We stumbled upon Bar Monserrate after a sweltering few hours of sightseeing one afternoon. It's a beautiful, restored old-fashioned place with a handsome mahogany bar and panelling. And a rockin' house salsa band who clearly love their work. Even the local down-and-outs were grooving on the pavement outside. The staff (hats off to Hector here, the main waiter) are really...

Found this great little bar by chance on way back towards La Floridita. We were drawn in by an amazing Cuban band who were so enjoying playing. It's great for people watching as the windows are open onto the street. Beer was ice cold. Service was quick & we didn't encounter any problem with the bill. Didn't eat but food... More

Nice atmosphere and good music in this bar, which also has a very service minded staff. Remember to check cigar prices before making a purchase ;-)

We've been to Bar Monserratte many times over the years, it's a nice bar! A couple of weeks ago (June 2016) we popped in and ordered 3 draft Cristals, then 3 more, then another 3. We made the classic mistake of of not asking how much the beer was and running up a bill. The bill was 41cuc! We couldn't... More
