LBDM is a Cuban bar and restaurant behind the QVB. The house cocktail is of course the Mojito, at $10 it is pretty good value. Other cocktails I tried were the Hemingway Special ($16) and Ernest’s Breakfast ($17) - both of which I loved! You definitely don’t come here from a cheap night out but the cocktails are well worth it.
After a couple of cocktails my friend and I shared the Paella Criolla ($49). The serving (for two) isn’t huge and didn’t have a lot of seafood. I also found the rice very hard. Overall I’ve had much better Paella elsewhere so I was left a little disappointed.
The atmosphere of LBDM is lively and buzzing – especially after work. Peak time appears to be between 6-8pm. After 8pm the live Cuban band plays in the downstairs bar, accompanied by Salsa dancing.
This is a great place to hang out with friends. Really lovely décor, friendly staff & good cocktails.
