If you truly desire authentic Cuban music, this is the right place to do it. Very kind staff, you can eat, drink and dance.

The group Cuba Son is extremily good: encompases everything to be expected from traditional Cuban music group: passion, rhythm, vocal and instrumental harmony and excellence.

We went midweek- some might say a mistake as it's too quiet but there was still a fantastic band on and plenty of dancing and drinking going on. If you want the real hot and sticky experience best to visit on a Saturday afternoon when the place is heaving and there's a good variety of acts on.

The Casa de la Trova on the west side of Parque Calixto Garcia is worth checking out. There is a modest stage, beer is reasonably priced, there is no cover charge, and you get to hear some good local musicians but the sound system is not as good as it should be.

Hi to all, I have tried the restaurant in Holguin De La Trova but I have found it OK. The better restaurant is the 1910. Th food is amazing with making use of local fresh produce at all times.
