I nearly got claustrophobic in this bar as there were millions of people wanting to do the same than I wanted: to drink a Mojito there where Ernest Hemingway drank his mojitos. The mojito it self was not anything special. Just a mojito like they do in any bar in Cuba. Only more expensive. It is not like in Floridita... More

Meal in the hemingway bar was very good and i got a fresh mojito and the atmosphere was very good, our tour manager did a reservation before, without that no chance to get a sit.

The mojitos and the atmosphere are the best thing about this restaurant, We really enjoyed it, has a great atmosphere with music and cocktails. The food is also good, for Cuba. There is minimal choice, but there is little to offer in Cuba. We enjoyed it and we even met an oscar winning celebrity while we were there. I would... More

Had lunch and a mojito here on the last day of an organised tour of Cuba and it was a fitting end to the holiday. The food was good and the band was great - and the loos were probably the best we came across on our holiday!! Friendly staff.

Real attraction and permanent show for the tourist that are filling the place days and evenings. This is a small local but very pleasant and picturesque.

If you visit Puerto Vallarata this is one to go to. It is on the promenade and is a really cool place to have a drink. There are live bands so if you want a late night you can stay or have a drink or just dinner/lunch you can do that too. Great Mojito's!!

Bar in Old Havana where Hemingway drank his mojitos. Authentic small bar on the street with restaurant behind. Stand up room with a great bartender and band.

It is a Mojito production line... But compared to Floridita it has charm...when you see that the whole bar is covered by engravings and graffiti from visitors from all around the world with its open doors and people sitting on the street in front of it has a feel of a local bar in your neighborhood (something like famous TV...
