“Didn't it here... But a daiquiri is kind of a must”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

The bar has friendly staff and a good cuban band - and promote the daiquiri, with Hemingway's statue in the corner. Having said that, if this bar was in the UK or USA they would be totally cashing in on that connection. Here, if you don't know about Hemingway it's just a statue of a grumpy old man!!
The drinks are more expensive than other bars we tried, and we did move on to somewhere with a more relaxed feel but it has to be on the tick box list!

“Overpriced”
Reviewed December 13, 2013

As all the bars do, this one screams "Hemingway" more than others. A good salsa band, but aimed squarely at the tourists

“Best Daiquiri”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

Was my third visit to Havana and stopped by for a daiquiri which was just as great as the first two times. Have never eaten the food here but love the location and the best daiquiri's in the world - in my opinion!

“amazing though touristy”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

packed the whole time, live music, the bar tender does up 30 + daiquiris and they're gone in a couple of minutes,
there is a bronze sculpture in the corner and it really feels as if hemingway is watching you
after 2 daiquiris each ( €6 a go ) and watching what was going on for ages we left, a place you have to go to !

“Exciting atmosphere”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

Fun place to go to if you want to remember Heamingway. The Daiqueries are wonderful but at £4 quite expensive compared to the rest of Cuba. But a visit here is a must if you are in Old Havana.
