Fodor's Review

Old Havana meets the Caribbean here with authentic music and food from what locals call The Big Island. The signature dish is the ropa vieja, a sautéed flank steak served with a rich sauce and it's perfectly spiced and melts in your mouth. Vegetarian and gluten-free offerings are served as well. And their boast of the best mojitos in town is a fair claim. There's hot live music every night, as well as interesting offerings like Poetry Night, when locals get up and express themselves through spoken word. The atmosphere is fun and friendly, and the location ideal for people-watching along the seaport marina. And it's the only place in town to get a famous Cuban sandwich for lunch.
