Very nice place to sit down and cool off with probably the best daiquiri I've ever had. The place had a great vibe. Didn't eat there, so I can't judge the food; but everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves.

Maybe back when Hemingway frequented this bar it wasn't so gosh darn packed! What is the draw? There is a bronze statue situated in the corner of the bar, supposedly where Hemingway liked to sit. You really can't enjoy yourself unless you came right when...More

Sit at the var where Hemingway sat - drink his cocktails - enjoy the warmth and history which the bar exudes. A special part of our trip to Havana.

Nice place but a little overrated. The daiquiris are very strong and not great for the “best” daiquiri in Cuba. They have live shows which are nice and you have to get your picture with Hemingway.

Here is a bar where you can feel the Hemingway while drinking Frozen Daiquiri. It ’s always crowded, but do n’t forget to take a picture with the statue of Hemingway.

Maybe super crowded. But it worth the wait. It's an iconic Cuban place more that any political point of view you have to remember why Hemingway almost lived here.

If it's good enough for Hemingway, then it's good enough for us. We went a few times for the daiquiris.

You don't need a reservation to go in to enjoy the music. You just walk in. I wouldn't think this would be a place you would have dinner. The food may be okay, but probably only okay, and it will be overpriced. There are... More
