Promoted by Hemingway as the best place for Mojito in Havana . It is amazing to watch the amount of cocktails they sell each evening. We came back there a few times !! Wonderful atmosphere !!

You can get here by foot from cruise terminal. We did not go inside because it was PACKED, but seems like all the locals go here. I will definitely have a drink here next time we are in Cuba

We stopped here for a mojito on our walking tour of Havana. The place was packed and the drinks were amazing! Everyone was very friendly. I wish we could have stayed longer.

Nice little place in the heart of the old town. Cosy and touristy (can get very crowded) but the cocktails were great. Worth a visit.

This place was extremely crowded, so we didn't go in, plus we had excellent mojitos in a nice quiet place! Disappointed I forgot my sharpie,s so I could write my name on the wall though.

Friendly place to have a drink listening to live music and have dinner if you like with friends and family surrounded by nice people!

You need to stop also here in Havana to feel the real local sensations. The atmosphere is simply exiting and particular; words aren’t enough to explain that! I tasted an absolute Mojito in a wonderful bodeguita!
