The burgers here are amongst the most delicious items on their menu. However, what really sets them apart is the fact that they serve them with cute little sombrero hats. 

Order a fresh Cuban juice, set your hat-wearing burger up just right, and snap a photo of them all together for the perfect Instagram post.

PaZillo is one of the trendiest gastro bars and restaurants in Havana. The cute, modern interior design spills out onto their patio, which is the perfect place to order a juicy burger.

One traveller noted that the place serves great food in a great ambience with great music. What more can you ask for on a night out in Cuba?

6. Sloppy Joe’s Bar

Okay, so a sloppy joe is technically a burger, right? The sloppy joe they serve at this local institution is so delicious that it’s worth a mention on the list of the best burgers in Havana.

It’s delectably sloppy, perfectly put together, and served on top of extremely fresh buns. The best part? The restaurant is smack dab in the middle of the city centre, which makes it a great stop for lunch as you make your way through all of the sights in Havana.

7. Jesus Maria 20

You’ll head to Jesus Maria 20 for the extremely relaxing terrace, but you’ll stay for the quality of the food they serve their guests.

While they don’t serve burgers exclusively, we’ve tried them out personally and they’re amongst some of the best burgers in Havana for sure.
