When it comes to food, Habaneros don’t joke around. If you go to a restaurant you’ll be served a dish too big to finish. But in the midst of a busy day, who has time to sit down at a restaurant? This is the reason why Havana has developed an extremely diverse and lively street food scene. Join our Free Havana Food Tour and discover the Cuban capital’s tastiest side!

Savour the cheapest and yummiest lobster in the world! Enjoy a slice of Cuban pizza and eat the best Ropa Vieja in town – this dish, which literally means “old clothes”, consists of shredded beef with onions and peppers–much tastier than you’d imagine from its name!

The secret to Cuban street food’s deliciousness is its natural ingredients; on our Food Tour of Havana you’ll be seduced by its simple and diverse essence. To get the best experience from this tour, we recommend that you save your appetite, so don’t eat breakfast beforehand!

I would highly recommend this tour

5 out of 5

Excellent tour with Julie. Just as advertised, free and tip what you want at the end. It was about a 4.5 hour tour. We paid for food but she also paid a few places on our behalf. Great, safe way, to try Cuban food as it was apparent that she knew all the restaurant staff. We had fried malanga, frozen (soft-serve), coffee, guava pastry, street corn, lobster with plantains and a coconut sweet ball. We also visited a local market. Nice group of people in our tour from all over the world. I would highly recommend this tour.

A great way to get to know a city

5 out of 5

I took two tours with Strawberry--a walking tour of the city and a food tour. A food tour is, in my opinion, a great way to get to know a place. This tour introduced me to hands down the best coffee shop on Havana--O'Reilly's. Try the Bonbon--foam on top, a layer of strong coffee in the middle, and sweetened condensed milk in the bottom, served in a glass so that you can admire the layers before you stir and drink it. The guide, Alex, also showed us a local market, a great place for ice cream, and introduced us to the small sweet bananas you can find in Havana.I met some great people, got a nice sampling of the food Havana has to offer, and started learning my way around the old city. Highly recommend.
