“A must in old Havana”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

Allthough the prices of famous Hemingway`s "mojito" (and other products and gifts) was waaay overpriced...the atmosphere and live music and feeling is really a MUST.

We really enjoyed there...just go with a flow :) Like it!

“Toursit trap - Avoid”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

As with the Floridita, this is another Hemmingway tourist trap with overpriced drinks and mean measures....DONT BOTHER, Havana Vieja has a lot more to offer than this...search around and you'll be much happier.

“must visit”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

We pretty much stopped by there everyday. The mojito is very good but the entire atmosphere and music (inc upper floor ) is superb. If i could i would have a drink there everyday..

“Squeeze in and PARTY!”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

This place is tiny! The floor space would double if the resident band ever left. You need to go when it's quiet. We eventually got in at 11:00am (never too early!). and enjoyed the whole atmosphere of the place. Try to get a seat at the bar if you can to savour your Mojito.

“Famous for being Famous.”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

This is popular tourist trap is located off the north-west corner of Plaza de la Catedral. The walls are running out of places to accommodate the signing frenzy that is the vogue here. Worth a peak in the door if you happen to be walking past.
