Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Amazing service...air conditioning...and a relaxing atmosphere. It's a perfect neighborhood spot to grab a drink or have a few tacos.

Outstanding food, cocktails and service. We've had octopus, tacos, sweets and daiquiri cocktails and everything was the best we've had in Cuba. Can not recommend more. Just be sure to bring enough Pesos, since their exchange rate for Euros is not the best.

We happened to hear about this place from someone at the airport so decided to give it a go after a couple of nights of bad food experience in Havana. We were all pleasantly surprised by the quality and taste of food and drinks here....Good portion size, not cheap but not too costly either. Their carrot croquettes and rice and beans were super flavourful. The tacos were very tasty and fresh. The drinks were super fresh and indulgent. We had such a satisfying and wholesome meal and would thank them for making our experience in Cuba worth remembering. The service we received was friendly and professional.More

We were blessed to be enjoy the best mojito with the best group of people we have met in Cuba. The mojitos are very quite substantial and made with their fresh ingredients. Not to mention the staff are friendly, honest, warm, and welcoming. We are...definitely going back. Do not forget they make the best mojito in Havana!More

Great atmosphere, great food, great drinks. The seafood is the best in all havana. Tuna tartar was beyond expectation, as well as tacos with octopus. The place is super nice and the staff is very helpful.

First off I must say, I fully enjoyed my visit to this restaurant! The staff is friendly and professional. The atmosphere relaxing with a mature setting, just right for families, couples or as in my case, a moment to enjoy one's own company. The meal...was beyond my expectations and I have absolutely no regrets whatsoever dining here. I will definitely be back. 10/10 honestly overall! The food was well prepared and the setting of the plata beautiful 👌. I had a Mojito which hit the spot. (Wish I got two lol).I highly recommend this to both students and tourists while you are in the Habana Vieja área. @lkk_vlogsMore

When I want to drink something delicious it is impossible not to think of Lo De Monik. They serve a Mojito Frappe with a beer. That mixed taste is like drink the real Cuban flavour concentrate with the seat of the world. Is like the...ambiance that the Cuban is too original, organic, too mixed and concentrated on the island and with all the desire to discover the rest of the world. I feel that I am discovering something new every time I drink a Mojito Loco (A Crazy Mojito) My suggestion is to go for a Mojito Loco and discover the real Cuba.More

We stopped here on arriving in havana, and were so pleased to find it was open! We had lunch and great coffee to fuel us for an afternoon of exploring the old town. The staff were so welcoming and friendly and kindly stored our luggage...for us until our accommodation opened. Their menu includes mojito locos! They looked incredible! And the tacos..... oh the tacos!More

While travelling in Cuba we visited a lot of restaurants. This was one of the best. Delicious food, really big drinks and nice prices. Maybe one of the biggest GinTonics WE ever had

I visited this small "paladar" but unique with its Mojito Loco. Food is very well elaborated and presented, as well as service is magnificent. I highly recommend this place if you want to scape from the big and crowded "paladar" in Havana Vieja.

Small restaurant but punches above its weight. Excellent cocktails and smart service. Hubby chose a fillet steak and I had a traditional Cuban pork dish. By far hubby had the best meal. He still raves about it!! I could have eaten here again and again.

I dont think they do reservations. It's a small, casual place and I've never seen every table taken.
