What a great little bar this is, excellent location, and totally amazing at night, excellent choice of Cuban rums available and a choice of small and large plates depending on your mood, if in Cartegena, it's a must visit for those rum enthusiasts.

We came to have some mojitos which were not exactly great, but the live Cuban music is absolutely brilliant. Great atmosphere, excellent service. I shall return for the music but would stick to orange juice.
