In the street you have the smell of sewers and the waitress was really not nice and agressive, after two questions, I decided to leave for a nicer place... Plus it's on the most touristic street of Havana, not reprensentative of an Havana bar...

There is something so fun about dinning on the street in Havana. Surrounded by music and dancing you will enjoy the tasty menu and good drinks. Good spot for a mid day lunch!

I popped in as there was a live band playing. The atmosphere was really cool while the music was on but this was their last song. Ok this happens. Then the mojito I had ordered arrived. It tasted like the melting water you get in your glass from the ice when you've just finished a mojito. I didn't finish it;... More

We could happily spend hours here. Corazones de Fuego are a superb band and play every other day - but im sure the others are good too. Buy their CD, you wont be disappointed. If they have a copy of their old one, with Chan Chan and Yolanda on, get that too, its bizarely excellent for a band playing in... More

The music at this place is amazing and is what drew us into the Cafe. The service was not great and the food was not good. Go for the lively atmosphere and great music and enjoy a cocktail while listening to the music but think twice about ordering any food.

Stopped for a drink in the evening for great music and authentic Cuban bar atmosphere. Crowded bar area with many people out on the street enjoying the band. Only had a drink, no idea what food is like.

We only had nibbles here - olives and cheese with a handful of beers. The music is excellent and people stand outside, who can't get in for lack of space, and dance. We stopped in on every day of our visit.

Looked at the menu as we passed. It seemed interesting enough and the interior appeared pleasant. Half of the items on the menu were not available. Apparently they only serve mixed drinks since they didn't have any beer. We finally ordered cuba libres and sandwiches. The drinks were good and came out immediately but it took close to 40 minutes... More

We sat on the terrace 3 times and listened the music and had mojitos after dinner. This was one of the only places in this area with the terrace and music. Did not eat here. this is the place for music and drinks for me.
