Hemingways favorite daiquiri bar and for good reason! Although it's a popular tourist destination the daiquiris did not disappoint and was such a fun environment. The live band was very interactive and made for a lively afternoon libation location!

Great place for Daiquiri's, Ernest Hemingway's favorite bar in Havana Vieja. The motto of the bar was written as "la cuna del daiquiri", which translates in English to
"the cradle of daiquiri".

This is daiquiri central. You have just about every tourist that hits Havana coming through here sooner or later. This restaurant is more spacious and pompous than La Bodeguita del Medio. Regardless of the space, it still gets jam packed. This place also has live band playing, but I actually enjoyed the bands at La Bodeguita better. The daiquiri itself did not impress me. I actually had a better daiquiri at El Zagüan.

We ended up having lunch here thanks to the rain. It was a pleasant dinner. The dinning area is pretty fancy and the service is not lacking.

The Floridita is made famous by Hemingway as his was one of his favorite wateringholes in Cuba. The drink he enjoys here is the daiquiri.

It is a very nicely restored bar, however it feels a bit disconnected from the real Cuba, daiquiris are good but really overpriced... Music was very good & there is a very nice bronze statue of Hemingway sitting in the bar. Rumour is that his personal record of daiquiri consumption was 12 glasses... & If you can break Hemingway's record you can have the 13th glass for free... :)

The claim to fame here is the daiquiri. While good it is not great and it is super overpriced. The music is touristy, and the service is horrible. However the bar is beautifully restored so that it feels as it may have when Hemingway actually did frequent it, and there are some cool pictures on the wall to check out, including a good one of Hemingway whispering in a young Castro's ear.

El Floridita is the spot where Ernest Hemingway had his daiquiris when he was living in Cuba. A nice bar/restaurant where of course they serve the best Daiquiris in Cuba. A must on every tourist's list when visiting Habana.

It's not just a place, but a real piece of Cuba's history. Here you can taste good dishes - soups and sandwiches for lunch. But what you absolutely must not miss is the daiquiri, because you will never drink one so good again.

Que es la Habana sino su gente su musica, su historia, yo soy cubano y recomiendo conocer este sitio. Este bar es para ir una vez en la vida, tomarse un Daiquiri, empaparse de historia Y seguir tu camino por La Habana. La pasarás bien y conocerás un bar muy famoso.
