It´s emblematic of Havana.. I tried every daiquiri on the menu and would recommend them all with the exception of the banana one.. good live music, the service not the greatest, but the overall atmosphere makes it an experience worth remembering.

I'm a floridian so I had to stop by. With so many new options around "El Floridita" needs to up their game. They are stuck in the 50's with the rest of Cuba. The daiquiris are skim, served on martini glasses. They are also overpriced...More

Hemingway must be proud to be sit on this bar .They call this bar “Cuna del daiquiri “ that means where daiquiri was born. Take your picture and drink a lot

Famous bar where Hemingway wrote. Forget eating. Come before dinner around 630-7pm. They have a great girl singing group. $6 daiquries which are fun and light get into the Cuban mood and move on to somewhere else for dinner.

Although the restaurant setting is beautiful and well-appointed, don’t bother with the food. The famous hang out place of Hemmingway and birthplace of the Daiquiri. Waiters are indolent, careless and tired of tourists that walk in and out by the hundreds every day. Always a...More

I guess this is a must go to place and while it is historic (Hemmingway's hangout), don't expect the service to be anything other than sloooow. It was hard to get the attention of the waiter or the bartender. In their defense, they were pretty...More

The cocktails are very well made and the place is really a must-see. However, the prices are really too expensive for what you get. A little overrated

You don't need a reservation to go in to enjoy the music. You just walk in. I wouldn't think this would be a place you would have dinner. The food may be okay, but probably only okay, and it will be overpriced. There are... More
