The best mojitos in Old Havana

We go to this place with friends and have a great time. Drink the best mojitos and listen the live tropical music.

My husband and I had the VERY unfortunate timing of arriving right when a cruise ship tour was coming in and that just SUCKED. Granted, they weren't there very long but it ruined the experience on many levels. First, the bartenders were super rude because they were so busy and were cranking out drinks so quickly they were weak and... More

Not much more to say than a great literate used to drink mojoitos here. There is so muchmore interesting things to do in Old Havana.

When we arrived we were so happy we found a lively place, we entered and ordered 2 mojitos. While i was making a movie from the athmosphere the waiter starts shouting at us that the mojitos are there (wich we could easly see). It was rude from him, they don't smile and don't have a minimum of finess or attention... More

We visited because this is where Hemingway visited - with photos on the wall of this famous writer as well as photos of Fidel. The mojito's were OK - with musicians playing music in the corner. Did not have any intention to eat here although there seemed to be plenty of seating. Its neat because of all the signature on... More

We went there because this was apparently the place to go to get a good mojito. The mojito was not good and they charge 5 CUC, when you can normally have one (as bad) for 3 CUC. The place itself was nice, quite crowded in the evening, and live music was good.

Again as I said with El Floridita, La Bodeguita has to be visited for the History it has. And again you may get better and cheaper Mojitos in other places, though I have to say cheaper yes, better? Not in our experience as every Mojito we had in Cuba until we visited here was pretty poor if not at times... More

This is the place where it is said was visited by Hemminway. The place is very small, and a band is performing cuban music. I tryed the "Mojito" drink but I have to say that I have tryed better Mojitos around Cuba. It is the kind of place that you can go just for fun but not for long and... More

The place has a nice vibe and you can meet some interesting people from around the world, but I don't think the Mojitos are worth the $5 when you can get them everywhere else for half the price. You also have to have good timing or you'll never get a seat. I've never actually eaten at the restaurant so I... More

Not as good as Floridita, if you don't drink Mojito's the barman gives you a funny look, my wife wanted Vodka and coke, lol, it's worth the one drink to say you have been, never had food, looked compact and busy.
