The place itself is pretty cool and that is where it stops. We did have some good food on Cuba but we didn't have it here. Lobster was terribly overcooked, ropa vieja was really vieja, mojito was just naaah.
I recommend just to see the place, take pictures and keep walking.

Too much tourists and the place is very small.
You can have a better drink anywhere in Havana and more affordable.

Get ready to eat and indulge in ropa vieja and black beans! Must try their traditional Mojitos. Wanted to try their picadillo but they were out of it, I’m sure it was good.

This place is overrated. It is too crowded, too many tours stopping here, mojitos are not well done.
