The staff in this bar are fantastic. The food is simple but good, the drinks are great and the music superb. This is the Havana you dreamt of before your first visit. I would strongly recommend enjoying the electric atmosphere of this place.

The mohito was ok, but they ripped us off charging 5,70 CUC for one drink, although the menu said 3 CUC. "Service was included" the waiter replied to our query. And what service it was!

Great spot for a drink or snack after sightseeing. Good food, friendly staff and good music . Just round the corner from parque Central, so much cheaper then the big hotels on the square.

Hm... What to say... Great band, great cocktails, great location, great interior... But... They are ripping tourists off! We received a check stating only the total without the breakdown. As it was much higher then expected we asked for explanation. Mysteriously, perfectly English speaking waiter suddenly speaks only Spanish... After a discussion (and we can barely speak Spanish!) we realized... More

Two years ago friends and I enjoyed our nights at Bar Monserrate. This past week I stopped in with my family. The band was ok. When the check arrived I was shocked at the cost. I asked the waiter to show me a drink menu. He changed a few items but I was still ripped off to the tune of... More

This used to be our favourite afternoon stop off in Havana. It has become a rip off joint and the once vibrant music is a pastiche of its former self. Avoid at all costs m

This place is central but I would not recommend this place to anyone! We were a group of 13 and the waiters were quick to take in our group. It seemed reasonably priced and as it was getting on late on Friday evening we thought why not. The music (live) is good but super loud. Many things we asked for... More

Well you can't have everything. The bar looks nice and there was a decent cuban band playing when we visited on Sunday afternoon. But the food was the worst we had in Cuba (and that is saying something). The burger was utterly inedible, avoid!!!! Beer taste watered down, and the price at the end was 17 CUcs which was 5...

Although this seems to be a popular place, the music was so loud we had to shout at the server who took our orders. I ordered only Buccanero beer and it took a long time to get my order. The food order was confused and we were brought the wrong food. Not a place I would go back to with... More
