We had a fabulous time at this bar. Their band was fantastic great cuban music. Hector was brilliant. We ate here and the food was decent. Not huge portions but good. Visit this bar and you will not be disappointed. Very reasonable prices too.

The perfect alternative to the Floridita. The cocktails half the price. Much fun waiters and a delightful atmosphere off the beaten track.

We stumbled upon Bar Monserrate having just left El Floridita somewhat underwhelmed... It's in the same road, just a couple of hundred yards away, although we thought it quite different indeed. It may not have the pedigree of having been frequented by Hemmingway but we...More

Get away from the crowd and visit a friendly local place with excellent food and drink values and live cuban music from local artists during the early afternoon. Spent a couple of hours there and had a great time.
