly Jewish menu are Hungarian goulash and Israeli salad. Kebabs also feature heavily, with Shashlik del Edén, a combination of plainly cooked fish, chicken among the specials.
