Description: La Bodeguita del Medio was founded in Cuba in the 1940s as a corner store owned by Angel Martinez. The store became a meeting place for local artists who enjoyed getting together for an afternoon 'Mojito'. The place has preserved the ambiance of the romantic Carribean lifestyle that flourished with Havana. Today the Bodeguita del Medio is famous world wide for Salsa music, fine cigars, its original Mojitos and having guests write their thoughts and comments on the walls of the restaurant.

The atmosphere is like if you were in La Viaja Habana in Cuba. I just taked a couple of drinks (Mojito Cubano) and the were very good, in fact, the best I have taken.

The meal I don´t know because I didn´t eat anything. The service are good not excellent.

Yes, it´s recommendable.

Great Cuban food and music performed by a band of native Cubans. In addition, they have free salsa lessons starting at 8:00 PM. In the weekend it’s better to go a little early because around 9:30- 10:00 it gets really crowded. The décor is original and the service was outstanding- Valentin and the rest of the waiting staff do a great job in providing an excellent service.

Well I guess you go to this place for the music and entertainment. I love Cuban food and my buddy hyped this place up. He over hyped it because when the food came it was just okay. Drinks and service we good and the music was what carries this place. Go for the drinks and entertainment.
