Guantanamera is an instant escape from Midtown Manhattan to chic Old Havana.
Guantanamera is a friendly, fun, vibrant Cuban restaurant featuring traditional Cuban fare, magnificent mojitos, complimentary hand-rolled cigars on Fridays and Saturdays, & Live Cuban music. As indelibly Cuban as the classic love song that bestowed its name, Guantanamera, captures the essence of Old Havana with its exotic décor featuring exposed brick, candle-lit tables, rattan-covered ceiling fans, and hand-painted folkloric murals.
Open since July 4, 2005, Guantanamera is located at 939 Eighth Avenue, steps away from the Theatre District. Diners are invited to feast on homemade Cuban specialties using the freshest ingredients, complimented with superb service in a warm and inviting atmosphere. In addition to the unique dining experience, we offer an exquisite bar and lounge area with a distinctive assortment of fine wines, rums, liquors, specialty cocktails, and exceptional appetizers. For those who enjoy dining to the beat of Live salsa, rumba, and cha-cha, Guantanamera pumps up the volume with Live music and dancing Tuesday to Sunday from 9pm to 1am. So come and join us, and let the rhythm transport you to a place where rum libations flow, the music moves you, and the food feeds your soul.
