We stopped by because it is a "must see" place but the Mojitos were pretty average and even if the place has a lot of history it was just full of tourists. Nothing special...have a Mojito and move on...

We were taken here as part of an evening trip, this is a restaurant frequented by Ernest Hemingway, maybe its the sort of place you would pass by - but don't - the entrance is narrow and not too inviting but once inside it opens out into the restaurant. We had a typical Cuban meal, well presented and plenty of... More

Order a mojito in one of Hemingway's famous hang-outs. The drinks are pricey compared to other places but I don't blame them raking it in & living off it's history. It is worth it.

We popped in for a drink for 15-20 minutes to cool from the sun & of course a mojito was the only thing we were ever going to order in one of Hemingway's famous hang-outs. Memorabilia throughout, free toilets & a half decent drink to cool off. You can also eat in the back of the bar but we were... More

If Hemingway came back to life he would take back what he said about La Bodeguita! They're very watery, don't have any angostura.

One of those sites where you fell disappointed and deceived in a trip. First of all, no native cubans around. Not allowed. Secondly, no good food nor drinks let alone any comfort. Unfortunately, living on its past.

A great place to really soak up the atmosphere whilst sipping your Mojito's at a great bar with a real party atmosphere. Live music that is great, entertaining and infectious ...... You won't be able to walk past, go in and enjoy!

This is one of the stop you must do when you visit l'Havana. We went there just arrived in the city and for the last mojito before leaving. The mojito was really good, but what made the difference was the atmosphere. There was a band playing live music, and full of people coming just for a a quick cocktail

Everyone comes here because it says it's a tourist joint. It was so hot and packed like sardines inside. Even spilling into the street.
