We popped in this bar post dinner for a drink. Enjoyed a few cocktails, the band were setting up but we didn’t stay to hear. Lots of people eating here too which I was more surprised at and food looked pretty good.More

We were looking for a nice cuban-style bar, and we were not disappointed, we had every mojito available and fell in love with them. Definitely the best classic mojito in town and a superb service from Pablo, we're absolutely coming back!

We were looking for something Cuban themed restaurant, and came out nothing but delighted with the awesome staff, great music and wide and variety of mojitos. Especial thanks to Pablo for the amazing service. Top place in Cartagena.

Lost one star from me because the live music was way too loud. Otherwise, small, quaint, colorful. The food, drinks, atmosphere were awesome. I would not call the food "cuban authentic", but the vibe is fun.
