The pina coladas we had were by far the best in habana. We went here for the drinks and the music. The live music is every night until 10pm. The food is amazing as well. The prices for drinks is very reasonable.

We were there for dinner two times and had a great time! Staff, food and music made a great evening. Local cuisine is great and if you are homesick you will probably get the best 'Bratwurst' and spaghetti in all Cuba! Kurt imported its 'Swissness'...More
