Excellent authentic cuban flavors. Located in the heart of Havana. The food is the most authentic and original flavor of cuba you can get. The place itself is an experience to visit. The authentic mojitos are awsome made with the real deal of ingredients. The moros carne de cerdo asada y yuca is my preffered dish there. Always you can... More

We went to La Bodeguita del Medio in Varadero. It is a replica of the one in Havana. The seafood is very good. We had a nice meal, great drinks and good music to go with. Love the concept behind the signatures and photos. My friend ordered a mojito and said it was one of her favourite of the week... More

La bodeguita is definitely a "must visit" since it is a very traditional place. Music is great however I was a little disappointed by the mojitos.

Tucked away down a backstreet but no mistaking the place has you approach it. People spilling on to the streets whilst salsa band playing, cool ambience don't miss out, fantastic

Really disappointing. Just a tourist trap. Mojito was run-of-the-mill. Band will hit you up to buy a CD for $10. Go to La Floridita or better yet, Sloppy Joes, which was excellent.

It is a local place, famous because Hemingway used to go there. It is too small and it was very crowded, did not get a chance to go in. 5 to 10 minutes and you see it all.
