Visited after a day of touring in Havana, and it was wonderful. The food was good, and the drinks were great! Friendly and helpful staff, and overall an enjoyable experience.

We stopped here to basically use public WiFi while we had a few mojitos (5CUC per drink versus 2.50CUC elsewhere). The service is quick and speedy not very personable; I imagine it’s because it’s a busy places full of tourists. The attraction is that Earnest...More

As part of a tour of Havana we had a delicious lunch and mojito at this restaurant. Very nice musical entertainment during the lunch. Can't speak in regard to price since our visit was included as part of a cruise line tour.

Just like the El Floridita is the Bodeguita just as overrun and unbearably full that basically makes no sense to visit other than take a photo from afar, grad a quick drink at best and get out. Obviously it has all the necessary requirements to...More

Yes every tourist in Havana comes here for a mojito. But you know what, when the ambiance is great and the live music always awesome that really isn’t a problem. Swing by here, have a mediocre 5 cuc mojito and breath some Havana history.

It was a nice surprise to be able to go to this iconic bar known for creating the Mojito. The bar itself is small and packed with people, but they line up the glasses prepped for Mojitos and they get them out fast! We also...More

I would say no. There are only 8 bar stools in an "L" shaped bar. It opens up onto the street. Many people get their drinks and stand outside to listen to the local music. Worth the trip. Try off hours and it might not be... More
