The famous mojito is not so good. Because they prepare the drinks so quick for a lot of people at the same time, they are not able to catch the original taste.

Where Mojito was born - live music, loud, vivid. Exchange your currency into Peso on the street before heading there, it runs on bank rate。

It was noon on a Sunday when I visited this bar where it is claimed to have created the mojito. It was crowded in the bar and outside in front of the bar. There were street performers entertaining for tips. Souvenir vendors were located next...to the bar. There were a number of tourists watching and filming the bartender making mojitos. It was a fun Cuban street vibe experience.More

This is supposedly the birthplace of the mojito and our guide told us it was a bar purchased by Hemingway's wife for him to drink at as a regular to stop his nightly pub crawls. Bring a pen so that you can sign your name...on the walls to indicate you have been here.More

Nice food, good atmosphere and quick/friendly service. We felt the food was reasonably priced - although the mojitos here were very expensive (but to be expected for Hemingway’s hangout!). Would recommend & return!

Attempted to visit mid morning but the small bar was crammed. Returned mid afternoon to our surprise the place was empty. Did the tourist thing and had mojitos, which they have a continuous supply of glasses with mint lined up on the bar. You can...sign your name where countless thousand have done before, both inside and outside this establishment. Like most bars in Havana there is a live band playing for tips, drinks are little more expensive than other joints but hey this is your chance to drink in a piece of Havana history.More

This traditional place is always full of tourists, but we were lucky to get a table and we were not disappointed! The food was excellent for a very reasonable price. And being the birthplace of the mojito, we had to have a few, which were...also great! A special thank you for our server Donesky, who was very friendly and helpful!More
