Walking through the streets of Old Havana, this place was highly recommended by the locals and tourists alike and so I had my dinner there..The shrimps were just awesome, although they could’ve been easy on the salt..Tried the Mojito (This place claims to be the birthplace) but wasn’t really impressed,being a food and beverage professional myself, it tasted like rum with soda and so I enjoyed The shrimps with a beer thereafter..

I mean, sure, it's packed full of tourists, but it is so fun. A must do for a mojito or a few. We enjoyed the live music and went a couple times for cocktail hour in the afternoon. We only had drinks.

I have never eaten here, but every time I go with friends for one or two mojitos. The master of the drink is Roberto - he is making mojitos since 40 years working on the same place. THe taste of the drink is amazing, but only when he is there, There is a small band as well. It closes at 11:00pm. The statue of Hemingway, the personal belongings of Aliende and the signatures of the visitors on the wall, the old wood furniture, the 80 years old fridges, makes it unique place.

This was one of Hemingways haunts in Cube. Mojitos are great and atmosphere is very fun. When we were there a band was playing and they were very good. Food was excellent Cuban cuisine. A fun place with great food.
