  • The extensive rum selection and cocktails are the highlight, accompanied by excellent, often spicy cuisine. Get the camarones al majo with a Rum Manhattan. Definitely request the latter served up.
  • Oh man the Masitas dish is awesome. So good. Caramelized onions to boot, FTW!
  • Really bad Cuban food. Extremely spicy. Would not recommend if you're looking for authentic Cuban food
  • Dope cigar room in the back!
  • Paella De La Bodeguita is the must have!
  • The croquets are awesome
  • Ummmmm if you don't order the rum punch, you're dead to me. It is epic. Epic! So perfectly strong. Do it
  • the shrimp ceviche appetizer is awesome.
  • Camarones Con Mojo(appetizer) is tangy and very good. For entree the Masitas I liked, coconut crusted snapper was sweet and the mashed potato was very buttery.
  • Come for the food, stay for the cigars!
  • Try the Coconut crusted Red Snapper. To die for!
  • Really amazing food and drinks!
  • Get the key lime tart for dessert.
  • Ropa Vieja FTW so yummy!
  • Get the fried yucca, and save room for the Key Lime Tart.
  • Chimay on draught, and the mojitos are unbelievable.
  • Get a dark and stormy
  • Everything here is fantastic. Order whatever and get a mojito with it.
  • Try the Mr. Johnsons' Chocolate Rum Cake
