“Calle Ocho”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

I enjoyed walking around 'Calle Ocho' and feeling the latin vibe. It felt like I was in some latin american country. There was spanish spoken everywhere and the signs as well. Had a cuban sandwich in a small cuban restaurant. It had a very interesting flavor profile. Loved it.

“WHAT A DUMP”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

Expected a location with some community vibe but this is a dump full of bitter twisted auld fellas playing dominos telling lies about a history that never happened. The street main drag itself is dirty and smelly and full of souvenir shops, souvenirs of what exactly? Then the cigar shops with the 'seeds taken from Cuba and sewn in the Dominican Republic' selling 'Cuban Cigars. Yeah Right.......! What nonsense, I acvtulaly bought some as I smoke Cuban Cigars, (the ones actually grown and rolled in real cigar factory's in Cuba - imagine that) and they are not great, a far cry from a real Montecristo or Cohiba Siglo VI indeed!

To think that people actually leave Havana to go to this dump is mind boggling, housing and money may be in short supply in Havana but compared to this place it is paradise, anyways.....seen it now, won't be back

“Little Havana - dirty and old looking”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

Unless you are Cuban, or you have a specific place you want to eat, this is not a place to just walk around. It is dirty, old and a bit dangerous,

“not the best in miami”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

This place parking is horrible ordeal, the streets are crowded and the language barrier is horrible thing. The only thing to see are the rooster in various corners of the streets.
