Super crowded outside and at bar, but you can get a table in back or upstairs and have some wonderful ropa vieja and mojitos- and sign the wall! Expensive but well worth it!!!

We really enjoyed the musicians at La Bodeguita del Medio. The drinks were okay but, despite Hemingway's advice, we had better mojitos elsewhere. Worth a visit though for sure.

Booked an evening tour of the old city which included a trip to the fort and a walking tour of the city. At the end of the evening we were taken to La Bodeguita where we were seated in a small room at the rear of the restaurant. We were given Mojitas - which were good and a selection of dishes - rice/beans; chicken beef, salad etc. Felt we were trying proper Cuban food and for an event of that type the food was really good. Meal finished with strange ice-cream and none of us could quite pick up the flavour - possible peanut? Good atmosphere and very buzzy - live band (as in most of the bars in Cuba) were good.

This bar is well known worldwide, owner has bars in probably more than 2 or 3 countries. Great atmosphere, great bands live music, food is excellent. Visited by every single tourist coming to Cuba. Lots of fun and lots of people, little uncomfortable because day and night is packed.

You expect to meet Hemingway at the bar. A lot of people , all are waiting to enter; some just visit, others to drink the famous Mojito, others take lunch. All the walls are filled with the signatures of those who passed by here. An unique experience!!!!
