Indisputably the best coffee and Cuban cigars. Not much to see, in a restaurant I take a soup of malanga and I was served cold, bad and the worst Cuban sandwich I have eaten there. The street is dirty and there are many homeless.

We had high expectations for Little Havana, but a drive down Calle Ocho seemed like just another Hispanic neighborhood and left us saying "so what". Evidently it's a lot more lively during festivals and parades, but the rest of the time it's probably not worth the effort.

We went here with our tour bus. The Miami tour bus does Little havanna and Calle Ocho. A lot of Cuban culture. Worth a visit

Wow! My sister and I went to the sidewalk restaurant on the 50% off night. Even then it was spendy, but well worth it. Their virgin Margaritas are the same price as the regular alcohol ones, but were very tasty - just enormous. The lobster was wonderful.

Probably the most interesting part of Little Havana and a good opportunity to submerge yourself in the Cuban culture. Not far from downtown and worth your visit.

We had a lot of fun walking around and eating while sightseeing around little Havana. My husband and I really liked seeing the people in Domino Park.

Always amazing, by day or by night, Calle 8 is full of tipican cuban shops, bars, markets, and tobacco shops. Don't forget to eat something at Versailles and walk around for feel the good vibes!!
