Fodor's Review

Near the malecón's north end, this world famous franchise restaurant with a fun-loving atmosphere has a bit of a sea view from its second-floor dining room and a Caribbean flavor. Specials vary by season; seek out the roast pork, the Cuban-style paella, or the pork loin in tamarind sauce, and order rice, salad, or fried plantains separately. Like its Havana namesake, La Bodeguita sells Cuban rum and cigars, and the music (canned during the day, live at night)—like the cuisine—is pure cubano. During the day comrades hunch over their laptops to use the free Wi-Fi; it opens at 9 am and is open most nights until past midnight. Try the mojito, a signature Havana drink of lime juice, sugar, white rum, and muddled fresh mint leaves. Offering two-for-one beers at twice the normal restaurant price is bogus, however.
