La Bodeguita del Medio was the place where Ernest Hemingway used to drink his mojito! I expected a lot from this bar and I have to say I was not disappointed. Despite the busloads of tourists and the somewhat commercial vibe, you do feel the history. The live music played by a local band intensified this feeling. The South American tourists who asked me to dance made it even better...!
I did not try out the restaurant, so I can't give you any advice on that (although the food did not look very appealing). But I know one thing: when in Havana... a mojito at La Bodeguita cannot be missed!
