Here's a wonderful place for a quiet drink. The intimate café-bar is comfortable yet rustic, with equipale (leather-and-wood) love seats and traditional round cocktail tables. At around 10:30, trova (think Mexican Cat Stevens) by Latino legends Silvio Rodríguez and Pablo Milanés begins; songs composed and sung by the owner liven up the atmosphere. There's never a cover. It opens after 8 pm every night but Sunday (closed Sunday and Monday in low season).
